Jelly Roll Rug


I know we don't really want to use our prized Jelly Rolls  to put on the floor, but this is a cute rug. You could also just use scraps up on this rug. Maybe use an ugly jelly roll? Is there such a thing as an ugly jelly roll? Do you have any of those?

Thanksgiving Menu Ideas and Recipes


Thanksgiving Menu Ideas

Travelling and sharing the traditions of who you are with is fun. However, cooking for Thanksgiving for an Australian can be a bit eye opening. Thankfully I am only cooking for two. Although how do you cook for two with the size of turkeys in America? I haven't even cooked a turkey before. I presume it is like a chook (chicken), although the size of chooks in Australia are like pigeons compared to turkeys in America. I also like simple recipes with simple flavours so these recipes over at Betty Crocker should work for me.


I have wonderful friends with great suggestions although I love this video that a friend sent me. A bit of light heartedness always helps.
