NOVEMBER 2009

November........I love November, it has me thinking about Thanksgiving Dinner with family, Pumpkin Pie, Jack Daniels Sweet Potatoes, homemade Cranberry Sauce! UMMMMM !




Frosty Mornings on the farm. We had our first frost this morning!




Cable Knit socks..........


Christmas Trees all a glow............



Look at these darling ornaments! You Artist need to do these as gifts!













Look at this! I'd LOVE to have A Titans and A Saints for my tree...........The one shown is a USM Golden Eagles.







I had a dream come true on Friday when I got my set of GWTW Plates!









We got them put up on Saturday morning...........











I'm waiting on a pair of Peacock bookends to go where the angel is to hold my copies of GWTW,
Scarlet and the movie...........










The plates are fine china and came in their original boxes with certificates and pamphlets! I waited 20 years to own this set! :)












My sister, bIL and 3 nieces came down from Memphis this weekend to visit. Daddy and Jeanette joined us for dinner. I made a huge pot of Cajun Seafood Gumbo that was awesome!













And a Blackberry Cobbler with some of the BB's we put in the freezer.............
What a delightful time we had! (this isn't mine,I forgot to get a pic)














And......to start the month off right, Vince Young started as the QB for the Titans!!



























































Between Vince and the awesome running back Chris Johnson, the Titans WON their 1st game this year!









































Spanked the Jaguars 30 -13 ! Now yesterday they LOOKED like MY TITANS !!! :)



























The day ended with a beautiful Hunter's Moon coming up over the pond...........






























Which later lit up the pond so beautifully...............


























HAVE A GREAT WEEK EVERYONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!

First a rhapsody in fruit, then the decorations for a wonderful x-mas and a display of GWTW plates, and at last a taste of the Blackberry Cobbler! Thank you for all this! I wish you a great November.

Sheila said...

I'm thinkin' you MUST share the recipe for JD sweet potatoes! And your gumbo as well. (drooling here) Going to get another slice of banana bread before I'm overcome. Happy November!

Your first frost--and we've had snow! Not ready to think about winter yet, but it was forced upon us.
I enjoy seeing your view in different seasons and times of day.

Deb Shucka said...

Your new plates looks perfect in their new home. There's something so satisfying about finally getting something you've waited so long for. I'm happy for you.

Oh your plates are just beautiful, I know you will enjoy them for years to come.
They ARE special !
The food looks absolutely delicious, blackberry cobbler is my favorite, especially with homegrown blackberries.
yes, we have had a couple of frosts already here, but I'm ready for the change of seasons.
Love your bookshelf...what a telented man your husband is ;)

Stop the presses! I want the recipe for the Jack Daniels Sweet Potatoes. Please!

Patience-please said...

We saw the very same moon here! But how have you way down in Mississippi had a hard frost before us way up in western KY?

The gumbo looks so good!

RNSANE said...

GA girl that I am, by birth, I love "Gone With the Wind" - that rascal, Rhett, was so dashing and Scarlett was such a lovable vixen. I never tire of seeing the movie!

The gumbo looks fabulous and I am sure it tasted even better than it looked. Blackberry cobbler, yummy! Must have been fun having guest..and the moon over the lake made for a perfect ending to your eveing.

Tiffany Norris said...

I love November, too! It's wonderful!
Your plates look great; glad they came in OK.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Hi Carol

Yes, please give the recipe for the JD sweet potatoes! Yum! Thanksgiving is a definite favorite holiday of ours.

The GWTW plates look so pretty on display in your new cabinet!

Glad you Titans won! All the NY football teams got beat up this weekend, but YAY for the Yankees! Hopefully they cinch the World Series in Philadelphia tonight!

I love gumbo and I'm making Chef Paul's shrimp and sausage version again this week -- the recipe is on my blog under "Recipes" label :-)

Hugs, Pat

Becca's Dirt said...

Carol - it is my favorite time of year too. The cool crisp temps feel so refreshing and the smell of apple cider and baking. I haven't heard of Jack Daniels sweet potatos. I need to hear about this one.

I have bought most of those GWTW plates for my daughter who collects all things GWTW. She quotes the movie all the time.

Hope you have great day.

Journaling Woman said...

You are very blessed. The plates are beautiful!

Have a good week too.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Girlie, Somehow--I knew you would mention our Titans.. Hopefully, the Saints will keep on winning too.

Love your GWTW plates... That is a perfect place on the top of your new entertainment center. WOW---gorgeous!!!

Your Gumbo and blackberry cobbler sound yummy also.

Hope you are having a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

BlueRidge Boomer said...

I want a pair of those socks!!!
Sounds like you had a great weekend...if the Titans, the Panthers, the Dolphins, The Buccaneers and the Jaugars were all winless.....who's been playing football??!!

Enjoy.....LindaMay

Missy said...

Congratulations on getting those plates that you have been waiting so long for....you must be tickled pink! The look wonderful on your shelves.....

Kat said...

I am with Sheila on sharing the JD sweet potatoes. Something new on the Thanksgivig spread. I am happy for you to get your collector plates, finally!
I watched the Titans game and they played an excellent game. We were flipping between that game and the Bret Farve game. He was so happy to beat GB.
I love being with family, and this time of year always brings us together. Glad your family is close.

Nezzy said...

Your GWTW plates look great in their new home. Sounded like you had the perfect weekend.

Have a beautiful fall week, God bless you girl!

Medora said...

It is cold up here - we had our first frost some time ago - didn't know you all got frost too!

That gumbo looks warm and yummy.

willow said...

Now I'm drooling from that cobbler! Your plates are perfect. Glad to see the woolly socks.

And, Carol, you must share the Jack Daniels sweet potatoes recipe!

Elizabeth Spann Craig said...

It's a cornucopia of pictures! I loved them. Where's our recipes? :)

Arkansas Patti said...

The JD sweet potatoes caught my eye also. Hope a recipe is coming.
Congrats to the Titans. Being a Dolphin fan, I know how long losing spells feel and how great that first win is.

Elizabeth Bradley said...

What a warm and cozy post! Loved every picture.

Angie Muresan said...

Send some of that cobbler my way, won't you?

Marguerite said...

Oh, your plate collection looks beautiful!! And that gumbo, cher!! And the blackberry cobbler!! Yummmie! You are making me want to go into the kitchen and cook these things! So glad that you had a nice visit with your family, too!

Glynis said...

You entertain so well, that was a delightful post Carol, thanks.

Vicki Lane said...

Happy November! That gumbo looks great!

I'm afraid I stray from my weight loss diet at your house. I am getting hungry just looking at it.

It was a great weekend of football, including Monday night football.

Most all my bloggie friends' special teams won.

I followed Vince Young's career at Univ of TX. Texas QBs have difficulty making big time, because most of them, including the present one, are combos of excellent running backs with a talent for passing, instead of a pure passer who scrambles once in a while.

Those are some good looking cable knit socks, Carol, but I'm still drooling over the blackberry cobbler... I loves me some blackbery cobbler!

P.S. I do painted ornaments too!

I just love November too. We've already selected our turkey and dressing recipes for this year. I can't wait!
