Thankful Thursday

To see more Thursday Thankfulness go to Giving Thanks

I am thankful that this morning God answered a prayer before I could ask. After I was praying someone came to me and told me an answer to one of my requests. I knew the answer came before I had ask.

We have changed our plans and will be leaving for Ohio next week. All of our family is from there and I will be so glad to see them. What do you all think is the best thing to fix ahead of time so I can share in fixing the dinner. I am not sure if we will have room for a cooler. I will be glad to spend time with my mom. She has always had decorations for every season.

I am not sure when I can leave work on Wednesday because of inventory. I will be fixing homemade noodles Monday night for our pre Thanksgiving meal at work. Also, apple dumplings that someone is begging for. I have used this recipe for years and modified it to make a smaller portion rather than using a whole apple for each one.

Apple Dumplings

Pastry ( I use premade crusts from the dairy dept. and cut it in wedges.)
Apple slices

Boil this for 3 minutes:
2/3 C Sugar
1 1/2 C water
2 TBP butter or margarine
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Mix this in a small dish:
1/3 C sugar
1 tsp cinnomon

Place an apple slice or two on a wedge of pastry. Sprinkle with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Place a dab of butter top. Fold pastry around apple. Place in a square glass dish. Continue until the dish is full. Pour the hot liquid on top. Bake at
425 degrees for 1/2 hour or until pastry looks done.

Everyone's posts are so great. Thanks to all for your ideas and beautiful decorations. And thank you for taking the time to share.

Here is a picture I took I couldn't help sharing.

  4. WoW I love the pictures you have on your blog. I'd love to have a prayer bench too. I have a 5 and 2 year old, so I dont get much "quiet prayer time". Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a nice Thanksgiving!
