I spent my day off thrifting. I picked up some holiday decorations, but mostly just enjoyed being able to run around without the Sprouts.
When I got home, I used up the last of our zucchini (you wouldn't believe how long those suckers can stay fresh just sitting on the counter) making a Zucchini Stuffing Casserole. It's a FABULOUS recipe I got from my friend Sunny when we were moving. Unfortunately, the first batch didn't turn out real well. Mr. Barefoot wanted me to put more stuffing in the casserole, but I forgot to increase the liquid portion of the recipe so things got a little dry. I made 3 batches (2 for freezing), and attempted to make adjustments with the next two, but I guess I won't know how well it turned out until I get a chance to cook them up and eat them.
Now for the question I have for all of you lovely Readers.
I have been looking at my great big pile of holiday decorations and thinking that if I wait until the day after Thanksgiving to start decorating the house it will take me until Christmas Eve to finish. Then I will have to spend all of January taking it all down again.
How early is it okay to put up your holiday decorations? Seriously. If I start now, I will probably be done by Thanksgiving. That would give us a whole month of enjoying it before I had to start taking it all down.
Whaddaya think? Would it be really bad to start now?
