Well, I’m late to the party this month. If you are in the US, I hope you had a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving. It seemed like I ate my way through November, but forgot to take photos for much of it. But, here’s what I did manage to get for PJ’s theme this month….Whatcha Eatin’?

Twix helped me make a family favorite…Cherry Delight. It’s a wonderful combination of cream cheese and Cool Whip poured into a graham cracker/butter crust, topped with cherry pie filling and sprinkled with graham cracker crumbs.

The above dessert topped off an early family Thanksgiving meal. These are the remnants (aka: leftovers) of our get-together. Turkey tryptophan kicked in shortly afterwards.

The official Turkey Day meal happened at my mom’s house this year. It was worth the two and a half hour drive in sloppy, rainy, almost-freezing weather to get there.

When in my mom’s city, the mandatory dessert if French Silk Pie. This decadent guilty pleasure made it home with me to enjoy a day later. Don’t worry, Entrepreneur had his own slice.

It’s time to take care of my feathered friends. It’s a challenge to keep three feeders plus some suet cake holders filled throughout the winter. With bad weather forecasted, these little gluttons can empty a feeder in an afternoon. I wonder how they know? On their menu is sunflower seeds, safflower seeds, thistle, peanuts and dried fruits.
My red-bellied woodpecker doesn’t bother with the feeders when there are so many good bugs buried in the trunks of cedar trees.
There’s my five for November. If you survived the Thanksgiving food coma, check out how others ate their way through November over at PJ’s place.
