I unpacked my red and green fabric and started working on some quilted items for Christmas. Saw a picture on line that gave me the idea for these placemats. I want to explore some more uses for the little Christmas trees. I think they are so cute!

I took this shot on Sunday when we were driving around looking at the work they had been doing on all the ditches. I didn’t download the image to the computer until today. I am standing at the edge of the corn field that runs along the side of our house and buildings. It’s a typical farmstead with a house, trees, sheds, and bins.
I did a lot more cooking than usual today since I have to work tomorrow, and we will have deer hunters at the house. I made chicken and vegetable soup for lunch today with rice krispie bars made with puffed brown rice instead of rice krispies. They were better than the original. They had more flavor. They didn’t last very long. We ate the whole pan.
I also put a roast in the oven about noon at 300 degrees so it would cook slow. Hubby has a hard time eating most meat, but when I slow cook it, then make it into BBQ, he can eat it just fine. So I made a big pot of BBQ with homemade sauce, black beans cooked from the dry beans, gluten free risotto (very good), and cornbread using a mix. The cornbread was the best gluten free mix I have tried. It was so good. A little more like cake than traditional cornbread, but good nonetheless.
Late this afternoon, hubby notices that I had picked up the wrong deer tags on Wednesday, so he made another trip to town for the right ones while I finished cooking dinner. It took longer than he thought it would because they were busy (imagine that!), so I went ahead and ate a couple of pieces of cornbread and some rice. Then I was full. Is it just my imagination, or is my gluten free food keeping me full longer?
