Wow! Look at those numbers.
I think it's time to go get some baking supplies and get ready for the upcoming season.
Every year during the week of Thanksgiving, I bake 400-500 homemade chocolate chip cookies. Then me and the kids will eat them all the way thru the new year. We go thru a lot of milk during that period. And now with just one adult child living at home, those cookies last a lot longer.

This was last year's stash.

Rich, Do you freeze the cookies? I've always frozen dough but been afraid to freeze the actual cookies.

I do freeze half of them. It changes the texture just a little when they thaw. But when you dunk them in milk, you can't tell it. :)

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 75 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 50 DAYS


Happy Dozen Days of September! We have made it to another weekend. And we are now 12 days into The Bers. Don't fear though as we have 110 days to go still after today. That sounds like a ton of time in The Bers. Now onto our counts on a MILESTONE SATURDAY! We have 75 days till Thanksgiving and 50 days till November remaining. The "Final Fifty" is here till November! That's a huge milestone. Who thought we would make it to that marker so quickly? But we have. And you can see how round the numbers are this morning. I think this weekend kind of is a big turning point. We have 10 full weeks ahead of us now till Thanksgiving Week arrives. And I love this time of year so much as Autumn is on it's way and the Halloween Season. Have a great Dozen Days of September!​

I love these counts! What a great Saturday for the Countdown! The Final Fifty makes me feel that I have plenty of time to enjoy all of my favorite things but that it will all be here before we know it.

50 days until November 1st!!! Almost as exciting as THE BERS getting here! We were at Costco today and already scoping out turkeys, really thinking of buying one ahead of time..Also need to check with Martins and see if they have started their points program to start towards the turkeys and hams. My MIL had so many points last year, she gave to my wife and between our accounts we were able to get a free turkey AND ham. We ate the turkey on January's Rudolph Day Feast, and had the Ham on February's Rudolph Day!

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 74 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 49 DAYS


Happy September Teens! And Happy NFL Sunday's to Football Fans! I almost held out the excitement this year because I didn't know if we'd actually make it to today. With the way sports has had a hard time like everything else in life this year taking place I wasn't sure we'd ever get to a football Sunday. But we HAVE! And today's counts are the following: 74 days till Thanksgiving & 49 days till November. That's big. And our next milestone? It's in 9 days. And it is the Farewell to Summer Milestone. Wow. Our 3rd and FINAL Season before Autumn will be ending in 9 days. And then it's all about Autumn till basically Christmas. That's pretty amazing. Who's excited for Autumn? Hands? Have a great September Teens!​

Hard to believe we're finally looking at 49 days until November. I love it but at the same time wish that we had more time in the Ber months. September is flying by. I don't know if I'm ready for October yet, but I AM ready for the end of summer!

My sister-in-law from out-of-state came to visit for the first time since the before times and we were comparing traditional Thanksgiving menus at each of our homes and it made Thanksgiving seem closer than a dim light in the headlights . . . . .

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 73 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 48 DAYS


Happy Settling In September! We are really into the middle of the month now almost. And I feel like our little "Preview" of what's to come is about over. We're starting to see things happen now. Football Sunday yesterday for the first time this season. And looking at the weather here this week early Autumn weather arriving ahead of schedule. Well we're always ON schedule with these counts so let's look at them: 73 days till Thanksgiving & 48 days till November. Both counts are looking fine and dandy here in The Bers. Next stop is the farewell to summer/welcome to autumn which happens 1 week from tomorrow (or in 8 days if you want to be numerical). Have a great Settling In September!​

Fall weather came early here too, and by the looks of things, WINTER weather might come even sooner, Saturday night here is supposed to be down in the 30's!!!

We've had frost warnings now for the past week and a half. This week it's suppose to go down to 32F- 28F overnight. Chilly but normal for us. Have a good day everyone!!

All this Thanksgiving talk inspired me to cook one of my turkey breasts last night. It was boneless and skinless, also organic, free range, so it was not large like ones you buy in stores. I was a bit worried it wouldn't be tender so I poured about a cup of bone broth over it and tightly covered it with foil. It came out perfect despite my digital meat thermometer not working. I sliced it after it had rested on the counter for 30 minutes and mixed the bone brother over the slices, then refrigerated it.

Guess what I had for breakfast along with my smoothie today? Turkey!!!
