We have had some brutally cold snowy weather already here in NE Ohio. I had my husband bring in a cooler from garage to use for the extra storage I needed for holiday leftovers, but I realized I didn't have enough ice for the cooler. Not to worry, there's enough ice hanging off of the gutters for a fresh batch every day, as much as needed. Problem solved!

If you make dressing for Thanksgiving, now is the time to start saving your good bread. Any pieces of leftover french bread, biscuit or cornbread, rolls, no matter how small, just put in a big zip lock bag.
This time of year I start letting the items in my freezer dwindle, and take time to clean it out so there will be plenty of room for holiday foods. I try to buy in bulk, so when I cook I fill my oven or can use large pots.
