And the Mystery Food is:_________

November 22, 2016

Well, I soaked it and soaked it. And after a lot of scraping, I uncovered what is definitely an apricot pit. the-pitSo, since several of you answered correctly, I have to send the five dollars to the first person who guessed correctly, Nicol Zanzarella.

So Nicol, I will either mail it to you, or hand it to you next time we meet for coffee because a promise is a promise. Who knew a person could have so much fun with food gone bad?

For the next few days I will be in a haze of food preparation and cleaning because I am hosting Thanksgiving and the next day Brandon and family are coming – Woo Hoo! So my normal Friday blog probably won’t appear unless aliens take over my site.

I wish each of you a very Happy Thanksgiving, warm moments with family and friends and maybe a pumpkin pie contest to make things interesting. I am very thankful for each of you who take the time to read my blogs and always encourage me. Your comments always make my day and I feel blessed to have you.

Oh and get in on the Black Friday discounts at my Zazzle store and pick up gifts you definitely won’t find anywhere else!  Use the following discount code for serious discounts!

    Fran! Let’s just have a cup of coffee together and call it even! Besides, YOU were actually the first person to guess it. Thank you for sharing beautiful stories and interesting perspectives with us all. Love to you and yours.
