I hope all of you had a great holidays in case you celebrated. We don't really celebrate it, but since we live in the U.S. we get kind of sucked in. I don't mind Thanksgiving because I really like the purpose of the holiday- eating- no I am just kidding. I think it is important to stop at least once a year, look back and give thanks. In Slovakia, we kind of do this on the New Years Eve (Silvester).
We all get a turkey at work from my two bosses. Last year I asked for two cornish hens instead. We are not too crazy about turkey at my house, so I felt like it would be a waste. In the past, I gave our turkey to the friends. I got my two cornish hens this year as well. The two cornish hens are perfect for us. Years ago, I found a simple and very tasteful recipe somewhere online (sorry don't have a link, it was seriously about 5-6 years ago). The whole recipe is very simple. It is cornish hen with sage and lemon. You melt the butter with dried sage and spread it with your hands all over the hen, also in between skin and meat. You stuffed cornish hen with more dried sage (you can also use fresh sage) and lemon. Bake and that's it!
For the side I used stuffing recipe from years ago too, but very similar to this except the brandy. It was just two of us since I was sick like a dog, but we had a nice day.
I had a lot of crafting plans for this prolonged weekend, but this time it was never ending flu that got in my way. I did some sewing anyway, but not even close to what I had planned.
I decided that since it is only about two weeks until I go home, I really need to focus on everything else that needs to get done. For some unexplained reason I am extremally stressed out about the whole thing. I need to put myself together somehow. Sigh.....
Also, I just recently joined a number 3 group of Sew Craft Blog. I like the idea of meeting new blogers. You can find links to the blogs in my group on the sidebar.
P.S.: On the pictures:
