Good morning

Hope everyone gets their list finished

My first chore today is to schedule a CT scan of my sinuses. I may need to have sinus surgery to remove a blockage, since 2 rounds of anti-biotics have not cleared up whatever is going on

I have doctors orders to take it easy...so maybe some scrapping today if my headache isn't too bad

Have a great day all

Cheryl, I had to have sinus surgery a few years ago (they put an extra 'drainage' hole in so I'm much better!). It wasn't that bad (not fun, no, but not that bad). Hope they figure it out for you.

Thanksgiving App.. a little labor intense but SOOOO Yum

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts

1 (5 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained (estimated can size)
1 lb lean bacon, cut in half (for easier wrapping)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
1/8 cup soy sauce
Directions:

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2 If desired, cut larger water chestnuts in half for easier eating and more pieces.
3 Soak water chestnuts in soy sauce for 15 minutes, stirring a few times to make sure they are fully coated.
4 Remove water chestnuts from soy sauce.
5 Wrap 1/2 strip of bacon around each; secure with toothpicks.
6 Reserve soy sauce.
7 Place toothpick side "up" in a 9" x 13" glass baking dish.
8 Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 30 minutes or until crispy.
9 Remove from oven; drain bacon fat.
10 Meanwhile, mix reserved soy sauce, ketchup and brown sugar in a bowl.
11 Pour the mixture over the chestnuts to coat them evenly.
12 Bake an additional 20 to 30 minutes (again checking for crispness of bacon).
13 Serve hot, with or without seafood sauce.

Oh sure it would.. you could even pop it back into the oven for 15 or so mins to loosen it back up (the sauce might get a little sticky is all)
