Things To Do On Thanksgiving Vacation

Watch the chickens....
Make a hut using bamboo, palm and ginger. Push tall bamboo sticks into the ground in a 3/4ths a circle. Gather at the top and secure with a large cable tie. Weave smaller bamboo stalks in and out to create the wall. Fill in with ginger leaves. Add palm fronds to the top and a piece of fabric "deer skin" for a door and you're a pretend Native American....(You could probably use willow and other leaves for those areas that do not have bamboo and ginger.)! There's a black panther checking out the wicki-up!
...or you could draw faces on miscellaneous objects...Seleste explained that this yarn was so sad because it had to wear a dunce hat....
....This dried cucuzza squash looks pretty happy all cozy by the fire...
...or you could make "Steen's Molasses Cake" and eat it right out of the pan with a very cold glass of milk using.....
...the recipe right off of the jar!
Steen's Molasses Cake
1 cup dark molasses
2 tbsp sugar
2tsp vanilla
1/3 cup salad oil
1 1/2 cup flour sifted
1 egg
1tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup milk
Combine all dry ingredients except sugar. Beat egg and sugar until creamy. Add dark molasses, mix well, add oil, mix. Add dry ingredients, beat 100 strokes or 3 min with mixer at moderate speed, add milk and vanilla, mix. Do not over beat. Pour in pan. Cook at 375 degrees until done.
Now don't waste that very last day!
