Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!


Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving Day with safe travels, and lots of stuffing, gravy and pumpkin pie. This year we are hosting family and friends at the Ann’s Entitled Life household. An early dinner so my father, and the great-neice (she’s one in a few weeks!) can enjoy. Later would just be too much for them (fresh turkey it is!)

I hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving day!

Over the River and Through the Wood

by Lydia Maria Child (1844)

Over the river, and through the wood,
to Grandfather’s house we go;
the horse knows the way
to carry the sleigh
through the white and drifted snow.

Over the river, and through the wood,
to Grandfather’s house away!
We would not stop
for doll or top,
for ’tis Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river, and through the wood—
oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes
and bites the nose,
as over the ground we go.

Over the river, and through the wood,
with a clear blue winter sky.
The dogs do bark
and the children hark,
as we go jingling by.

Over the river, and through the wood,
to have a first-rate play.
Hear the bells ring,
“Ting a ling ding!”
Hurray for Thanksgiving Day!

Over the river, and through the wood—
no matter for winds that blow;
or if we get
the sleigh upset
into a bank of snow.

Over the river, and through the wood,
to see little John and Ann;
we will kiss them all,
and play snowball
and stay as long as we can.

Over the river, and through the wood,
trot fast my dapple gray!
Spring over the ground
like a hunting-hound!
For ’tis Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river, and through the wood
and straight through the barnyard gate.
We seem to go
extremely slow—
it is so hard to wait!

Over the river, and through the wood—
old Jowler hears our bells;
he shakes his paw
with a loud bow-wow,
and thus the news he tells.

Over the river, and through the wood—
when Grandmother sees us come,
she will say, “O, dear,
the children are here,
bring pie for everyone.”

Over the river, and through the wood—
now Grandmother’s cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun!
Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

Jambalaya made with the Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™

(ad) Jambalaya made with the Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™. #NinjaDeliciousDoneEasy #NinjaPartner Come read about the wonderful Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™! Great cooking functions, easy to follow recipes, and the chance to win one of 20 being offered through their giveaway (now through 12/31/17).


This post was created in partnership with Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™. I received complimentary products and compensation to facilitate my review, but all opinions within are my own.

The Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™ is four appliances built into one: a slow cooker; a stove top for searing and sautéing; a steamer; and an oven for baking. A true multi cooker.

(ad) Jambalaya made with the Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™. #NinjaDeliciousDoneEasy #NinjaPartner Come read about the wonderful Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™! Great cooking functions, easy to follow recipes, and the chance to win one of 20 being offered (now through 12/31/17).


The Auto-iQ™ Technology features more than 80 pre-programmed recipes which you can select from the cookbook (included). You simply gather the recipe ingredients, select the recipe number, and violia! Dinner! Compared to a traditional slow cooker which only heats from the side, Ninja’s Triple Fusion Heat® brings bottom, side, and steam heat together for easy one-pot meals. The food is hot! and cooked very quickly. If you like slow cooker recipes and more, you will love the recipes available in the Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™ cookbook!

The 6-quart nonstick pot is dishwasher-safe, there is a glass lid with handle, steaming/roasting rack, and 100+ recipe cookbook with over 80 Auto-iQ recipes. The food stays warm for up to 12 hours with the auto Stay-Warm and programmable digital timer.

Ok, so what can the do? Well, lots of stuff:

Besides the programmed meals (which saves time, and dinner-thought-headaches), there are Manual Functions:

• Sear – an innovative heating element turns your Cooking System into a skillet so you can sear meats and sauté vegetables in one pot.
• ACCUTEMP Slow Cook – Worry-free ACCUTEMP temperature control operates behind the scenes to ensure meals aren’t overcooked or underdone.
• Bake With a controlled temperature range from 250°–425° you can dry bake hearty roasts or steam bake breads, cakes, and more.
• Steam veggies for that delightful “snap” or steam light proteins like seafood to play up their naturally subtle flavors.

I wanted Hubby to use this for the blog post because of all the neat features. This is so up his alley. Unfortunately, he was very busy last week, so it was up to me. He had picked out a Jambalaya recipe from the book, and I decided to sorta follow it. I changed nothing about the cooking, but I did swap out some ingredients: smoked sausage for andouille (which is a bit spicey for me), orange and red peppers for green.

I then followed the step-by-step instructions in the included cookbook:

• Cut up ingredients.

• Sautéed the chicken, vegetables, and sausage together – which I was leery about since it was included with the peppers, onions, and sausage and not cooked alone – unnecessarily as the chicken was juicy, moist, and well cooked.

• Came back to really HOT (as in temperature), well cooked, well seasoned Jambalaya. The rice cooking was amazing – this recipe cooked for 20 minutes, and the rice was absolutely perfect. My rice cooker takes longer than 20 minutes!
