Thanksgiving Challot

For year’s my mother-in-law has made challot in the shape of Turkeys. They are individual roles that are shaped like a turkey and have raisins for eyes. They are absolutely adorable.

In the last year I have seen a lot of Challot designs. Kveller posted today a picture of a Turkey Challah that I posted to my pinterest page last year. I thought it would be a great idea to post some Challot ideas.

DVDs and Blu-Ray on Sale for $3.99 or less (Blazing Saddles, Lorax, Horton Hears a Who, etc.)

There are some great prices on DVDs and Blu-Rays this week. Here are just some of the ones I could quickly find. I haven’t seen many of these movies, but for $3.99, it’s cheaper than going out to the movie theater and almost worth purchasing them.

Blazing Saddles [Blu-ray] for $3.99

The Expendables for $3.99

Library Happenings

If you are looking for cheap or free things to do the local libraries are a great place to start. If you stay home with your kids, there is always yoga or story times happening. Many of the libraries also have authors visit.

The Jericho Library has a PJ storytime on Thursday, October 4 at 7pm.

In two weeks, the Plainview-Old Bethpage library is having a craft & gift fair. On October 7 from 10am-6pm. The Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce and the POB Library co-sponsor this family event. Great shopping, live entertainment, inflatable kids rides and food. Free face-painting for all with a donation of non-perishable food or personal care items for LI Cares. Looks like it will be lots of fun.
