In the Spirt of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  My husband and I love to spend it at home with our family relaxing and reflecting.  I try to thank God everyday for the things He has blessed me with, but I love this special time with family that we can enjoy each others company and take a break from the hustle and bustle of life, be refreshed, and say Thank You.


In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I will post a few of my favorite recipes leading up to Thursday!  I hope you will try these recipes, adapt them and make them your own!


Here is a link to the turkey we like to make:

It is very flavorful and moist!  I love the apple and onion combination!

In the next few days, I will post recipes for:

  • Sweet Potato Bites (Monday the 25th)
  • Pumpkin Pie (Tuesday the 26th )
  • Cranberry Sauce (Wednesday the 28th)

On Thanksgiving I will post our Thanksgiving Day craft!  Little Miss loves to paint!  We are making hand print turkeys!
