It’s the elephant in the room and I’ve put off discussing it but the time has definitely come to start talking turkey. Thanksgiving is upon us, yes we have plenty of time to get it together but menus need to be planned so we don’t get caught unprepared. My menu is almost always the same because everyone has their favorite dish that they look forward to eating every year.  Last year I skipped mashed potatoes in favor of something else and the first thing one of my nephews said was “where are the mashed potatoes?” that was his favorite thing. So I try to please all but need to add a few new items every year. Haven’t really decided on all the items but will give you a list of some of my oldies but goodies so go and look them up on my blog. Just put in the title of recipe and it will and it should pop up. If you haven’t subscribed as of yet , what are you waiting for? Please do, it’s free and it’s fun. If anyone out there has any awesome Thanksgiving recipes that they’d like to share with me just email me at Looking forward to hearing from you all. Have fun and I will be posting like crazy for the next few weeks. Happy Turkey Day and Happy Cooking.
