Stuffing that will be on our table before it goes in the oven

Thanksgiving is one day away and I am cooking up a storm. If you’ve caught some of my action on Instagram or Facebook you’ve seen it all . So much planning, shopping and cooking. It’s crazy. Not to mention I still have to polish my silver, make at least 4 more dishes and set the table, get my flowers, etc. All the prep and craziness is part of it. I must have been in the supermarket everyday this week and just when I think I’m finished there is one more thing I need. I know I go a little crazy but I want everyone to have what they are looking forward to.

If you’re hosting and cooking and prepping then take a deep breath and try to enjoy it all! Whatever happens is going to happen and let’s all just try to relax and enjoy our family and friends. It’s our first Thanksgiving without my Dad and that’s going to be tough on all of us. Be happy for those faces around your table and if you screwed up a recipe or forgot something it’s really no biggie. Eat up because Thanksgiving we don’t count calories and your host knocked herself out to make all that food!!! It’s not a time to diet for sure .

Remember Gratitude not Attitude. Grace not Hate.
