Pinterest in November- Plan, plan, plan

I would LOVE for you to share and link us with some of the crafts that you made last week.  I'll see what I can do about posting some of mine...if I get around to it! 

This next week, plan your Thanksgiving.  Some of you are lucky enough to have your moms still make your feast (thanks mom!), while others of you are on your own. 
Either way, here are some great ideas to help you with your Thanksgiving get-togethers
1.) FOOD
Dessert:  Why NOT start with dessert, right? 
Women’s Day had some great ideas.  Who wouldn’t want to eat Reese’s PB with choc. cookies?  These look very good..and the kids would LOVE to help you make them.
Pilgrim Hat Cookies
Pies.  Who doesn’t love a good pie recipe?  I made an apple pie a few weeks ago and it was really good…not as good as a professional, but since it was my first…ever, I was pretty excited!  Here is a link to pinterest: pie, but I’ll include some that look yumm-o to me!

And who says you can’t have a dessert buffet?

Thank you hostessblog for the awesome pic and idea.

MAIN MEAL:  this one is a bit harder to do.  There is SUCH a HUGE range, so I’ll just do the basics.
Turkey.  Who better to learn from than Martha herself

Here is another spot to find turkey 101

Stuffinnnnngggg.  I really like stuffiing.  I'm lucky enough to have a mom who prepares a dry stuffing and a wet stuffing.  Both are really good, but I prefer mine a bit drier, with gravy on top.

Since I don't have the recipe of hers...this will have to do:

Sweet potatoes:
These are Butter-Pecan Sweet Potatoes via Martha

Green Bean:
Cranberry Sauce:  Luke LOVES my mom's homemade cranberry sauce, but since I don't have the recipe...Martha (again) will have to do!

ROLLS:  My mom make's THE BEST rolls EVER.  But here is another good recipe ;)
Lion House rolls..yum!

Until next week.
