of Our 65 Day Joruney!
Since Thanksgiving is only a week away,
Beth over at A Work in Progress is doing Top Ten Thanksgiving Yumminess! Come on and join the fun….
Ten Must Have Foods for Thanksgiving…..
- Mr. Tom Turkey!
- Cornbread dressing….not stuffing….dressing
- Giblet Gravy (which I make without the giblets)
- My mother’s cranberry relish recipe
- Some kind of sweet potatoes (soufflé is preferred by dd#1, plain old candied and topped with toasted marshmallows is dh’s favorite)
Next five in order of preference ……..
Everyone, Aunt Billie’s cheese ball
Everyone, hot rolls (homemade the best, but will except others)
Nearly everyone, mashed potatoes (garlic cheese mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving!)
Me…..BROCCOLI (can be a casserole but plain, steamed is fine), both dds would rather have green bean casserole and of course the boys would rather have mac & cheese (not happening), honey hunk will be busy with the dressing and sweet potatoes, so he doesn’t count here! BTW – Broccoli can be raw on the relish tray….(I’m really not difficult to please!)
And Fruit Salad…..we use 3 or 4 recipes….depends on our mood!
Well that is probably a whole ‘nuther TEN!
Four Layer Chocolate Pie
Cream Cheese Bars (Also known as Neiman Marcus Bars)
Chocolate Chip Cookies or Blonde Brownies
Cheese Cake….anykind!!! (I’m wanting to try White Chocolate Raspberry….maybe Christmas)
Peanut Butter Pie
Rice Krispie Treats (The boys also make the day before)….
In realty, we will probably have the first four, along with the Rice Krispie Treats. We’ve had two pans of blonde brownies in the last couple of weeks.
Thanksgiving (or parts there of) will last from Thursday through the weekend, feeding approximately 25.
If anyone wants recipes….just let me know! Our Cheese Ball and (one of our) Fruit Salad recipes can be found here!
Thirty Days of Thanks!!!

Thursday ~ The tremendous Bible Study I’m a member of! Those gals ROCK!
Around the House
Yesterday, I made two batches of Triple Berry Jelly for gifts! Just finished making the second batch when dd#1 called and (just happened) to mention she was out of jelly!!! I think she smelled it cooking….70 miles away! Makes me happy that like their mama’s jelly though!
Still cleaning cabinets and such…seems like the never ending job!!! But I know I’ll be much happier when it’s done!!
Hope you are having a wonderfully blessed day!
Tomorrow is Fearless Friday. If you have a prayer request, let me know. We would love praying for you!
