Hey hey! Can you believe Turkey Day is a week away? I feel like Halloween was just last week! Wait a sec, if you live in New Jersey, then Halloween may have been celebrated last week. Time is really flying by. Good ole Saint Nicholas will here before we all know it (or have time to shop and decorate!). I am thinking about decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving. I usually wait a week or two after, but I am thinking about changing it this year – do any of you decorate early?
With the big day fast approaching, many shopping trips to the grocery store have already occurred and at least one more is needed for next week to pick up my fresh grocery items needed for my recipes.
We aren’t hosting Thanksgiving this year, but we do plan on making our own Thanksgiving meal Friday for extra leftovers and to refuel from Black Friday shopping. Here is our traditional Thanksgiving menu (all from scratch):
- Turkey, oven roasted
- Dressing/Stuffing, cooked outside of the bird
- Sweet potato casserole with marshmallows
- Mashed potatoes
- Cranberry sauce
- Green bean casserole
- Dinner rolls
- Pumpkin pie
My favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner are the sides, we could definitely skip the turkey, but then John couldn’t make Turkey BLT sandwiches!
Here are some pics of Thanksgivings past for your enjoyment.

What are your Thanksgiving traditions?? Are you hosting it this year or are you going to a friend or relative’s house?
