Thanksgiving Week

While many are spending this week preparing for Thanksgiving Dinner, I am not.  Since I cook for only three, I don't spend a lot of time preparing ahead because I really don't want to be eating Thanksgiving food for the next week and a half.  I usually cook only a few of our favorite dishes along with a turkey breast and one dessert. Curious in what I'll be cooking?

Give Thanks!
  • Turkey Breast

  • Cornbread Dressing and Gravy

  • Green Bean Casserole

  • Sweet Potato Casserole (this really could be considered a dessert, but...)

  • Deviled Eggs

  • Triple Chocolate Dessert

I'll be sharing my recipes for the side dishes and the dessert in the next coming weeks. Hunting on Thanksgiving morning is a tradition that my husband has had since he was a little boy. He and Jamie will be hunting together again this year.  Later on in the afternoon, we will be going to the national forest to cut down our Christmas tree. I've been counting down the days for this since last year. With the loss of a job and a cross country move last year, we had a skimpy Christmas and I did not put up a tree. So this year, I am planning a festive Christmas season.

Jamie and I are also enjoying a break from school work this week.  We have been busy non-stop since we returned from our trip to Georgia. I was not really planning on a whole week for a break, but staying busy for fifty school days straight deserves a little break time. Of course, with a break from doing school work, doesn't mean I am taking a break. I have been in the planning mode for the next several months. I just hope my printer ink will hold out until I'm finished.

Sharing a verse we finished memorizing last week:

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
