Oh, goodness! I’ve been a little MIA the last couple of weeks. I really have been missing my blogging friends and my wonderful dear readers! Sometimes life just “takes on a life of it’s own”!

I am very thankful for this FABULOUS supportive community… you will be in my prayers on Thanksgiving for sure!

Let’s get right to the yummy features this week… here are some last minute Thanksgiving recipes that just might help you round out your own Turkey Day menu…

My very favorite part of Thanksgiving is he stuffing. Here is a yummy sounding MOM’S STUFFING from LIFE IN MY EMPTY NEST. It sounds similar to mine too!

Nancy at THE HEADMISTRESS is giving a special Thanksgiving take home after Thanksgiving dinner… ROSEMARY SALT. What a thoughtful gesture, Nancy!!!

Mary from AT HOME ON THE BAY is thinking like Nancy too! Look at these adorable ACORN SHORTBREAD FAVORS. I love this sweet gesture… and these look scrumptious!

Oh my goodness… doesn’t this  LAYERED SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE make your mouth water!!!! This is one of two amazing side dishes that Kelly from SEMI HOMEMADE MOM made!

Lori, your MINI PUMPKIN CHEESECAKES are gorgeous. What a hit they would be with my family!!! Run on over to A STORY TO TELL to get this sweet recipe!

Of course, we need pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. MINI PUMPKIN PIES are so much cuter than a big pie… and you could probably have two!!!
Mary at HOME IS WHERE THE BOAT IS always whipping us the most delightful things!

Here’s hoping everyone has a Thanksgiving full of fun, family and lots and lots of fabulous food!!!

    Your menu for Thanksgiving sounds alot like ours! I love the stuffing best too! And we have to have cranberries from the can; I made it one year and everyone said they wanted the canned:):) I make the same sweet potato casserole, in fact made it for last night. (I just posted about it). I want to wish you and ALL of your beautiful family a Happy, FUN, blessed Thanksgiving. I wish I was there for Friday morning!!!!!!!!!!! Sounds like a FUN time! I will be getting ready for MORE GUESTS coming on Friday! Lots of live, Pinky

    Yvonne–Thank YOU for including my mini-pumpkin cheesecakes today in your highlights. I feel like I “have arrived”, if I was featured by you. My favorite blog is yours. I am just waiting on you to get your own book/show/or both! I’ve included our Turkey Treats (cookies) for this weeks addition. We’ve been making them for years! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. Thanks again. Lori Lucas

    Your family is in for another week of great eating. It all sounds delicious. My girls and I have been known to breakfast on pie and cold dressing, so your comment rang a positive response from me. I hope you have a wonderful holiday, Yvonne. Hugs and blessings…Mary
