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”!
Well, I’m sorta back to normal… as normal as can be for the week of a major holiday… and looking forward to visiting all the blogs, facebook pages and pinterest boards that inspire me!
I am very thankful for this FABULOUS supportive community… you will be in my prayers on Thanksgiving for sure!
Do you have favorites blogs that inspire you? Wouldn’t it be so much fun to give them a shout-out in the comments this week… so we all can find and visit them too!

Each Thanksgiving morning the women of the family come down for breakfast in our jammies and have Thanksgiving leftovers while reading Christmas magazines! And we have a sliver of dessert with our coffee.
This is such a fun fun tradition! After all the work of Thanksgiving dinner the day before… we can eat our favorites and chat and enjoy some well deserved “girl time”! No guilt invited… it’s only once a year!
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!!!
