Menu Plan Monday

This week will be fairly short as we will be going out of town by the end of the week. To make it easy I'm sticking to our usual rotation of recipes.




Have you started your Christmas baking? I made these incredible brownies over the weekend.

Thanksgiving Recap

Thanksgiving has come and gone and I have not had a chance to share how it all went! I am very happy to report that there were no incidents, no melt-downs, and no mishaps. Every single dish came out perfectly! The desserts were made the night before. The sweet potatoes were made the morning of and hung out in the fridge until it was their turn to go into the oven. I had the turkey in later in the afternoon and basted it during it's final hour. The stuffing and carrots were made about an hour before we ate. Everything was delish- especially those sweet potatoes!! Oh, and the cranberry bars were AMAZING, I think I might make them again for Christmas because I am already craving them! All the recipes I used can be found here.

Here are some pictures of the day.

Hope your Thanksgiving went just as well! Now on to planning for Christmas!
