Thanksgiving This & That

Well, I’m checking in just a little late to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! I hope it was a great day filled with delicious food for everyone.

We were at home this year with just my father-in-law joining us. But I still made a huge dinner just so we could enjoy all the leftovers for the next couple days. I’m planning on stocking the freezer with some of the leftovers too. Aside from some burnt giblet stock that I planned to use in our gravy, the day went smoothly.

The kids are passed out in their beds from the tryptophan-induced sleepiness. Full bellies makes for some good sleeping! My husband and I are getting ready to sit down and go through all the Black Friday ads now while we enjoy some homemade pumpkin spice lattes and pie.

I wanted to tell you about a few exciting things first though.

I just put together a great gift subscription sale for Stolen Moments Menu Planning with the plans at the lowest prices I’ve ever offered them. Now would be a great time to try the service out for yourself, or cross a few gifts off your Christmas shopping list. You can find all the details here.

And secondly, I wanted to let you know about the Bloggy Progressive Dinner that begins on Monday. I participated in this last year and it was a ton of fun!
