Tackle it Tuesday -Thanksgiving

I'm excited about this month. I love Thanksgiving. It's such a time of reflection and looking back (which I'm thinking would be a reflection right?) at all the things that you have to be Thankful for. So this weeks tackle is all about Thanksgiving.
First off my menu. I posted my Thanksgiving Menu on my Cooking Blog. Today I will start posting recipes from it to share with you and maybe convince you to try something new.

Next I would like to share some wonderful links that I have found.

Thanksgiving Holiday Planning Book -This is custom made to what you pick to put in it. With a click of a button you have a wonderful little planning EBook to help you through the holiday.

Need to know how to carve a turkey? This video can show you how.

Well I hope these little finds will help you tackle your Thanksgiving with a little more ease.

  3. Thank you! I can't wait to go to all of these sites...although I can't believe that it's time for this again already. Didn't we just have the Fourth of July?

    and me, at the address in closing.

    Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. HA! I tackled Thanksgiving weeks ago when I made a hotel reservation for 5 nights and dinner reservations for the same...

  9. Oh, you put me to shame. I'm such a last-minute kinda gal. I shouldn't have looked at your menu, though, while I'm so hungry. 8-} I loooooooove roast turkey. I could eat it every day. With smashed taters and giblet gravy, of course. Mmmmmm!!!!!

  10. Wow! What a great post...so much useful info!

  11. Yeah! I love Thanksgiving tips! Your holiday menu looks so yummy...makes me hungry for turkey!

  12. I LOVE Thanksgiving. It is, hands-down, my favorite holiday of all. It saddens me, though, that it seems to be an overlooked holiday for many. I actually saw some people in my neighborhood putting up their Christmas decorations on Saturday, November 1st. Me, I don't like to focus on Christmas things until AFTER Thanksgiving.

    Are you hosting a houseful for Thanksgiving dinner? We are longing for Thanksgiving with the in-laws. Maybe one day we'll live in Florida again and be able to do that. Truly, family is a blessing, and when you don't have family close, you really realize how much they mean to you.

    Love in Christ,

  13. man, aren't you little miss organized!!!??? Makes me so jealous. I don't even know if and where our Thanksgiving will be this year. And it is just a few short weeks away!

  14. Excellent tackle, my friend! I love all those Thanksgiving links. And I am going to look at your menu now - but I need a snack first so I won't get too hungry!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
