Are you ready to eat all the things? I am!
Are you cooking this year or do you just get to show up and eat? I have a feeling I’ll be doing some cooking which is fine with me. Looks like we’ll be heading up to Seattle, and Mom might not be up to cooking on her own so I’m sure it will be a joint effort.
Thanks to everyone who sent prayers, healing thoughts, and good vibes! She is doing very well after surgery and was actually released less than 48 hours afterwards which was much sooner than expected. You can look forward to a post about Diverticulitis soon! Excited?
If you’re cooking this week and need some inspiration for Thanksgiving recipes, here are some dishes I have been drooling over from some of my favorite Bloggers:

Pinch of Yum – Super Easy Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Crumble

And I guest-posted my Cranberry Salsa on Simple Moments Stick last year:
What’s your favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal? I don’t think I could pick one thing, I love it all, especially the leftovers!!! One year I cooked a full blown meal just for the two of us and we were eating leftovers for a week.
It was perfect.
Mr. Won’t Run has actually requested that I make Thanksgiving dinner once a month. He almost wrote it into the vows. Thankfully he didn’t, because I have failed miserably.
Oh, if you happen to have a turkey in the freezer right now, you might want to move it to the refrigerator, I’ve read that you need 24 hours of thawing time for every 4 pounds – Butterball actually has a How Long to Thaw Calculator! Just enter the number of pounds and it’ll tell you how long you need for refrigerator or cold water thawing methods. FYI, cold water thawing takes WAY less time. You’re welcome.
So tell me, are you cooking this year? What are you making?
If you’re not cooking, what are you most looking forward to eating?
