Thanksgiving 2011

The time is here to celebrate FOOD, oops I mean Thanksgiving.  But really people…  what would Thanksgiving be without gathering around a table with your loved ones and celebrating the bounty of our blessings?  You know I love all things food.  And a day that is centered around food =  Happy Katy!  My mom is hosting Thanksgiving this year and we’ve been discussing the menu for a couple weeks.  She’s in love with Pinterest as much as I am, so we’ve been pinning all kinds of recipes via Pinterest.  So…  Let’s get to the goodness – the MENU!

Appetizer: Jamie Cook’s It up – Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip

Super yummy  - huh?!?!?!  What are your must have items on the table?  I love this cranberry sauce – I’ve made it the past three years and it’s a keeper!  The leftovers the next day on my turkey sandwich will make me happy all over again!

If you have all that delicious foods to partake in – you’ve got to have a beautiful table as well.  Here’s some examples from Thanksgiving past…
