Thanksgiving 2011

Happy Thanksgiving friends! I hope everyone has a truly AMAZING Thanksgiving and everyone has tons to be thankful for :)

Today I am cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my in-laws.. Aaahh! I can’t believe I’m brave enough to take on the task. However, I’ve eliminated dessert thanks to a local bakery’s fabulous pumpkin cheesecake, and I’ve eliminated an appetizer thanks to Panera…yes you read it right. We stopped by Panera last night to get some soup and little biscuits that are going to serve as our appetizer. If there’s anything I’ve learned about preparing these big meals for people, it’s not to take on too much. So this year I’m taking my own advice!

Also on the menu…chicken cordon bleu, a warm spinach and bacon salad, and potatoes au gratin. If you can’t tell, we’re not into traditional Thanksgiving fare :)
What we are into is good quality time with family, so that we will be sure to have plenty of.

And because I just love making lists and I think it’s good to share, I’m also thankful for…
