After Thanksgiving Thoughts

Here I am, thinking I've done a fairly good job at keeping up with posting all of my pictures, but a fairly poor job of taking many pictures this month.  As it turns out (and as I discovered when I opened my memory card tonight to post recipes and pictures from our Thanksgiving Dinner) I've just done a horrible job at emptying my memory card!  I haven't even posted pictures from Halloween!


This evening, as I sat down to dinner tonight, simultaneously overwhelmed and enraptured with the mountain of scrumptious FOOD

in front of me equaling more food than I usually cook in an entire week, I had a genius idea.  (If I do say so myself.  And I do.)  I decided that it would be fun to make a Thanksgiving dinner stretch a whole week and use that to replace my meal plan.  It would go something like this:

Monday - ham, gravy and mashed potatoes
Tuesday - grilled ham sandwiches with green bean casserole
Wednesday - rolls topped lightly with gravy and sweet potato casserole
Thursday - sweet glazed carrots, and mashed potatoes with diced ham and gravy on top
Friday - leftovers from everything that's still not eaten up

Doesn't that sound fantastic!?

So anywhooo, it seems I have some catching up to do in the picture-posting department.  I think I'll go in backwards order this time, and start with Thanksgiving.

Yummy recipes... coming right up!

P.S.  Don't forget about my Pink Friday sale!  It starts in two little hours!!  Yippee!
