Happy Saturday-after-Thanksgiving!

Is your belly still stuffed from dinner on Thursday? Did you shop ’til you dropped yesterday? Are you decorating this weekend?

Our power came back on last Saturday morning, and we had a wonderful Thanksgiving here with lots of family. We spent yesterday getting our tree up and wreaths hung outside; today we’ll get the ornaments on the tree and the rest of the decorations up. My favorite time of the year!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!

Green Bean Casserole From Scratch – A remake of the classic Thanksgiving side dish made with fresh green beans, a homemade cream of mushroom soup, and a topping made with fresh bread and butter, along with some canned French’s fried onions because, let’s be honest, they’re delicious.
