Happy Saturday-before-Thanksgiving!

Seriously, how did we get here?! I feel like we were just talking about Easter, were we not? Sheer insanity. BUT! The holidays are officially here and I could not be more excited. Bring it all on!

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Are you hosting? Making some of the food? Braving Black Friday crowds? I would love to hear about your plans! We are hosting again, deep frying the turkey, and will have all of the traditional sides and desserts. No black Friday shopping for me; we usually spend the days after Thanksgiving putting up our Christmas decorations, and I can’t wait!

If you’re traveling this weekend or next week, please be safe and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!¬†ūü¶É

I’ve never seen anything like these maple frosted walnut bars and I seriously cannot wait to make them.

Loving this brussels sprouts, bacon, and cornbread panzanella salad for a different spin on a Thanksgiving side.

Gingerbread. Marshmallows. (!!)

If you’re hosting a small group for Thanksgiving, this garlic herb butter roasted turkey breast looks phenomenal!

I think our Thanksgiving dessert spread needs some cranberry Jello salad, yummm!
