Turkey



I've got TURKEY on my mind this week - planning the Annual Thanksgiving menu is at the top of the agenda. I've got the usual suspects covered, but I am still trying to come up with some fun menu ideas. Any suggestions?
And, on another note, the girls and I went to Michael's Crafts to get some "turkey" things to make for the kids table  -  and the Manager told us they sold out of Thanksgiving things in August - And I actually thought I was planning ahead - oh well!

I will keep looking!
PS - I am just a bit obsessed with the color combo of purple, yellow and orange right now!
gobble, gobble!

Sold out in August? There's just something WRONG with that! ha. I was in Big Lots the first week of October and they had Christmas music playing. It was a little disturbing. lol...

My grandson's girl friend brought stuffed acorn squash last year and it was a wonderful addition to the meal. I'm sure that if you're interested there's a recipe online. Good luck finding something to make for the kid's table. I haven't seen anything for Thanksgiving table decorating at all this year. You're creative so I've no doubt you'll think of something. Hugs

I think anything sweet would do. I'm always in favor of sweet potato pie, though.

I do like the combo of purple, yellow and orange, it's inviting
