I totally meant to put this up sooner in case you needed some Thanksgiving ideas but it slipped my mind. Anyway, some friends and I put together this list of every recipe you may need for the holidays. We’ve got ham, side dishes, appetizers, cakes, and tons and tons of cookies.
Tons. Of. Cookies.
Anyway, if you have any favorite holiday recipes that I absolutely need to try, please send them my way!

Tomorrow is December 1.
Are we sure it’s really the last day of November?
Like, sure sure?
Anyway, I’m putting my Christmas tree up today because if I don’t do it now, tomorrow I’ll start the “Well, it’s too late now! Christmas is practically here!” thing and we just won’t have a Christmas tree this year.
Aaaaand it has a gravy packet that you just pour into a pot and simmer until hot and thick.
They turkey turned out perfectly juicy and the cajun spices were a nice change from the usual turkey. (Pssst, they have a regular turkey, too!) My kids came home from school the day I cooked it and said, “Why does it smell so good in here?!”
The Jennie-O website is where you should head if you need any Thanksgiving help. They’ve got several menus, a thawing calculator (you better do that one today!), and tons of recipes for side dishes!
If you happen to have leftover turkey, lemme suggest you make this uhhhh-mazing Cranberry Turkey Salad. There’s this grocery store in my hometown that makes the best chicken salad with grapes and pecans and, like, sometimes I dream about that chicken salad. So I kind of wanted to do that but switched the chicken for turkey and the grapes for dried cranberries.
It’s so good and even better on a croissant.
True story: was so excited to have an excuse to buy croissants and my evil husky ate the 3 remaining croissants while I was at the gym!
