How was the weekend? I stuck to my plan of dog park and not leaving the house again except to get a Lunchable yesterday because for whatever reason, I couldn’t stop thinking about stacking crackers, turkey, and processed cheese on top of each other.
Judge me if you must.
I did make marshmallows, though. Also had a full-on meltdown in front of my neighbors when I realized my kid had used all the cocoa powder and all I wanted was chocolate marshmallows. I’m a fun friend to have.
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!

Heeeey guys, happy Monday! Fresh week! I feel like we all need a fresh start, huh?
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK?! I cannot. How did this happen?
I haven’t planned a thing! I have a turkey in my freezer though so I know that’s happening, at least. And I’ll make the dressing that my family always makes because that’s my favorite. And I’m sure there will be pie. There’s always pie.
Another thing I also always make is broccoli salad. But first, that bowl!
