    A Thanksgiving Feast

    “Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” – Dennis Waitley

    Happy Thanksgiving week! Only a few days left until the big feast. Whatever food assignment you’ve received, we’ve gotcha covered. From the turkey to the stuffing to the side-dishes and dessert, we think you’ll love these tasty recipes to create a Thanksgiving feast! (Click on the photos below to go to the recipe!)

    What are your favorite Thanksgiving traditions? We love enjoying a feast together as a family, and then the next day we go and cut down our Christmas tree! We’re secretly very pleased when Thanksgiving falls early in November like this year, because as soon as Thanksgiving is over, it’s officially the Christmas season and the decorations and playing Christmas music are finally acceptable.

    Whatever your Thanksgiving traditions may be, we hope your holiday will be filled with family, gratitude and of course, delicious FOOD!
