On to Today’s Topic: Thanksgiving Prep
Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday. You’re surrounded by your family and friends building memories and reminiscing on times from your past. There is amazing food, but most importantly you have the opportunity to reflect and be grateful for the things this year has bought you. Even if they weren’t all that great at least you can be grateful that you have gotten through the year!
Josh and I had planned on going home for the holidays. But, due to some unforeseen circumstances have decided to just spend Thanksgiving with our babies and start our own traditions.
So of course the organizer in me wanted to make sure that if we are going to start new traditions we have to do it right. Hence this Thanksgiving Prep List.
If I happen to miss anything please feel free to comment below. Also, comment some things you like to enjoy with your families. Maybe I can incorporate them into our new tradition.
Ok on to the list.
Thanksgiving would just be another day if we didn’t completely forget about calorie counting and healthy eating. Both of our families are from the south and they are PHENOMONAL cooks. So I decided we should pay tribute to the wonderful women in our lives and incorporate some of their most famous recipes.
Our Meal will consist of:
Roasted chicken (No more dry bird)
Ham (Josh’s request)
Mac N Cheese
Corn Bread Stuffing (I’ll using my grandmother’s recipe)
Sweet potatoe soufflé
Rolls and butter
Yellow Cake with chocolate buttercream frosting
The women in our family aren’t just beautiful and amazing cooks. But, they also have a keen eye for decorating.
So in tribute to them I will be hittinup some of our local shops for a few festive decorations. I’ll be doing place settings for the kids and adults. A beautiful centerpiece complete with candles. We must not forget using some of those beautiful DIY fall scents for the home. (Not to be our done bythe delicious aroma of our Thanksgiving feast!)
An American Thanksgiving consists of Family, friends, food, and FOOTBALL.
So, my family will be watching the games after the Macy’s day parade.
Game Line Up consists of:
Bears VS Lions (Our family happens to be Bear fans)
Redskins VS Cowboys (Our home team)
Falcons VS Saints
Becuase we usually have laughs from family stories I didn’t think we would let the evening go out without some laughter. So we will be tuning into some family comedies to end the night in preparation for the Black Friday Rush.
I hope you guys enjoy making your Prep List in time for the holidays.
Prayers for love, laughter, and new memories to cherish.
