Thanksgiving is THIS week

I can't believe that Thanksgiving is this week already.


I'm sure everyone will be looking up recipes online or going through the family recipe file that's been handed down. I'm blessed; my husband does the turkey and I do the sides.

Here are some sites for recipes
All Recipes
Food Network
Butterball

One of my favorites is Green bean casserole, but I use cut green beans sometimes

Green Bean Casserole

Here's the recipe, but they didn't mention adding black pepper.

This year I'm thankful for:
- my husband, and 3 cats (our family)

- my friends including my online team friends
- G-d, on whom I rely

- having a full time job and a growing jewelry business
- all of you, dear blog readers

What are you thankful for?
