Are you ready for the holiday? Are you hosting this year?
Do you host every year? If not, do you take a dish to share?
What are some of your traditions?
I've been hosting Thanksgiving for many years and I love it!
It's a chance to make some tried and true traditional recipes
and some brand new ones.
My planning starts about now. I love to sit with recipe books, yes-books! And,
I've also put together a "Thanksgiving" Pinterest board with a collection of ideas.

I know, I'm starting with dessert! Dessert is my favorite thing to make.
So, I'll go through all the dessert recipes first.
I know I'll be baking this Pumpkin Cheesecake (click for recipe post) from Southern Living again,
I might make a Chocolate-Cinnamon Pie, found on Pinterest and maybe fruit kabobs.
Then I make my appetizer menu-
so far I'm planning a cheese and fruit tray,
veggies and dip, roasted peppers, mushrooms and greek olives.
Of course, I'm making a turkey with stuffing, mashed and sweet potatoes,
gravy, corn, homemade cranberry sauce, dinner rolls. Those are the traditional dishes.
Now I need to pick a few new ideas.
Oh, I like to have a special drink-last year I served Prosecco,
along with a variety of wine for dinner. Something for everyone.
So that's where I'm at with my Thanksgiving planning.
I'd love to hear what you're planning for the holiday!
Are you ready?
