I love Thanksgiving with all the wonderful food and fellowship. We have some really great features today that are very special from our last weeks party, be sure and check them out they have awesome ideas and recipes. I am looking forward to see all of you today and letting you know how special it is to have you gather around this table every Thursday! You are a very special part of my week and through all these almost seven years you have grown very dear to my heart and I am grateful for each one of you!

Crunchy Orange Fluff Salad

My husband loves Mandarin Oranges and we love a Fluff Salad, it is a natural combination for our family. This recipe is a little different from the usual Fluff Salad, it is actually crunchy and yet still has all those ingredients of a comforting salad that we all enjoy. This salad is a great side dish for any occasion and some folks (that includes me) even like it for dessert.

Whats For Dinner Next Week 11-19-17

Our cottage is all a buzz with thanksgiving company starting to arrive today, we are so excited! In making our meal plan this week, I will be making some of our house guest favorites that they have requested, plus a great Thanksgiving Buffet! It is at times like this that I am so happy to have my meals planned out, the shopping all done and as much prep work done as possible. This allows me to be able to spend more quality time with our guest.

Pear Crisp With Walnut Crumble

Pears are one of our favorite fruits and we love to use them in as many recipes as we can while they are in season. This recipe is a classic crisp with a fabulous walnut crumble on top. The walnuts in the crumble and the pears are a perfect paring making this crisp one that will have your family and friends coming back for seconds. Here at the cottage we serve it with a nice dip of ice cream on top, but it is great just served warm with no garnish.

Roasted Turkey

We love turkey here at the cottage, and there are so many good recipes for turkey. We have had baked turkey, fried turkey, and smoked turkey, but our favorite is a very simple Roasted Turkey. I have been roasting turkey's for family dinners, church dinners, and other events for well over, ( to many years to mention). Our turkeys are always beautiful and very moist with the distinct flavor of the turkey.
When the turkey comes to the table the true celebration can begin, and always invites a gratitude of fellowship that comes with sharing a meal with loved ones.

Whats For Dinner Next Week 11-12-17

It is officially cold outside, summer has definitely left us. We are almost finished with our home projects so I will have full use of my kitchen back very soon. It is good to come to this time of the year when I just sit with my cup of tea and enjoy making my meal plans for the next week. Max just sits right by me and I don't think he really cares what we have to eat next week, as long as he has a little nibble from time to time. A blogger friend ask me, how do you plan anything but Turkey and Dressing for November, I laughed and said well we have to eat between now and thanksgiving day.
