Hello everyone! I’m sure those of you in the US celebrating Thanksgiving this week are busy getting ready for the festivities. We celebrated last month here in Canada. I always try to prepare almost the entire meal in advance so when the big day arrives I can relax and enjoy my guests. My favorite make-ahead Thanksgiving recipes include:
Black Forest Cheesecake (I make ahead and freeze)
The only thing I’ve never tried to make ahead is the turkey but after reading this post of Amy’s, over at The Finer Things in Life, I think I’m definitely going to give it a try one of these fine holidays.
Here are a few other note worthy links this week related to food and Thanksgiving that you might like:

Have a great one! I’m thankful to all of you for coming by week after week to join me here as we bless our families and our budgets with our menu plans.
I’m also thankful for my youngest son with is four years old today (Sunday). I just can’t imagine life without him in it. The birthday supper he asked for was hot dogs and potato chips so that’s what we had :)
