Menu Plan Monday ~ Thanksgiving Edition Oct 10/11

Yep that’s right it’s Canadian Thanksgiving today…happy Thanksgiving Canadians!!  Hope you had a terrific long weekend!  We celebrated over at friends with a big turkey dinner on Saturday so I won’t be cooking a turkey myself.  Instead I’m going to do a ham and homemade mac and cheese.  Yum!

Well as you know I went to New York for the first time last week and I can’t wait to tell you all about it sometime this week.  It was absolutely amazing!  Can you guess what my highlight might have been from this picture?  Whee!!!!

Okay so last week’s winner of the $75.00 gift card provided by the menu planning resource, Ziplist, is #77 Denise from Shopper Strategy!!  Congratulations Denise!!

    Great dishes! I’m really having troubles linking up though. Image won’t come, and then it stops altogether. Has the system changed? It used to work without problems.

      Laura says

      Hmm, no I’m still using the same system…and I see all the other links there. That is so strange, so sorry you are having trouble 🙁

      • Meyser says

        I figured out! It’s with those new dynamic views in blogger. I love it, but apparently, it’s not really compatible with everything. Next time, I’ll put my blog for a moment in the old template, link up, and then change again That way it does work. Thanks for thinking along!
