Cranberry Sauce and Thanksgiving musings

Simple and Amazing Cranberry Sauce Recipe

This whole week is going to be dedicated to Thanksgiving. I have a very tender spot for this particular holiday. My love of Thanksgiving has nothing to do with any spectacular life changing event.

This year is my very first year to host Thanksgiving. In ten years of marriage I've never done this and I'm semi nervous but a whole lot of excited! I have my whole menu planned and carefully tucked in my junk drawer...I'm awesome like that. If everything goes as planned our dinner will look something like this: 

Wish me luck and stay tuned for more tasty recipes from my junk drawer menu!
