4 Things.

Wishing a very happy Thanksgiving week to you!  If you're traveling, I hope you reach your final destination as planned and with peace.  Where ever you are, be there with a thankful heart.

Here's an alternative holiday dessert, low fat too!  Skinny Cranberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars.
This would make an easy, simple and modern hostess gift for a thanksgiving guest or would look really pretty on the buffet table, for a thanksgiving host.
If you're acting as a guest this week, perhaps you might like to offer to make breakfast!  Maybe this Hash Brown Quiche?
And finally, the Essential Thanksgiving.  Sometimes you can't mess with tradition.

4 Things

Are you enjoying the fall weather where you are?  Earlier last week, it was unbearably cold here in Minneapolis, but by Thursday, regular fall weather resumed, thank goodness.  Thanksgiving is almost here!  My favorite holiday.  I can't wait to visit my family, very soon!
And with that, here are some seasonal posts from around the web:
Pomegranates are in season and are popping up in the produce department. A friend of mine was eating this at lunch last week and I had to have the recipe!  Yum.
Apple season is a big deal here in the upper Midwest.  And locally picked apples really are so much better than the one bought in the grocery store.  I sort of overbought at the last farmer's market of the season, last weekend.  In order to use a few up, and make dinner, I plan on making this recipe for Pork Chops with Apple Chutney.
The 10 Laws of Thanksgiving Dinner.
Maybe you're not making thanksgiving dinner and you're a guest.  Wouldn't this Pumpculent make a lovely hostess gift?

It is just me, or does November 1st feel like the beginning of the holiday season?  I'm excited about the holidays.  There have been lots of changes (umm...big move to a new city) and I'm looking forward to some traditions.  And to see my family!
I haven't made any jewelry lately. 
-I love this new Friendship Bracelet idea.
-Or how about this pretty glass bracelet?
Thanksgiving is right around the corner!  I might convince my family to try this Roasted Cranberry Sauce, this year.
If you're planning on any handmade gifts this year, it's time to get started!   I like this simple, but pretty pot holder.  And it uses up fabric scraps!
