I like to spend Thanksgiving Day with my family and watching the AKC dog show, so I try to do all my baking and cooking the day before, which happens to be today. But before I start, I did some "window" shopping for all of you that don't like to bake, and I found some really neat treats to share.
First up, cookies. My kids like cookies more then cakes because you can eat while you walk and play, so this bright colored turkey sugar cookie is a great idea. They are all natural (no preservatives) and hand decorated, and at only $28.00 a dozen, I think it's a good deal. Check out the other treats at this shop, Surfsupcakes. Now I'm going to share what else I found at this shop that has nothing to do with Thanksgiving, but I just love it!
The next easiest treat to eat (after cookies) are cupcakes. And these are so cute, almost too cute to eat. Now at this shop, Kati's Kupcakes, you supply the cupcakes, she supplies the toppers. So when people ooh and aah over your dessert table, you can still take some credit for yourself, lol. These adorable Thanksgiving toppers are created with fondant, which I lovingly call fondon't (because I can't). And we all know that fondant is really just edible play dough. hahaha.
Now I don't know if your husband is like mine, but when it comes to turkey, the bigger, the better. It doesn't matter how many people may be coming for dinner, 2 or 20, he always gets a 25 pound turkey. So we always have turkey leftovers, and while I love cold turkey sandwiches, I can only eat so many. I was thrilled to find this Southern Kentucky Family Turkey Hash Stew recipe at The Kitchen Witch 3. There is nothing like an old family handed down recipe to make your family get-together complete.
Ok, now it's time for me to get dressed and get moving. The boys will be here sometime late tonight, and I AM SOOOO EXCITED!!!! I pray everyone of you readers have a very wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving. I'll see you all Friday.
