Holiday Cheer: Days 10 through 15

"Come, let us sing joyfully to the LORD; cry out to the rock of our salvation. 
Let us greet him with a song of praise, joyfully sing out our psalms. 
For the LORD is the great God, the great king over all gods, 
Whose hand holds the depths of the earth; who owns the tops of the mountains. 
The sea and dry land belong to God, who made them, formed them by hand. 
Enter, let us bow down in worship; let us kneel before the LORD who made us. 
For this is our God, whose people we are, God's well-tended flock."  ~ Psalm 95:1-7

This week is obviously a busy one, so I am making one post for the week. I should be back but just in case things get to busy "in real life", here is my Thanksgiving time post. I'll also be putting up recipes as I can. They are not for Thanksgiving, of course, but for the holidays in general and Christmas dinner if you do that. We've always done a big family dinner on Christmas day with a turkey, a ham, and all the fixins, just like on Thanksgiving.

Getting things done & Homefront - This week is just for food preps and enjoying Thanksgiving with the family. Tuesday I will send my family photos I took for the Christmas cards to be printed. The kids will help with the cooking and tidying the house a bit.

Food - You can make plenty of food over the next few days, rather than spending most of Thanksgiving day rushing to make all of the food. Pie crusts and even some pies can be made ahead and frozen. Cranberry sauce can be made ahead and refrigerated. Appetizers such as dips can be made ahead and frozen for refrigerated. Veggies can be cut up. You can see a great sample cooking plan for the week at Annie's Eats.

Family, Faith, Fun - Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy!
