Thanksgiving is right around the corner!

Yes, and I am prepared, but unprepared. I typically don’t stress too much over Thanksgiving. For one it is usually not at my house, which this year it is! So maybe I should stress a bit more. Another, I will make a few deserts and that is typically it. But this year we are having a small get together at my house. Several of our family members are traveling this year and won’t be able to be with us. So we are doing a very small meal at my house. There will be 8 of us, which I keep telling myself isn’t a big deal.

Our typical menu consists of a ham and not turkey. I am not a big turkey eater (gasp) and neither are my kids. So years ago I started cooking ham as our Thanksgiving main dish and we love it. I am also planning on doing an apple pie, as always, and my gluten-free stuffing. This is a huge hit every year. I will make it and post the recipe later this week. It’s perfect really for any time of the year. I just had a request for corn bread this morning, so that will be on our menu along with a green bean casserole, corn, salads, relish trays, vegetable trays, and of course another desert (I haven’t quite decided what this one will be yet, but leaning towards some type of cheesecake).

On a side note.. this is a short homeschooling week. My kids are extremely excited for that. They get a little break and will be able to enjoy some down time. Although, I do have plans for them, which they don’t know about yet, but I don’t think they will mind. I am hoping to get a few things done around our house. Then it is off for a horse show this weekend! So we will see what we can get accomplished before then.
