Today I am making my shopping list for all of the recipes I am going to test out before turkey day. I have a few very interesting recipes I found on Pinterest (check out my recipe board), like Cranberry Meringue Pie and Peek-a-boo Pumpkin Pound Cake! We are changing it up a little this year so I thought I would try to change up the dessert too (although truth be told I will always favor a plain ole' pumpkin pie with homemade whip cream)! I'll be testing these recipes and a few others over the next couple days so keep an eye out on the Recipe tab for pics and instructions.
My husband and I normally go to my maternal grandmother's for Thanksgiving but this year we are headed to his father's side's feast because we are getting a few stolen moments with our newest nephew. My husband's oldest sister and her family live in New Hampshire and we only get to see them a few times a year so we like to take advantage of the visits when we can. I was hoping we would have some baby news of our own to share on Thanksgiving but it looks like we will have to wait a little longer. After all those years of trying so hard not to get pregnant it seems crazy that now that we are trying so hard it hasn't happened yet. All in due time I guess... maybe it will be a Christmas surprise! I hope everyone out there has a great Thanksgiving and that everyone remembers to be thankful all year not just for elastic waist bands on turkey day!
