I had a few successes (is that a word??) this Thanksgiving, so I want to put the links here on my blog so that I can find them again next year. I hate when I have to search and search for the links that I have used in the past---darn that internet is a big place:)
FIRST OFF...I have to admit something a little embarrassing. I MADE HOMEMADE ROLLS by myself for the first time EVER!!! I know...hard to believe for a 30 year old housewife. BUT I have always let others do it, or been happy with the lovely rolls from the store. BUT I saw this recipe (on PINTEREST of course) and got it into my head that I wanted to bake. SO I DID. It was so easy and actually kinda fun. NOW if only bread didn't make me gain weight just by having it in the house...
Now I realize I am the youngest child in my family and that by law my family cannot put me down. AND I know that my family would praise me for bringing canned olives to dinner. BUT despite that, they did ALL tell me how good these were. SOOO I am pretty sure they meant it:)
These were seriously easy enough that my happy helper got to roll a few up. AND she got to eat the first one (and she liked it)!!!
Thanksgiving printable placemats. I printed these up, cut them out, and glued them onto cardstock. There were lots of different free printable mats, but these were the only ones I found that printed on regular 8.8x11 papaer. Cannot beat that!!! I took them for the kids table and they super enjoyed coloring away....worked like a charm!!! BUT there were tons more free printable on the site...napking rings, centerpiece, banner, tons of stuff. Next year I think I need to go all out. Since I don't EVER have to cook the turkey, I should be in charge of something (besides canned olives).
