Thanksgiving week is upon us! Seemed to come so much quicker this year! I love this holiday and love it even more that I don't have to do all the cooking at my house. Hubby and I make a few sides and desserts and head the family to my mother's! As long as she doesn't mind we'll keep going to her house. Although when you go to someone else's house you don't usually get much for left overs right? Right. So we like to cook up our own turkey the day before with sides so on Thanksgiving night once we are home and the next day we have something to enjoy. Works for us!
Here's what our week looks like!
- Whole Wheat Berry Puff Pancake
- Cranberry Banana Smoothies
- Cereal & yogurt
- Eggs, toast, fruit
- Thanksgiving Morning: Clean Eating Strawberry Scones (switch strawberries to pumpkin/chocolate chip)
- Individual Whole Wheat Puff Pancakes with Personal Toppings
- Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken Breasts
- Salisbury Steak with Baked Sweet Potato Fries, broccoli
- Baked Parmesan Tilapia, brown rice, roasted Brussels sprouts
- Cooking a Turkey with Garlic Mashed Potatoes, butternut squash, cranberry jelly
- Thanksgiving at my mom's
- Left overs
- It's My Birthday! Out To Eat!

Love your site! Do you have a recipe for sugar free coffee creamer?
No I don't, I'm sorry.
Hi Diane Lathrop , may be is too late, but for a perfect coffee with cream, I beat the cream with a little vanilla essence and a touch of splenda, as you like it.
Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Enjoy!
