Snapshots From My Home and Travels Week 33

Sharing is caring!

Snapshots From My Home and Travels Week 33 has me in full Thanksgiving mode, and some Christmas too.  What about you?  Are you ready for Thanksgiving?  I have just a couple of grocery items to buy, a note to put the turkey in the refrigerator on Monday, and dishes planned.


If you are still need ideas for Thanksgiving – let me know.  I have a lot here to suggest.  From side dishes to sauces to desserts (lots of pumpkin).


Just think a week from now most Thanksgiving leftovers will probably be gone, maybe you went out and shopped, or putting up your Christmas décor.  It should be about all of that at my house.


Cold weather has come to Tennessee, well at least for us.  Frosty mornings are happening.  Thank goodness for the luxury of seat warmers. 


Here’s what I had on the blog this week in case you missed it.

  1. Hi Rosemary, there are so many fabulous recipes here! To be honest, I prefer to make sweet treats over savory dishes, that is unless it is a bread recipe! Thank you for sharing so many great links and recipes, my sauces too! By the way, I loved your trip to Hershey, there is such an interesting history there that most people to do not know about, it is more than just candy! Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
