Foodie Friday!

Yeah it is Friday!
However, as a SAHM I really do not think that holds much meaning. Do you?

Since every place I look is all gun-ho for Christmas, I decided to focus on the holiday that gets lost in the mix:

Thanksgiving!!!!!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! I mean what is not to love? Family, Food and Fun!

Oh and did I mention food?

We usually, much to my chagrin, go away for Thanksgiving!

However - this year everyone is coming to my home! I am so excited - I have not cooked an "OFFICIAL" Thanksgiving meal in 3 years!!!

I have my tried and true favorites and have already purchased many of them!

Today I will be sharing these wonderful products and in upcoming posts will share recipes using these ingredients!


Tuesday I headed to the mall and hit my FAVORITE store: Williams-Sonoma!!!
I do not know what I would do without that place!!!



We buy these turkeys all the time and they are wonderful!


Willie Bird Organic Free-Range Turkey






Don't feel like making your gravy from scratch, well this makes an awesome gravy!

Turkey Gravy Base





Hot soup that tastes great and is easy to make! This is a favorite in our home!

Organic Butternut Squash Puree





This next ingredient can be used so many ways - I always have it in my pantry!

Pecan Pumpkin Butter





Personally, I do not like cranberry sauce, but this is my husbands favorite!

Apple-Orange Cranberry Relish




Well, there are more, but you get the picture!!!
Coming next - recipes incorporating these ingredients!

Until tomorrow:
Go Ahead and Indulge!

I can just imagine that you'll have the dessert part covered for sure!

I love Thanksgiving too...Not the stress of Christmas, just kind of a laid back "family" day.
We usually eat at the DEFAC with the soldiers...the one here at Fort Carson puts on an amazing feast...
