Thanksgiving Dinner

Since we won't be able to be with all our children and their families on Thanksgiving next weekend, we will have our Thanksgiving dinner today. We really do have lots to be thankful for. The top two being, our family and our health.

So since we got up this morning, we've been preparing a dinner as we await the arrival of our kids and their kids. The apple and pumpkin pies are in the oven. The stuffing is made and just cooling before it goes in the bird.

I didn't have a chance to mention it before, but my friend Linda H. is a troublemaker. Sometimes she does things that send me on a "I want to do it too" kick. Last week she was making decadent chocolate truffles for her son's wedding which is next weekend. I went over and helped her roll the truffles in cocoa. I went home and just had to make a batch. They are so delicious. But you can imagine what the problem is. I'm eating them every day. So I made up nice little containers done up with truffles in them for my girls. They can each take some home to enjoy . Want Linda's recipe, click here. She posts about what chocolate she uses here.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
