Don't Fret! Thanksgiving's Coming Quick

If you've not made your Thanksgiving week menu yet, perhaps you'll find something here to help you.  May God bless you as you focus on Him.

It's upon us again!  Thanksgiving week is one of anticipation, excitement, and work!  Are you feeling stressed about getting it all together for the big meal?  Now is the time to think it out and make some lists. BUT-- if you're making a turkey, go put it in the fridge right now.  No really, right now!  It takes at least three days in the fridge for my turkey to thaw.  I don't even want to remember what happened the time I didn't let it thaw long enough.  Ugh!  So go now.  I'll wait for you.  I'm doing it, too.  
All done?
Me too.
Note:  If you're reading this, and you've not got enough time for your turkey to thaw, you can thaw it in cold water in the sink, but keep changing the water regularly.  If it gets warm, it can lead to food poisoning.

My next step is to plan my menu for the next few days.

Lunch - Peanut butter sandwiches

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Thanking my Jesus at Home
May I suggest?


  1. Your Thanksgiving menu sounds just like the one I grew up with, Laura. Reminds me of my mother's kitchen. Happy Thanksgiving. ~ Nancy

  3. I am counting the days until the feast. Can't wait!! Thanks for sharing with SYC. Happy Thanksgiving to you!!

    1. I didn't have anything yet this morning for the feast. By evening, I was amazed. I was given a total of three turkeys, a big box of canned and boxed goods to make the dinner and dessert, and lots of other ingredients that make some of our family's special dishes. I've got to recheck all of my recipes, but I don't think I'm going to have to buy anything! Wow! God is amazing! I'm always in awe of how God speaks to people and lets them know the perfect time to help someone in need.

      Have a happy Thanksgiving!
