I always think that I should do more to decorate for the holidays, especially when I see those fancy table decorations in magazines. They always boast about how you (the reader) can decorate your table just like the one pictured in the magazine. I really like the simple and elegant the table decorations (seen below).

I’m not much of a turkey fan; however, this turkey sandwich made my mouth water. I like they layers of turkey, dressing, and cranberry sauce… yummy!

I really love sweet potato casserole and this photo below shows that you can top it with either marshmellows (like I usually do) or a nut crumble mix. I think SPC is yummy either way!

A couple of years ago, my husband decided that he thinks he likes pumpkin pie. I think it was my pumpkin bread with cream filling that he liked so much, but this recipe below sounds yummy!

Pumpkin Pie dip is good with apples or graham crackers… super yummy!
