I have been giving a lot of thought to the upcoming holidays though! I don't do a lot for Thanksgiving, as the MIL handles that. And MR makes the pie... so it's clean! They don't have to know that, and you don't have to tell them. I am making big plans for Christmas, though. I have been making mental lists of different things I'd like to make. I have no idea what the big entree will be, but boy do I have plans for sides, desserts, and snacks! So those will be coming up soon. Just not today. I am testing a recipe today that I hope will be a big winner so I can share it.
For now, you get to peek at what's on the menu at our house. Since we have Thanksgiving weekend, I don't have to make a big list so here is what I have
Broccoli and Cheddar soup. If you eat bread, serve it with a big hunk of crusty bread to soak up all that goodness!
Peanut Butter Dirt Cake - MR said to me one day that he'd like some dirt cake. And the very next day I ran across this recipe, without even looking for one! I can't wait to try it.
Pumpkin Chipotle Soup - This is my new go-to super-easy soup. It is full of flavor -- and not pumpkin-y tasting -- and always a big hit. I make a batch and eat leftovers for lunch all week. Very willingly, I might add!

Oh you know what?? What the heck. I will share that recipe with you that I am trying out today. I am not serving it until tomorrow, but gosh... it's almond butter and pumpkin... how can that be bad? I added chopped pecans and dried cranberries (no sugar added) for a little extra. You can pretty much add what you want, within reason, I guess!
Almond Butter Pumpkin Bars - Here!... go make you some!
