"The" Smoothie [video] & A My Thanksgiving Dinner

I’m so sorry I’ve been slacking in the Thanksgiving recipe department. I feel like a bad food blogger. Everyone else is posting festive ideas and here I’ve gone missing for a few days.

Maybe it’s because I’m not doing anything special for Turkey day. I finally got my holiday cooking traditions established and now I’m just in execution mode. My menu consists of…

Snack-tastic Lunch

  • Whole Grain Pretzels

  • Red Pepper Strips
  • “Aussie Apple” (Sheri gave me this idea in the comments. Cut an apple and then put it back together held by a rubber band so it doesn’t brown. Worked like a charm!
  • Skittles (The Halloween Candy should be coming to an end soon!)
  • Water
