On the Menu Monday (MPM) - Week 40

Seriously people, week 40? I don't know where this week has gone, and there are so many things that I still want to do yet this year. The weekend went by way too quickly, cocktails with some neighbor girls Friday, a housewarming party, a wine event at TCF Stadium and dinner out with the neighbors. It was a beautiful weather weekend, a perfect fall weekend. There was some down time of course too, but not much.

The weather was gorgeous this past weekend, and the colors were beautiful. We drove around some of the lakes and really enjoyed the view!

This week is a week away, no meal planning and another really busy weekend, but full of some good stuff!

Plans - Canadian Thanksgiving
Dinner - NUM! Can;t wait, our Canadian friend C is a FABULOUS cook! Every year she adds something new to the menu, can't wait to see what it is this year. There will be a lot of us with 10 too!

We are hosting Thanksgiving again this year, looking forward to it. Starting to get the menu together, not sure if we will repeat any of the recipes from last year yet, but I know we all loved the cranberry appetizer, so I am sure that will be a repeat. And of course turkey. What about you, do you have any go-to recipes that get made year after year for special occasions?

I am starting to think about the tablescape, I made this floral arrangement using a cornucopia that I picked up somewhere and thought it would make a nice centerpiece. I know the boy is thinking where are we going to store this. . . .
