Thanksgiving Planning Part 2

As promised, I said I would be back this week to share some recipes. 

Here are some of my favorite appetizers for Thanksgiving or any other occasion. 

Spinach dip - this is a crowd pleaser! This is right off the package of the Knorrs Vegetable Soup Mix.  
  • I substitute the water chestnuts with sliced almonds and I do not add the chopped green onions. 
  • A fun way to serve this is in the middle of a round black bread, which you can pick up in the bakery section of your super market. It's also good with pita chips! 

Another go-to appetizer recipe is buffalo chicken dip

  • I start by boiling a package of chicken tenders. Once they have cooked (about 15 minutes) I shred them with two forks and put into a bowl. 
  • Next add a block of cream cheese and 1 cup of blue cheese dressing into a sauce pan and begin to let it cook and soften. 
  • Once the cream cheese and blue cheese are combined together add 1 cup of Franks Hot Sauce, then add the shredded chicken. 
  • Serve this with tostito scoops.  

One of my favorite Thanksgiving deserts are these Pumpkin cookies - I don't make mine with the icing, they are delicious without it!

What's on your Thanksgiving menu? I can't wait for some good eats!


  1. Nice post on thanksgiving planning! Truly, party planning is a big task for me but recently I hosted a family dinner at event space and had a wonderful time doing all arrangements. My sister-in-law helped me a lot with entire planning process. Had a great experience.

  2. If you care at all about infusing your home or your Thanksgiving gathering with the spirit of the holiday, Thanksgiving decorations are a must. Not only for the interior of your home, Thanksgiving decorations can also be used on your lawn or other exterior components of your house.

  3. We say 'thanks' for the most treasured gifts in our lives--our family, friends and loved one.
