Friday Favorites: November 25

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  I must not have eaten enough, because I’m hungry again.  There were a lot of favorites Thanksgiving week.

  • I’m not into getting up at the crack of dawn (or stroke of midnight) for Black Friday shopping.  We started our Christmas shopping in earnest last weekend and earlier this week.  I still have a few more gifts to decide on and other projects, but it seems manageable because I started early.
  • I finished scrapbooking 2010, except the journaling on a couple of pages.
  • I tried some homemade rolls I found on Pinterest.  They were yummy and not too labor intensive.  The best part was they made a lot!
  • My girls were awesome to help out in the kitchen on Pie day and Thanksgiving.  We all worked together the last couple of hours before dinner.  My mom jumped in and helped when she got here too.

If you have time to take a break from shopping and enjoying your family, here’s my favorite links this Friday.

  • Chef Tess shares some recipes for that leftover turkey.  Ours usually makes it to sandwiches and I freeze some for future dinners.
  • Are you tired of pie?  Me either, but these Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars from Two Peas and & Their Pod look mighty good!
  • I’m sure we’ll start decorating for Christmas this weekend.  This snowman from Small Fry & Co. would be a cute addition to our decor.

Please share your favorite part of Thanksgiving and what you are looking forward to this weekend!  I’m hoping to get family pictures taken so I can work on getting Christmas cards mailed out.

Thanksgiving at Arizona Mama

Arizona Mama is in gear for the holidays.  I posted a couple of Thanksgiving articles since the weekend.  First up is our Thankful Cornucopia.  It’s like a gratitude garland for your table.  I also have a great how to article on burning off you Thanksgiving Dinner.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, I’m finishing up my shopping today.  I learned to avoid the grocery stores the day before Thanksgiving.  And besides, tomorrow is Pie Day!

I may or may not be taking a break for the holiday.  Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.  Be sure to come back and share your favorite pies with me!

Pie Day Is Here Again!

Today I’ll be up to my same antics as last year.  In addition to preparing pies and the stuffing foundations, I’ve been busy doing laundry, cleaning the house and getting a jump on next week’s homework.  I’ve already finished my long overdue project of purging the file cabinet and packing the last few year’s tax papers away!  

What do your Pie Day activities include?
