Hi Friends, I hope you’re having a wonderful Thanksgiving week and you’ll be enjoying time with family and friends. I’m getting the shopping done and the guest room ready for our out of town family. We’ll be enjoying our kids and grandkids, roasting a turkey, and I’ll be making our Seven-layer Salad. I love this special holiday! Thanksgiving helps me remember to count my blessings and thank the Lord for all His goodness toward us! Visit the Extra Page of my website for the Seven-layer Salad recipe.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I enjoy decorating the house, setting a pretty table, and sharing the day with family and friends. I look forward to making some of our family’s favorite dishes for our Thanksgiving meal. We’ll be roasting a turkey and making stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, and 7-layer salad. For dessert I’m making a gluten-free apple pie and mini pumpkin tarts.
Melissa decorating the 7-Layer Salad
Creating the 7-Layer Salad is a fun project you might like to try. We cut colorful peppers into small squares, and then use them to add a special design to the top of the salad. The design usually relates to some event in our family that year. We’ve featured the flag of Sudan when our daughter Melissa and her husband Peter were working there. The year our son Ben married Galan, we created a design with wedding bells and their initials. Last year we topped the salad with the name of our daughters’, Megan and Lizzy’s, new business, Dog Wash Depot. I’m smiling just thinking of all the fun we’ve had. Here’s a link to the recipe.
No matter what the circumstances are for you this year . . . there is always one thing that never changes . . . and it’s always a great reason to be thankful:
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”
1 Chronicles 16:34
I hope your Thanksgiving is fun and relaxing and you enjoy some good food and fun times with family and friends. Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!
