Hi all! As promised earlier this week, I am back with the highlights of our Annual Santana Row Christmas Tree Lighting extravaganza. Our tradition started over 5 years ago after this Barefoot Contessa Sighting. Every year since, my friends and I head down to Santana Row for shopping, the Elf on the Shelf Scavenger Hunt[Read More…]
#FlashbackFriday Happy Weekend All! Whether you are driving to visit family or friends or hosting the festivities for everyone at your house, here are a few ideas for Soups, Salads, Sides and Desserts that you could serve up this Thanksgiving and still keep your points budget in tact. I always like bringing at least one healthy, points friendly dish that I know I’ll enjoy to our holiday parties.
Fill up on a soup and salad starter, then, pile on the lean turkey and healthy vegetable sides making a little room for “treats” like stuffing on the side.
I cannot wait to see what we have for our Jamaican Thanksgiving, but, I know it’s going to be a fun to try it all. I am pretty sure I will be making some of these Thanksgiving Day sides for Christmas this year since I’ve been dreaming about them all the way to Jamaica.
Top any of these festive and delicious low points+ soup starters with a Parmesan Crisp.
Need an appetizer – try these THANKSGIVING IN A BALL meatballs
If you want the “real deal” mashed potatoes, then, check out these Creamy Smashed Potatoes.
My personal favorite – STUFFIN’ MUFFINS – make the vegetarian or add a little turkey sausage for a heartier muffin.
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What is your favorite thing to eat on Thanksgiving Day?
I am definitely all about the stuffing, brussels sprouts and green beans with BACON!
Have a fantastic Holiday everyone!
