|Sweet Potato Pie, the most popular recipe on this blog. Yup, I'll be making some for Thanksgiving, as usual.|
I'm not in charge of the big meal for Thanksgiving, but if you are in need of some holiday cooking assistance, my favorite grocery store in the world is hosting their third annual Chefs On Call program for Thanksgiving. You can reach a ShopRite chef at 1-800-SHOPRITE to get assistance with your holiday cooking drama. Read more about it here.
On to the next major holiday...
Although I said I wasn't going to go "all out" for Christmas, we've already started decorating. Last year we hosted Christmas at our home and while it was fun I was quite stressed and I wanted to be a bit more low key in 2010. In spite of my reluctance to let things get "out of hand" (too many gifts, too many parties, etc.) we've decided to go ahead and put the decorations up before Thanksgiving. We have a small home and the Christmas stuff looks much better decking our halls than it does stacked up in the basement. Plus, it makes me smile.

|Our circa 1987 artificial Christmas tree. This thing has traveled with our family from New Jersey to three houses in Delaware... decorations coming soon.|
I'm off do do my pre-Thanksgiving loop of Costco, Target, and ShopRite. Yes, I've already hit up those stores at least two times this week, but there's always something last minute... you know how it is!
