Don’t mind the green tint, I always add a bit of greens to any smoothie I make. It’s my way making sure I get my nutrients in the for the day…or at least that’s what I tell myself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then it was off to prepare Thanksgiving dinner. My family has never been traditional when it comes to any holiday. This holiday meal was no different. Each year I typically make something I don’t normally. Sometimes I try to make something new;  like my failed attempt at my Grandmothers Yeast Rolls last year.

The menu this year consisted of: Eight Cheese Vegetable Lasagna, Collard Greens and Butternut Squash. It was all so wonderful! I must say I out did myself this year.
