THANKSGIVING

 Thanksgiving is here. I’m excited to spend time with my family and enjoying good food. Planning Thanksgiving dinner can be stressful.

This time I break it up into several days. So on that day I’m not stressful and have time to gather with my family.

 This year I try to use the stuff  natural or organic.
