There's one person in every house who has a TERRIBLE time every Thanksgiving . . . the one who COOKS all day, and never gets thanked.  (Here's an AWESOME new version of "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus, in honor of all those unsung heroes. 

Thanks to our friends at Delicious Audio for this one!

Punch Royal
In a punch bowl or large pitcher, add:
8 ounces Chambord liqueur
8 ounces cranberry juice
2 750-ml bottles Korbel Brut California Champagne, chilled
Stir and garnish with fresh raspberries or blackberries, then serve immediately.
Note: For a dramatic look, use a small Bundt mold to freeze water and raspberries and float the ice with berries in the punch.

Beef Tenderloin Sandwiches with Horseradish Dijon Cream
If you do not have time to cook your own beef tenderloin, pick it up already cooked from your favorite market or the prepared food area of your local grocery store and have it sliced thick (¼-inch).  Place a slice or two of beef on a “slider” or mini hamburger bun and add the Horseradish Dijon Cream or serve it on the side.

Horseradish Dijon Cream
In a small bowl, combine:
1 cup sour cream or non-fat plain yogurt (preferably Greek-style)
¼ cup horseradish
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon Kosher salt
½ teaspoon black pepper

 We think of Thanksgiving as a fattening, once-a-year indulgence.  But actually, there are a bunch of Thanksgiving foods that are GOOD for you. Here are the four best . . .

1.  Turkey -  Turkey is one of the healthiest meats, and it's almost totally fat free.  It's also a great source of protein.  You can prepare it in a low sodium chicken broth if you want to avoid a lot of salt.

2.  Cranberries -  People usually only eat them once a year, but cranberries are one of those healthy super-foods.  They have a bunch of antioxidants and nutrients, so they help prevent ulcers and infections.  They're also loaded with vitamins.

Consider preparing them with applesauce as a sweetener, instead of sugar.

3.  Sweet potatoes -   Sweet potatoes are rich in fiber and minerals, so they're better for you than regular mashed potatoes. 

4.  Apple pie -  Apples are full of vitamins and fiber, so that's a score.  But apple pies usually contain a bunch of spices that are filled with health benefits.  And if you make it with a wheat crust, it's even better for you. Just don't add whipped cream or ice cream.

How to make the PERFECT gravy

Mixing gravy

I personally have never tried the wine method as mentioned in the steps but I think I might have to try. Please click the pic to find out more from Real Simple Magazine.
It's starting to get cold, and I LOVE warm jackets. Here are a couple of picks for nice Anorak Jackets.

I like this one because I have this brand of coat and there is a drawstring waist that you can pull together. You don't look at frumpy in this one. Oh and it's warm!

I clearly love this coat because well, I own it. It is beyond warm and it also has the drawstring waist. I have it in black. I also think LL Bean is one of the greatest companies to purchase anything from. They have the whole lifetime gaurantee.

This is such an amazing story! They shared their first kiss in the 3rd grade duringa play. She was Sleeping Beauty, he was the Prince. 75 years later her prince returned and they married. Do you have a tale of love reunited like this? We'd LOVE to hear it.

I don't get why this is so controversial. Did we forget about Miley Cyrus swinging naked on a wrecking ball?

This was the note that was sent home with the kids. Their lunch included leftover homemade roast beef and potatoes, carrots, an orange and some milk. But the school said there wasn't a "grain" so they gave the kids Ritz Crackers and fined the mother $5 a kid.
