How I keep sane while hosting Thanksgiving!

Happy Friday y'all!  I find it SO crazy that Thanksgiving is next week.  Thankfully I have a routine and go to recipes that keep me from losing my mind.   As much as I admire my Grandmothers and the hours they spent in the kitchen cooking on Thanksgiving that's just not me.  I try to do as little cooking on Thanksgiving day as possible! #lazy  Tall Tan Man is in charge of the turkey {bc I refuse to touch the big slimy bird} and he either smokes or fries it.   They both turn out amazing and I don't have to lift a finger!  I also ask our family to bring a veggie and I always order our gravy and stuffing from our favorite Denver market.  #bcIdonteatthose

 I make this {Ranch Cheese Ball} as an appetizer and it is always a big hit.  You can make it on Tuesday or Wednesday, and serve it with wheat thins!  I also make cranberry sauce on Tuesday and I use this {Pioneer Women Recipe}.  If you have always thought cranberry sauce is gross then you have to try this recipe!  It changed my opinion.  


Wednesday is my dessert day!  I plan on making this {apple pie} that I posted about last week and hopefully, my Thanksgiving version will be a little prettier...  I am also going to try a new recipe {which always makes me a little nervous} from Living with Landyn Blog.  It is her {Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Frosting}.  Sounds amazing, right?! 


Thursday is alllll about the potatoes for me.  Last year I made my mashed potatoes in the crockpot and they were AMAZING.  I was worried they would be too dry but that was not the case!  You can find the recipe {here}.  I still haven't found a sweet potato recipe I love.  Is there a simple recipe out there that isn't full of sugar?  I never knew I liked sweet potatoes until I had a baby and I baked them for him...  

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  I already did my Thanksgiving grocery shopping so if you need me I'll be on the couch watching football.  And by watching football I mean trying to make sure Mack doesn't jump off anything too high!  #toddlersarecrazy

  2. The next website hosting service down the line can be considered budget hosting. This depends directly on your overall budget though.minecraft server hosting
