What a week this has been!  We moved yesterday and although we made good progress, my bedroom is stacked with boxes of clothes and no where to put them yet.  Luckily we prioritized and the kitchen is ready to go.  Both of us are loving our new place and with twice the amount of space as our last apartment, it is nice to be able to come home and breathe!  I’d love to finish everything here, but I’m off to San Francisco tomorrow morning for the Foodbuzz Festival, a weekend of blog networking and food., ie heaven.

And in other exciting news, this will be the first year that Matt and I will host Thanksgiving.  I’m so glad we had five years of practice because now I don’t have to be too nervous.  On the other hand, I have so many desserts much food that I want to make and I need to work on my menu editing skills!  Otherwise I’m going to need to spend the next three weeks in the kitchen.

So since I’m busy with menu planning, I figured I’d share some ideas from Keep It Sweet and other blogs for your holiday dinner!
