Thanksgiving, cookbooks and Kindle Fire HDX

Have you planned your Thanksgiving menu?   Nope, me either.  However, with that said, I do have some of what I will be preparing in the back of my head.   Turkey will be involved,   Dressing will have to be on the table if I am allowed to stay in the house.   And of course, somewhere, somehow, a pecan pie or two may creep in to the plan.  There will be other desserts, sides, meats; you see, Thanksgiving is the time to be thankful!  And boys howdy, am I thankful – thankful for my God, my family, friends, thankful I have a job to go to, and thankful there is food on the table for all to enjoy.  

I am pouring over cookbooks, magazines, to see if there is just that something “extra” and new that might want to find its way on to the table, also, during the week of celebrations. Or something I may wish to make and take to a neighbor.  How about you?  Cooking something special?  Going with traditional?   I love that what’s traditional with one isn’t necessarily traditional with others.   Make your own memories, I say.   

So to help you along, to help you keep up with your cookbooks, I am giving away for your Thanksgiving pleasure, a new Kindle Fire HDX 7″ Tablet.  This thing is pretty up there.   Cool new features, and the best part is there is a button you can tap and a live person comes on the screen to answer tech questions!  (I need one of those right now on my computer!!!!)  To see all the features, amazon site can show all of them.  There are just too many to list here!  Its PURTY!



Want to win it and give it a try?   Just leave a comment below and tell us what your Thanksgiving plans are.   I love to hear about what everyone is doing!  Everyone has until midnight, Thursday, November 7th, to reply.  A winner will be selected by on  Friday morning  November 8th and posted here.   

Good luck, everyone!  Have a very Blessed Week!

  1. Wellll, I have lots of Thanksgiving plans. Thanksgiving kicks off with the “Phillips’ Thanksgiving” on November 16. I’m bringing baked beans. 🙂 Then on Thanksgiving Day, Nolan and I will be celebrating Thanksgiving with my boyfriend’s (yes, I said boyfriend) family at noon.

  4. I say . . . add an oyster or two to that dressing of yours! Yum, yum! I lived in the late 1990’s in Daphne/Fairhope and worked in Mobile, AL . . . and the tradition of such was born there with me! The only problem is living this far inland . . . but, even the pickiest of eaters can find a way if the will is there! Plans are still burgeoning as I type, but I am sure to be thankful for a full tummy and the love of family and friends (smile)!

  10. The girls have all grown and have their own kitchen now. Everyone will bring a dish and we will meet at grammie and grampas house this year. My hubby makes the fried turkey while grammie does a breast and we do something different somewhere in the mix.

We will miss her this year!
