Can you believe it’s already time to start thinking Thanksgiving? And the big day is just over 3 weeks away (how did that happen?)! Here are some resources from around the web to help you as you plan for both your Thanksgiving feast and cultivating a thankful heart in preparation for the celebration.
Erin Chase from 5DollarDinners.com has just released a new eBook, The $5 Dinner Mom’s Holiday Entertaining Guide. This eBook is a simple holiday entertaining guide to help you be the best hostess or guest during this holiday season. I truly love the meals on 5DollarDinners.com — just the right balance of tasty with frugality, so you know the recipes in this eBook are going to be delicious and affordable and the entertaining tips won’t require Martha Stewart as your mentor.
I just flipped through the eBook and I know that even I could make these recipes — and that’s sayin’ something. It includes appetizers, beverages, main dishes, side dishes, breads and desserts plus how to actually plan your meal so it all comes out hot, what to do with the leftovers and how to do all of this on a budget.
Use the code THANKS at checkout and download the book to your computer, Kindle or Nook for just $1.99.
This is a crazy popular book — moving and inspiring and challenging all in one book. It would be a fantastic book to read over the next three weeks to prepare your heart for a meaningful holiday. One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are by Ann Voskamp for $10.77 with FREE Super Saver Shipping (requires a $25+ order).
I spent about an hour yesterday during nap time searching Pinterest for Thanksgiving inspiration. I found tons of kids crafts, decorating ideas, desserts and a few meal recipes (not much of a cook here) that I pinned to our new Thanksgiving board. I particularly love this Thankful Tree. Go find some bare branches, cut a few circles out of your scrapbooking paper stash that’s been sitting unused for years and get a-thankin’!
