The big day is getting closer and our menu is coming together. My husband, Greg, is determined to try out a deep-fried turkey so we bought an indoor deep-frying machine and tried it out on a whole chicken this weekend. I have to say that I wasn't convinced that a deep-frying machine was something necessary to making the perfect turkey dinner, but OH MY! Have you tried meat in a deep fryer? Ok, maybe I should have known better. How is anything fried not good. It was amazing! I am now totally on board with this deep-fried turkey thing!
For decorations, I did a BE Thankful mantle. I made this banner last year. This post will show you the complete project.
In our foyer is my Thankful tree. This is another DIY project that I made last year and really like. Using wood slices painted with chalkboard paint, as a family, we wrote all the things we are thankful for and hung them on the branches I gathered. It's a visual reminder every time I pass that we have so much to be thankful for and a good exercise for my children as well.
