So Thankful for Thanksgiving…

Thanksgiving is always a wonderful time in the Ruscica household. As my children have grown up, I've tried to stress that we really should use this weekend (and the rest of the year!) as an opportunity to be thankful for all that we do have. Life can be a little crazy at times and sometimes we can all forget to be appreciative.

This upcoming long weekend I have plans to have my friends and family over for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. As I’m sure you've guessed, I absolutely love putting together a spread for all of our Thanksgiving dinner guests. We always have turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetables and a delicious fall-inspired dessert. Yum! My mouth is watering just thinking about it! I try to get the whole family involved in the process whether it be chopping vegetables, preparing the turkey, or mashing the potatoes.

I thought this would be a great opportunity to include a delicious and simple recipe that you can try, whether it be for your Thanksgiving dinner this weekend or just for a fall-inspired treat. Canadian Living has great Thanksgiving dessert recipes! I've included the link to a particularly Canadian recipe, delicious Maple Butter Tarts. You can serve these after your Thanksgiving feast this weekend.

I’m thankful for so many things but especially my family, health and more recently the exciting launch of the Kidco Kitchen. I hope all of our Kids & Company families have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! Be sure to let me know what you ended up enjoying this weekend by tweeting me @KidcoKitchen
