Temptation Tuesdays

It’s been a crazy, lazy jet-laggy kind of week around here. And now, from no-where there are only 3 days left till Thanksgiving – the biggest meal of the year. And more importantly, a chance to look back at the year and appreciate all the good things, to remember family and good friends that have been there for you, and to do something for those less fortunate. For me, Thanksgiving always meant Grandma’s house and lots of stuffing and pie, an early morning church service, and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.

For the last 5ish years, hubby and I have been hosting Thanksgiving for our friends here in Brussels – some expats like us who miss it and others who don’t know the tradition. It’s one of my favourite times of year. So, in lieu of the normal Temptation Tuesdays fare, here’s a round-up of some scrumptious looking T-day dishes in case you’re looking for some last minute additions to your table.

Tempting T-day tidbits from other blogs:

What’s your favourite Thanksgiving Day tradition? For that matter, what’s your favourite dish? I can never seem to get enough stuffing, mmmm stuffing…

    You already know that I’m a stuffing girl too 🙂 Thanks for the link! I saw that pumpkin roll on brown eyed baker too, and am so tempted to make it. My mom said she’s always wanted to try her hand at a pumpkin roll!

    That’s awesome that you host Thanksgiving for your friends who miss the holiday, what a great tradition 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

      My pleasure – can’t wait to try it! That’s funny, one of the first things my mom showed me when I landed was a pumpkin roll recipe. We made it, but BEB’s looks better, especially the frosting.

      Have a great Thanksgiving too =)
