Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  As I am sitting here writing this post, I can't help but remember last Thanksgiving.  I was pregnant with my twin boys and we had 500 cook book orders pending.  Right after Thanksgiving, I ended up getting put on strict bedrest (which continued until I delivered on St. Patrick's Day!)  Fortunately, my husband and our families pitched in and helped us pack up and deliver all 500 of those cookbooks!  I was able to do all of the correspondence and paperwork from the couch, so that kept me busy.  And everything ended up fine in the end.  The boys were born prematurely, but they were healthy and strong.  They are eight months old now and doing great.  I am so thankful for that!  And I am so thankful for all of the help our families have given us!

We ended up doing a second printing of the cookbooks, so we do have some books available again this year.  They make great Christmas/Hannukah gifts (they are especially good for teacher gifts)!  They are $16.95 (including tax).  Ordering info is in this post: Savory Secrets Cookbook Ordering Info .  I think I have about 100 books left for sale.

I also wanted to give everyone a tip.  If you are fortunate enough to have leftover turkey and need some recipes to use it up, the Chicken and Wildrice Casserole I posted awhile back can also be made with turkey! Just substitute the same amount of cooked turkey in place of the chicken.  One reader commented that she added frozen veggies to the casserole and I thought that was a great idea!  I also saw a similar recipe online that called for a can of green beans (or you could probably use about two cups of frozen).

Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
