December is here, and it is unofficially the party season. Or at least it seems that way. Work parties, cookie exchanges, get togethers with friends, family events, and New Years Eve is right around the corner as well…it really doesn’t seem to end this time of year. I am not complaining at all, I love getting together with others and having an excuse to enjoy a glass of sparkling wine with a few appetizers.
Are you ready for another giveaway? Yeah, figured you would be. I think I have made my love for Mexican food and avocados pretty clear on here. If you are a new reader, be sure to search the recipe index. Avocados make an appearance quite often. And there is no shortage of Mexican inspired recipes. So to say I was excited for The New Southwest from Meagan Micozzi from Scarletta Bakes is a little bit of an understatement. If you are not familiar with her, be sure to check out her blog as well.
Today we are kicking off December with a giveaway. There are a lot of giveaways coming up over the next month, so I hope you like winning free stuff! A few of my favorite things are going to be involved too. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. My parents are visiting, so we have had lots family time and lots of good food. On Thanksgiving my brother and his wife came up from Denver. We also had a friend join us. It was a full house, and we went very non-traditional and had Calzones and homemade cannolis. It was fun to switch things up this year.
Thanksgiving is tomorrow! I am sure you menu is set, and the shopping is done. So now it is time to think about what you are going to do with all of those leftovers. I can only eat so many turkey sandwiches before I am fed up. So today I have a great line up leftover recipes. Everything from turkey to sweet potatoes. There are over 50 ideas here, so you are sure to find something to please the whole family!
I hope you enjoyed all the giveaways last week! Stay tuned because once December starts there are giveaways like crazy until Christmas. All sorts of great recipes as well. But before we get to that, we have Thanksgiving to worry about. Are you ready? Is your menu planned? Have you done all the shopping? I am ready, so now I am thinking about leftovers. I have a big round up of leftover ideas coming for you on Wednesday, so stay tuned. But today is this enchilada recipe that will use up your leftover turkey.
Today is the conclusion of Pie Week. I hope you enjoyed all of the pies that were shared over the week. Brandy and Audra did a great job putting everything together. Today there is an amazing giveaway thanks to Kitchen Aid. Don’t miss the other giveaways either; OXO and Le Creuset, Cabot and King Arthur Flour. So many great things you can win, I have to say I am just slightly jealous!
Welcome to Pie Week! Pie Week is the mastermind of Audra and Brandy. It actually started on Monday, but I had something else going on, so I couldn’t join in the fun. We have giveaways each day, and lots of pie! Seriously, can you get better than free stuff and pie? I didn’t think so! Today’s prizes (yes, there is more than one) are from OXO and Le Creuset – a total of 4 winners! So make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom to enter, and check out all the other great pies.
