My menu is set and I need to shop now. Here’s my menu with links to the recipes I will use. Menu Holiday Cranberry Sauce – Simple but good! I once made one of those fancy cranberry sauces and it was too much for my taste. Truthfully, I like the stuff that comes out of the can too! http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Holiday-Cranberry-Sauce/Detail.aspx Turkey Stuffing/Dressing – I use the recipe here. I add water chestnuts & pine nuts to it. When I worked at Houlihan’s in my younger years, the stuffing they made for their Thanksgiving dinner was so good and it had water...

This is a picture from last year. FROM AMY:I don’t know about you but I wasn’t as excited about the snow as my kids were this morning. My children were convinced that it is time to sled ride and build snowmen. I tried to tell them that there isn’t enough snow. They weren’t convinced… .until we stood outside waiting for buses and then they realized they couldn’t go very far...

Overall it’s an online social tool. One can use Facebook to catch up, to waste time, or to organize an event , reconnect with a long lost friend, and...
