The Organized Life, November Paint Bucket

Happy November!


Now that we’ve trick or treated  👻


And fallen back 🍂  Do you remember Shirley Temple?


Time to think Thanksgiving! 🍗

My recipe bucket list this month is a mixture of Thanksgiving appropriate foods as well as comfort food for cooler weather.  I always list many more recipes that I can make, but having a short list of ideas to pick from makes for fast planning of weekly menus

So many tempting recipes, so little time!!
