The Organized Life, November Paint Bucket

October has been flying by,

such a beautiful month in so many places!

After tomorrow’s Halloween fun,

it will be time to turn our thoughts

to the November and December holidays

For November’s recipe bucket list,

I am featuring recipes that have traditional Thanksgiving

and Fall ingredients,

prepared in an updated way~

You can still enjoy your traditional favorites on the special days,

but also enjoy the flavors in different ways all month long!

The flavor/theme of the month is Thanksgiving Twists

You can see photos of these recipes in the November section

The flavor of the month was Pumpkin

I used leftover taco meat and fixings

to make a delicious game day party food

Slow Cooker Loaded Taco Dip

I shared ideas for a no cook charcuterie idea in letter trays

which was a big hit at a recent party

Charcuterie Letter Trays

Butter boards are trending right now

so I made individual Pumpkin Pecan Butter Boards

and set a Fall table

Hoisin Chicken is so easy to make,

only 3 ingredients and you can grill it

or make it in a slow cooker

I adapted Cheesy Sausage Potato Soup from Plain Chicken

into Slow Cooker Sausage, Corn & Potato Soup
