Inspiring Christmas Quotes, Gift Ideas & Thanksgiving 2020

Extra Simple Thanksgiving 2020

Since it was only the three of us (husband and eldest son) this year, it was easy to simply: roast a turkey (in a bag), mash potatoes, and make stuffing the night before (with home baked bread). I also served just one salad (cabbage, cherry, almond with gorgonzola dressing), one appetizer (cheese board & cranberry cherry apple champagne cocktail) and one dessert (gooey butter cake) instead of 30!

This sweet cheese appetizer looks cute on a rustic wood slice, and the round shape makes assembly easier than working on a rectangular board.

Easy & Cute Appetizer

This cheese platter with pear shaped turkey was inspired by the one I saw on Itsalwaysautumn, and mine is a smaller simpler version - Hello Lovely Studio. #thanksgivingrecipes #cheeseboard #cuteappetizer #appetizerideas

After seeing this idea on Pinterest, I knew I had to give it a whirl. Eyes were cut and shaped from a dried cranberry, wattle is red pepper, feathers are green apple and fresh cranberries, legs are a broken pretzel, and the beak is cheddar.
