Happy Friday friends!
Is it true? I suppose it is. I batted my baby blues and WHAM! Thanksgiving is somehow set to appear in front of us in just 6 short days.
Last year we escaped to Turks and Caicos for the holiday and savored fresh caught conch instead of turkey for our big day dinner. Or maybe we had Thai food? Or was that the night we went out for Italian? No matter what we ate, the important thing is we were together!
This year, my husband and I
were conned volunteered to host my man’s side of the family which could turn into 20+ people at our house. While I’m not too stressed about it thanks to hostessing tips like these finally sinking under my entertaining skin, I AM thinking there’s pretty much nothing wrong with eating out on turkey day :).

This Thanksgiving color-coordinated tart is a showstopper (for your table and your tastebuds).
