Enjoy The Calm Before The Storm!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, which means things will soon get hectic, boisterous, filling and tiring! Take time before the big event to spend some quality -- and quiet -- time with the family, before the hustle and bustle of the holiday begins!
This soup recipe, courtesy of Eating Well, is one that will fill you, warm you, and because it's so good, you won't have to worry about leftovers! Not only that, but you won't likely encounter this dish on Thanksgiving, ensuring the feast of the day is not a re-do!
Branch out and discover your family tree!
This is the perfect family activity before a holiday gathering! It's a great way to explore your family history and a good project to help explain to your kids who-is-related-to-who. Either design your own family tree poster, or use this creative idea from TLC. Putting together your family tree poster will be a fun learning experience. Try to include the relatives who will be at Thanksgiving dinner, and display the final project on Thanksgiving -- it will be a great conversation starter!
