Good morning and happy Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday with family and friends and you ate plenty of delicious food. Ours was pretty low key, very relaxing and I’m still stuffed.
Now it’s time to start thinking about the Holidays. I am not typically a Black Friday shopper. However, I have been considering it this year after seeing Shoprite liquor specials, amongst other great deals on their website. Just not a huge fan of big crowds, but that’s the beauty of online shopping that Shoprite offer. I plan to bring you a Holiday Gift Guide in the near future so today I’m sticking with the typical Friday Favorites, all things food, fitness, fashion, and desserts I’ve been loving lately.
This Thanksgiving it was just my husband and I for dinner but we still cooked a large turkey and all the fixings. Hello leftovers for the next few days. Since it was just the two of us it was nice to spend some quality time together in the kitchen and relaxing on the couch reflecting on all the things we’re grateful for. For dinner Tom is always in charge of the turkey and I made something similar to this stuffing recipe (except with sage sausage and no apples or cranberries), mashed potatoes, and just steamed green beans, roasted brussels and corn. It was the least amount of cooking we had ever done on Thanksgiving so I actually had a lot of time to enjoy snacks and football before hand.
And of course we can’t forget about dessert. Last year I made this Pumpkin Cheesecake Cake it was such a hit I had to do it again. I added a graham cracker crust and made homemade whip cream to top it with. And I may or may not have had two slices, so good!

Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop Seasonal Flavors
Seriously these Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop seasonal flavors sounded so delicious I couldn’t resist grabbing them at the grocery store. They also had a white chocolate peppermint flavor I might pick up in the future. I can’t wait to open these on our next TV or Movie night. They make the perfect snack paired with a glass of wine.
Quest Cereal Bars
Not only has Quest come out with three new flavors this year Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Blueberry Muffin, and Rocky Road. But they also recently released their new Cereal Bars. I am a big fan of the Cinnamon Roll flavor.
