Monday Meanderings

Good Morning.  It it warm and muggy this morning.  We are going to hit 90 degrees today.  It is 75 at 8:30.  I will be so glad of a cool down. 

Took some pictures of Bri and the outdoor Halloween display by her play yard.

I am also sharing some recipes for some Thanksgiving sides.  This one serves 8-10.
