Garlic Roasted Potatoes

Omg you guys! We have so much to talk about today. First, Happy Monday!!

A: How on earth is it already November?

B: Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Being the obsessively organized person I am, I have already planned my entire menu. (I did it in September) It’s going to be epic, and I’ll be sharing all the recipes here, well before the big day, so you have plenty of time to plan your menu too!

C: One of my all-time favorite people, Ree from The Pioneer Woman, just came out with her latest cookbook and I spent the entire weekend drooling over every recipe. It’s called The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays: 140 Step-by-Step Recipes for Simple, Scrumptious Celebrations and I’ve decided that I’m inviting myself over to her house for every holiday from here on out. Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day, Easter… you name it… all of her holiday menus are out of this world!

The Pioneer Woman Cookbook

D: In honor of Ree’s gorgeous new book, she is offering up  3 signed copies!! Boooyah! We’re kicking off Monday with a bang.

E: I made a batch of her Garlic Roasted Potatoes yesterday and proceeded to fight my husband over who got the last bite. They are game changers – that is for sure!

F: If you haven’t already ordered yourself a copy, you absolutely should!! Like I said, this book is LOADED with fantastic holiday recipes for an entire calendar year, and each page is infused with Ree’s bubbly personality and humor. I’d like to jump right in and live somewhere between Christmas and 4 of July!

  1. I love getting the whole family together! With 6 brothers and a twin sister, there’s never a dull moment!

  2. Favorite thing about Thanksgiving is spending qualit time with famil and also all of the great food is such a blessing. I’m sorr , the letter between the t and u on m keboard is not working.

  3. Thanksgiving means food, but more importantly Thanksgiving means getting together with family and friends. As much as I love the special foods, I’m looking forward to being with family more. That said, I have no idea where or who we’ll be spending Thanksgiving with — two weeks from today (eek!). It always works out, though.

  4. Thanksgiving is the holiday which sets off the holidays for the rest of the year. We vocalize to our Lord around the table the reason we are specially thankful for this year Family and friend come together to enjoy our favorite recipes. The bonus of this holiday is that it is about the food!! Also, we pick names for our gift exchanges which kicks off the official holiday season! I love, love, love Thanksgiving!

  10. I absolutely love the food involved around the holiday. And yes, because it all tastes wonderful, but mostly because it brings people together. I love talking about where the recipes came from… Aunts or Grandma or moms amazing dish or people excited because they found a keeper in a great cookbook or on Pinterest.
