Well, a couple of my readers have asked if I would talk more about my Thanksgiving... recipes...table setting...etc.

So this week, I am going to post some of my "must" table setting (if I get to it this week) and just my "ins" and "outs" of this coming holiday.

I have hosted Thanksgiving for 10 years now! You must know that my guests are all out of town and stay with us. They arrive on Wednesday so I have to plan all 3 meals for we celebrate Christmas with my family on Wednesday night. So I have to have beds/ towels and rooms made up plus all my Christmas shopping for my side of the family~

**Now do you see why I have a list???

So our Thanksgiving Day begins with a "hearty" breakfast...a light lunch of appetizers and snack buffet to the main Thanksgiving meal.

Today, let's start with breakfast~ On my kitchen island I will have fresh fruit, vanilla yogurt and granola with a swiss/egg "pie"....oh yum! It's so easy but there is NEVER any left over...

Swiss Egg Pie

1 deep dish pie crust

1 cup shredded swiss cheese

5 beaten eggs

1 cup half and half

8 slices of crumbled bacon

dash of pepper;dash of nutmeg;dash of tabasco sauce

Mix all the ingredients up and put in pie crust;Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until lightly brown and set; Let cool a bit and slice.

{If your guests are hard to get out of bed....the smell of bacon is sure to help them "rise"}

p.s. My mom brings the Wednesday night meal.....isn't she sweet? She somehow gets it here...5 hours away but in perfect and "delicious" condition!

This sounds very good-I am glad you are showing your recipes!
We are heading to the Lions game, while my parents babysit before the Thanksgiving Day this hearty breakfast will do the trick here!
I have already made up my Thanksgiving day menu...but I may just postpone sharing it with my sister...I may be adding a few of yours for HER to make!!!
Keep them coming! :)

I'm looking forward to next posts and recipes. But I shouldn't be hungry because it sounds very tasty. I'm going to try your Swiss egg pie immediately next morning. I'm sure that no member of our family will sleep longer after smelling so great breakfast.

Have a nice day,
