Thanksgiving....Gear up!

The week is here! I can't believe it! Sadly I'm not in a very festive mood. I'm hoping this fun week of cooking and baking will get me excited for the holidays. I have a busy busy schedule this week. Between, the normal stuff of, school, homework, kids,and getting ready for the holidays...that is right my kids are sick :( But we can get through it! At least the primary program is over and the super saturday I was in charge of is over and I can breath a little easier. I like to schedule out my cooking for this week, one because I have to do it all, which is fine by me, and two because I have a small kitchen and it is much easier to spread things out and three make thursday a bit more relaxing for me. Here is my plan of attack for this week and I will try and blog through it as well...
Monday: caramel, celery stuffing, pumpkin pie
Tuesday: Green Bean casserole, cheesy onion dip, another pie...not sure what kind :) Sweet pototoes
Wednesay: Rolls, stuffing prep potatoes, Get turkey a moving,
Thursday: finish it all and devour many times over.
But for now, here is a recipe for you to enjoy...
Tradition: the handing down of cutoms through generations...
this is a tradition in my house, no matter how strange it may sound it is delishious and it wouldn't be thanksgiving without.... wait for it......


this comes from my mom's side of the family and no it isn't celery stuffed with easy cheese, or celery with peanut butter and raisins. And no we won't dis-own you from our family if it comes out that you really don't like stuffed celery. ;)

1 head celery, cleaned
1 pkg cream cheese softened
1 small jar green olives with pimentos sliced

Combine green olives and pimentos with the cream cheese. Mix well and fill the celery with cheese mixture, cut stalks into 3 inch pieces and serve cold.

  1. This was my Nana 's recipe your grandfather Murphy's mother Sadie Perkins Murphy. So your great grandmother. This is one of my favorites.. I missed stuffed celery the most the first Thanksgiving I was away from home.
