URS: The Last-Minute Thanksgiving Inspiration and Advice Edition

Well, tomorrow in the wee hours of the morning, I’ll be loading sleeping children into the ol’ minivan and hitting the road before {may the Lord will it} the other 5 million Southern Californians driving on I-5 on Thanksgiving Day. Until then, I thought I’d open up this URS for last minute inspiration and advice.

Feel free to link up a Thanksgiving recipe or serving idea. Or if you have a burning question — or a question about something that’s burning in the kitchen — leave that in the comments section. Either I or one of my great readers will do her best to answer it.

In the meantime, here are some of my favorite Thanksgiving links:

So, what recipe, question, story, inspiration have you got to share?

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
