How to throw this party:

1) Cover the table in sale flyers to get everyone in the shopping spirit.

2) Have ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’ playing on the TV.

3) Loot your kids toys for some extra decorating ideas, such as toy cash registers and Monopoly money.

4) We coated brightly colored mini plastic shopping carts in metallic silver spray paint.

5) Hit the dollar store for play money, receipt pads, placemats and boxes (for shopping carts).

6) Create an invitation to look like a credit card.

Baby on board!
Braving the crowds.
Receipt pads from the dollar store were used as place cards.

The Top 5 Ways to Liven Up Thanksgiving

142_156878759_l

Love your Thanksgiving traditions but feeling a bit of turkey tedium? Here are 5 ways you can liven things up (It’s a Turkeypalooza!) and leave everyone feeling grateful.

1) DO THE UNEXPECTED
There’s only so much fun you can have with pumpkins and potatoes. Consider adding some creative décor ideas such as dollar store turkey basters as place cards and swags of Bounty chocolate bars hung across doorways.

2) BE GAME
How about getting in the spirit with a round of Thanksgiving Trivia between courses and watch as aunts and uncles duke it out over the prize, a bottle of Wild Turkey.

3) STEP RIGHT UP
A super sweet idea for the kids is to set up a Caramel Apple Station for dessert. With toppings such as sprinkles, candy and mini marshmallows, you can’t go wrong.

4) SAY ‘THANKS’ AT THE TABLE
Wrap your table in muslin and provide guests with fabric markers and the chance to write/draw what they’re grateful for. Keep adding to this special cloth year after year.

5) RELAX
Sounds impossible, right? Not so. Put out a buffet of foods that can be prepared in advance and make it even easier for little kids by putting together mini turkey and stuffing sandwiches slathered in homemade cranberry sauce

Meatless Monday

Being rhythmically challenged (Lisa does the cadaver dance while I’m prone to whip out the Elaine Benes “little kicks”), we shudder at anything involving the phrase “two-step.” That is, until now. Elegant and easy, this two-step crusted salmon, the ideal pairing of fish and dill, makes it effortless to keep perfect tempo.

This Blazing Beef and Bean Chili is hot stuff. A dynamite mix of chili powder, red pepper flakes and cayenne, mingled with intense cocoa powder, sweet tomatoes, fiber-rich beans and well-seasoned meat, it can rival any Lone Star chili joint. In a big bowl or piled atop a hot dog or fries, this one is a Chilympic winner.
