Thanksgiving Menu Farmgirl Style

PHEW!!  I wasn’t sure this moment would happen but I managed to pull myself up by my boot straps and got the Turkey Day festivities figured out in record time.  There’s not a spreadsheet, but definitely a long grocery list and hopefully a colorful menu with clipart later.  ha!  I’ll post recipes for as many as I can later.  Just a note – if you love chocolate and pie – the Chocolate Whipped Cream Pie is TO DIE FOR!  I made it for Thanksgiving a few years back as my first go at it and the children managed to obliterate it before any adults could even lift a fork.  Needless to say we were all diving in for the last bits on the bottom of the pie plate.  After that I swore I would always make 2!  If you want to be a rock star in your home of chocoholics – this recipe will do it for you!
