Thanksgiving Survival Guide

So, Thanksgiving is TOMORROW! Not quite sure how that happened, but other than one final trip to the market, I think I’m ready.

Growing up I was always the queen of stuffing ( well, maybe self proclaimed queen )… nonetheless, I was queen. Stuffing has always been my jam.
