Our Allstar Ambassador activity for the month of November was to create "Our Best Thanksgiving".  While I love all things Thanksgiving (and I DO) this month's activity was just OK for me.  

First, I had all sorts of problems with my camera and was unable to take and download pictures.

Secondly, I figured out that I did my Pinterest Board wrong, go figure.

Thirdly, I had to use Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup - yuck.

Mostly, though this reminds me that I'm sad that I am not the one that cooks Thanksgiving dinner for my family.  Mom does and has for 50 years.  It's her holiday.  She is an expert and I LOVE the meal every year!!!  It's just that it has been the same menu for 50 years (Dad's a traditionalist).  Since I do a lot of cookbook, food website and food blog reading there are so many new and different Thanksgiving dishes I am dying to try.  Oh well, at least I don't have to do the shopping!

I am in charge, every year, of making the Thanksgiving day soup.  Using Swanson's Chicken Broth I created a fabulous French Onion Soup.  It was delicious, everyone enjoyed it and it was a great soup to start Thanksgiving...sorry no pictures :(
