Thankful for Pinterest!

I've been saying for quite some time that I *will* make the food on my  Pinterest boards. I will. I will. I will! Well.... I finally did! AND.. I broke it out for Thanksgiving weekend.I thought I would cook enough and be done with it. Not the case! The next day we opted out of shopping and decided to stay home and cook more! No Black Friday?!?! I never thought I would see the day! Pinterest has taken over!!!!

Of course on Thanksgiving Day we have the traditional Turkey, ham, all of the fixins and more desserts than we could ever need. For Breakfast, we had a big ol southern breakfast... Quiche, sausage, apple turnovers and a Pillsbury Cream Cheese Crescent Roll Danish straight from Pinterest!
Crescent Roll Cream Cheese Danish. Want the Recipe? Check it out on my Pinterest board! 

Big 'ol Southern Style Breakfast!
Blueberry Muffins, Sausage Balls, Hasbrowns, Bacon, Cheese and Onion Quiche, Homemade Apple Turnovers, Pigs in a Blanket, Donuts and Crescent Roll Cream Cheese Danish.
 This is one of my favorite dishes...my sister-in-laws' Brussel Sprouts. She sautee's them in a tiny bit of butter, brown sugar, onion and bacon. OMG. Delicious. I could literally eat the whole pan!
 For lunch, we made some football watching food... chicken wings, turkey salad, croissant rolls and Pinterest Pizza Dip! Pizza Dip was the hit of weekend. The kids loved it but we decided that the next time we make it we will add mushrooms and the smaller pepperonis. As always in my house, we give all thanks to GOD first and are thankful for our family, health and friends! This year we celebrated the day with  Good Food, Big Family and Great Memories!!
The Pizza Dip was the hit of the weekend! My kiddos and family LOVED it! Get the recipe here.

The Weekend of the BIG Head!

How excited was I to go to the Season Opener of the Alabama Basketball game and spot this guy??  It was like seeing a MAJOR Celeb!! He is quickly becoming the "Face" of Bama Basketball!!
Well that was Friday night. Let's move on to Saturday. Time for the Alabama vs. Texas A&M game. Huge game? Yes. Big Game? Yes.
So OMG. How excited was I to be standing outside of Bryant-Denney Stadium and see a LARGER than life Nick Saban Head coming right towards me???? OMG.  The weekend of spotting the BIG HEADS...Yeah!!!!
I love this Pic of me and my friend Meredith actually holding our pal Big Saban Head. I mean, would he just die if he ever saw this?? I would think he'd actually be happy and probably laugh. lol.
Saban...if you read my blog, leave a comment and Roll Tide Roll! :)
