My fav from last week’s party is this Roasted Autumn Squash Soup from Spoonful of FlavorRoasted-Autumn-Squash-Soup_1

The holidays are quickly approaching us. Can you believe that next week Thanksgiving will be here? Not only am I looking forward to Thanksgiving, I’m looking forward to vacation! I only work on Monday the week of Thanksgiving. Then I’m off until the following Monday. Woot. For Thanksgiving, we will be traveling to my mom’s house over on the west coast of Florida. My brother and his family will be there as well.

What are your plans for Thanksgiving?

    Luckily, I don’t have to travel for Thanksgiving this year but I am hosting dinner at my house. I still have to decide what to make for dessert. Thanks for featuring my Autumn Squash Soup! Have a great week, Julie!

      You’re welcome, Ashley! Thank you for joining us again this week!

      That’s nice to stay home for the holiday. We always go somewhere on Thanksgiving and Christmas. My mom’s place is a 3 hour drive from where we live and Ken’s family’s place is a 2 1/2 hour drive! So we spend a good part of the holidays driving!

      Enjoy your week, Ashley!

      That is nice that you will be spending time with your sister and brother, Min! Have a great time. Ha, I will be cooking most of the food as well but I am going to do it all on Wednesday so I don’t have to on Thursday!

      Enjoy your week. :)

    Hey Julie! Can’t remember if I’ve ever linked up with you before, this might be a first for me! Hope it’s ok that I shared two recipes – let me know if I should have just shared one. Great party! Going to check out some other people’s links now :)

      Hi Becca! Welcome. I’m glad you stopped by. I love all of your healthy recipes that you share on your blog and the two you shared tonight are great! Two is fine. We don’t really have a limit nor have we had to establish one. Everyone usually links anywhere from 1-5 posts.

      Have a wonderful week!

    I’m with you, I can’t believe it’s Thanksgiving already. Luckily I’m not traveling this year, we are going to the in-laws that live an hour away. Hope you have a great week! Thanks for hosting.

    Thanks so much for the party! I wish you a safe trip while you travel for Thanksgiving. Me and my husband will be eating dinner early, then he will have to work that night. (He works in the ER.)
