Preparing for Thanksgiving

We are getting ready for Thanksgiving around here. It finally turned cold over the last few days. We are having some international students over from the School of Ministry. We will be hosting 3 from UK, 2 from France and one from Florida! I started cooking today and here is our menu: Memphis Grilled Turkey, Pineapple Ham, Sweet Potatoes, Mashed Potatoes, Polenta Corn Casserole, Roasted Carrots and Asparagus, Seven Layer Salad, Cranberry Relish, Beets, Jalopeno Bacon Stuffing, Melissa's Famous Green Beans,Deviled Eggs, Rolls, Personal Pumpkin Pies, Dark Chocolate Machinno Pie, & Red Velvet Cheesecake. Yum!!

Miss Allenni loves to cook
Eli is just as good in the kitchen
Tada! Wonderful pumpkin pies!
We had all these little pumpkins that someone had given us and we used some for decoration and I had this thought to make pies with them. We shelled them out and filled them and put the crust on top and voila! they turned out great and were a hit!
The red velvet cheesecake turned out great as well.
7 layer salad, CA version. I added local olives on top

We decided to make Turkeys for everybody's table settings. It was fun. I had seen these at a the kids school and had figured out how to make them.
They are really cute!
