Thanksgiving Menu

Yea Thanksgiving is coming up this week! The four things I love about Thanksgiving are:
  • Cooking with my older kids
  • Enjoying the meal with the family at the table
  • Football
  • Leftovers
I'm very grateful that I can cook for my family on a day that's about taking the time to be grateful for what we have in our life.  So here is the meal plan.

  • Bake Ham (with pineapple and cherries)
  • Turkey
  • Stuffing
  • Candied Yams
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Yellow Rice
  • Sweet Potato Pie
  • Lasagna
  • Potato Salad
  • Canberry
  • Salad
  • Coleslaw
  • Fried Plantains
The twins will be on dessert duty.  They will help me make:
  • Cake (I'll let them decided the flavor)
  • Jello (with and without fruits)
  • Sugar Cookies 
I'm still looking for a veggie dish I can add to the menu.  If any, what veggie dish do you add to your Thanksgiving meal? I would love to hear about in the comment section.

LitLift Anywhere

For the month of November I have been working on NaNoWriMo.  I know I won't make the goal because my wrist is not cooperating with me.  I'm still writing because this challenge is helping me work on this story that I wanted to work on since the summer.  I didn't want to write just on one computer.  So I did some research on what would be a good online writing application and I found LitLift.com.  It's a free online novel and story writing application. It has different tools like:
  • Character generator
  • Location generator
  • Title/word generator 
  • Create new settings
  • Create plotlines 
  • Add scene
The two aspect of this site that I really enjoy is first the character page. It helps you develop and achieve a better sense of your character, especially the interview section. It allows you to place the character as a major or minor. I also love the fact that I can computer/laptop hop around my home.  You can keep your work private.  You can also export it as a text, rich format and ePub when your ready.  LitLift is easy to sign up for and easy to use. Happy writing everyone!
