I Interrupt the Wedding Posting for a Thanksgiving Post

*though remind me to tell you the story of how my mom wants me to wear a LONG SLEEVE WEDDING DRESS.

This will be my first Thanksgiving cooking. I'm only cooking for R, myself and his mom, but I'm still excited about making my first holiday meal.

I'm making just a turkey breast (I have made this crockpot turkey and stuffing meal before, so I'm just doing that again)

I've never made a cranberry sauce before, so I'm going to go out on a limb and try Pioneer Woman's cranberry/pomegranate sauce

For our veggie I'm going with Real Simple's Orange broccoli. This has been on my "to make" list for awhile so I figured Thanksgiving would be the perfect opportunity. 

For rolls I'm making a recipe that caught my eye in the free trial issue of Food and Wine magazine we got last month. 

Desserts: I'm going with caramel apple crisp cups from the Open Pantry site. I couldn't pass up the apple/caramel combo and R also requested I re-make cranberry apple spice muffins that I made after we went apple picking last month that we both are in LOVE with. 

Anyone else trying out any good recipes this year?

I had something very specific in mind for my wedding shoes and despite a lengthy search, I couldn't find exactly what I wanted. I happen to come across a London-based website that lets you design your own shoes! I designed exactly what I wanted and now I just have to wait 2 months while they make them. SO EXCITED!

I am keeping ALL things attire-related a secret from R (at his request) so I can't post them on my wedding site, but I can post them here! So here is a sneak peak at my shoes!!!!
