Roasted Butternut Squash, Carrots and a Giveaway!!

Thanksgiving is here and I figured I am just in time to share these last minute recipes with you. Even though my menu is not yet finalized, I am not worried because this year we are sharing responsibilities in the kitchen.

For example, my hubby is in charge of the mashed potatoes, this is a big deal since he is not fan of cooking, he rather believe that he is sitting at a judge table of a cooking contest, tasting every single dish, but it's ok, he always comes out with the best reviews. My two cousins are helping too. One is in charge of the appetizer and the other one is in charge of a side dish. I am in control of the turkey. I plan to do it simple. Basically, I will rub it with herb butter and garlic under the skin and roast it low and slow for a couple of hours. And Lucas? Well, I guess he will be our judge this year.

And just because I love you and I want to say thank you for your support, I am hosting a giveaway! It's a beautiful dress from Shabby Apple. Hey, we need to be pretty for the holidays, right?
