Wasn't it just yesterday that Christmas was months away?  The local grocery store  HEB shattered that myth with Christmas music resounding from every corner duirng shopping this weekend including the Hallelujah Chorus.

What happend to Thanksgiving?  Did I miss it? 

Oh, Okay it is still November.  Whew!  What a relief. 

The cooler weather should get me moving a little more briskly.  What a relief that  will finally get a break on the electric bill with less air conditioning.

It's time to make that Thanksgiving shopping list this week.  Remember that Turkey needs thawing time.  All the media are talking about different ways to make Turkey, whether to baste the Turkey or whether to stuff the turkey.

My favorite turkey baking method is to use a Reynolds Cooking Bag.  Salt and pepper the turkey, place in the bag and  put in  the oven at 325 and wallah, turkey turns out nice and juciy and moist.    Oh, I make the stuffing in a pan.   

The good news is that all the Thanksgiving favorites - turkey, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, cranberries, and assorted vegetables are all really nutritious and on the World's 100 Healthiest Food List. 

There are several healthy food lists discovered on the Internet.  I don't know how I knew what to eat before! 

Then Tufts University has a list of 51 Healthiest Foods.  Then there is the list of  the 30 Super Foods and the  most nutrient dense foods and it seems Kale tops every list.  One of these days, I am going to have a big bowl of Kale!  That promises to be a blog producing event!

MD Anderson has a list of 41 cancer preventing foods.  That promises to be another upcoming blog. 


In the meantime, I promise turkey dinner is still safe to eat!
