Happy Thanksgiving!


When my Christmas cactus starts looking like this, we know that the holidays are quickly approaching. This is the first time though, since we received it as a gift from Montsic and Janet a few years ago, that both colors have bloomed at once like they did then! Maybe that means it's going to be an extra special Christmas? Don't know about you, but I've got lots to do before then!

If you're looking for something different and very tasty to serve on Thanksgiving, here's just the thing: Apple-Cranberry Cake on Jules Speaks Gluten Free . Don't be afraid of the gluten free part; you can substitue wheat flour. In fact, I forgot to add the melted butter, and it still got a "thumbs up" from Dick....and me. It's DELICIOUS! (And easy!) We've taken to eating it at breakfast.

Enjoy! And have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I used to have a Christmas Cactus! I've never seen the white with the red though, that's pretty! Thanks for the link, it looks yummy! We'll be roasting a turkey, watching some football, and just enjoy being together...we do have a lot to be thankful for. :-)
Wishing you and your family a beautiful Thanksgiving!

That is a beautiful Christmas cactus. I think I need to get one this year. My last one was gold.

Maybe I can find a red and white one.

I'm jealous...your Christmas cactus looks so healthy and beautiful.Love the red and white together. Mine did finally bloom (peach-only one blossom and rest fushia), but it's so pitiful...thanks to those darn squirrels or chipmunks!

Now you've gone and made me homesick. LOL. I got that recipe in the e-mail, but I didn't try it. Sent it to my best friend instead. This looks yummy!
