As October comes to an end, thoughts turn to November which automatically makes me think of all that I am thankful for. I am beginning to plan the items I will make for our family’s Thanksgiving feast and of course I’ve already begun my Christmas shopping. As I think on these upcoming events, I am reminded of how blessed I am. How I have so many loving people in my life. I am reminded how important it is to reach out and show love to someone in need.

Let’s be honest, we all love the actual Thanksgiving feast, but come Saturday or Sunday, who really wants another turkey or ham sandwich while watching football or spending those last minutes with family. Today, I’m going to share one of my favorite chicken salad recipes (of course turkey works too) along with a fun new dinner roll idea.
