a food post

I am so excited that Thanksgiving is only a couple days away!! I can finally decorate for Christmas this weekend since Eric won't let me "skip" Thanksgiving..... I meeeeean, I can't wait to hangout with family and stuff my face with good food :) Baby Girl is taking up most of the space in my belly so I'm only going to be able to try 1 bite of everything, but it will be worth it! And Eric's family goes all out with their pies. I can't wait to tell you how many they have this year :)
I wanted to share a couple of my very favorite recipes around this time of year! They might be so special because I don't eat them throughout the year? Whatever the reason, I love them and want to share the love :)

First up: a Cheese Ball! Seriously, this is the easiest recipe ever and it tastes oh so amazing! My pregnant taste buds have been drooling at the thought of this for the past month!
Next: Cream Cheese Toffee Dip! I don't know what I need to say about this except.... YUM!
Last: Apple Snicker Salad! This recipe is always a huge hit. But I actually make it year round. It's perfect for bbq's, holiday meals, and any get together! But this is my contribution to Thanksgiving meal and I can't wait to indulge :)

What are your favorite things to eat during the holidays?! (My list is kind of short so I'd love to add to it! Plus there is something so satisfying about talking about goooooood food, ha!)
