One week peoples. We are down to ONE WEEK. Yeah!!!! okay let me just answer a few questions first blue kitty there will be a truck maybe a van and a suv there is also going to be another 2 cars. So yeah, I think we got that part covered.



Okay COOKIE SALAD is a real recipe, my children love it. No this is not a family recipe and no there is no secret.

1cup buttermilk
1pkg instant vanilla pudding
(mix these two together)
*do not use regular milk*
then add:
1(8oz tub) of cool whip
about 10 ribbon chocolate cookies(the striped ones)crushed
*have used chocolate chip cookie, not as good, you probably could use vanilla waffers, never tried them so who knows. Use them at your own risk.
Let that stand a few minutes, just long enough for the pudding mixture to stiffen

Then add:
2 cans (drained) mandarin oranges
1 29oz can (drained) fruit cocktail

once you have stirred it all up then sprinkle some cookies on the top and refrigerate.
This salad can be prepared two days in advance. Don't worry if cookies get soggy there suppose to.

I love this salad, found it in some magazine. Since then We eat it for either thanksgiving or christmas.

Also this is an extremely easy recipe, if you need more double the recipe, this year I am going to quadrupple the recipe. So we have plenty of leftovers MMMMMMM!!!

But what if your adrenalin is already rushing? I am not just excited about BF, okay I am extremely excited, but I am also excited for Thanksgiving. My parents moved up here from UT this summer and it has been five yrs since I got to have Thanksgiving with them so I am excited to be able to spend it with them. So I think I will be lack of sleep until after the holiday(that includes BF).

We don't have a Meijer's... we probably won't leave the house until 4.30am-ish. I'm not brave enough to hit Bestbuy early so we'll head to the tamer stores before lining up for Sears or Mervyn's.
