Sweet Indulgences Sunday #32

It's been absolutely wonderful to have the last few days off from work. I've been enjoying my days at home and had a nice Thanksgiving. I hope that all of you did, too. I did not partake in Black Friday shopping although my husband did hit Wal-mart at midnight to buy a new computer since our old one is almost shot!

I've been busy this morning trying to clean house so that I can begin decorating for Christmas. I'm excited about having the house decorated but would love to close my eyes and, magically, it's finished with no effort from me. What a task! I'm already starting to feel the holiday crunch - I really need to carve out some time to write more for the blog, my food column, and my cookbook reviews. I think it's time that I start an editorial calendar to keep me on task for the month.

How does everyone here stay organized? I know some of you post an incredible amount of recipes each week and have other projects going on at the same time. How do you do it all? I'm looking forward to see what you all have in store for the holidays. I know it will be wonderful and inspirational!

Here's the dessert I made for Thanksgiving dinner. I got the recipe from Life as a Lofthouse. It was absolutely delicious and I enjoyed eating the leftovers right out of the dish. I think I'm going to try it with chocolate pudding instead of pumpkin at some point. I loved using the Twinkies as a base.

  5. Great features! I write a list of 5 priorities that I must get accomplished each day and focus on those. And then somehow, everything eventually gets done. Thanks for hosting!

  6. I wanted to let you know about a new site I started where you can list memes & linkies by category. It’s called Link Rink. Check it out: Link Rink

  7. Thanks for hosting, Kim! I linked up what I think is perfect, creamy hot chocolate. Organized? Yeah, I have no less than 7 to-do lists in 7 different locations going at all times. The more of a "grown-up" I become, the harder it is to stay organized.

  8. Kim, thank you for highlighting my bundt cakes! By the way, your Pumpkin Twinkie Dessert looks absolutely irresistible! I love the layers, the ingredients, simply everything about it, yum!
