1 Sneak Tart-Sweet Cranberries Into Your Favorite Recipes!

Bags of antioxidant-packed whole cranberries are flooding supermarkets right now and they make a delicious addition to many desserts and breakfast treats.  Simply roll a handful of berries in granulated sugar (to counteract their tartness) and drop ‘em into brownie batter, muffin mix or pancakes!  Theky’re also scrumptious in seasonal pumpkin loaves and gingerbread.

2 Keep The Kids / Grandkids Occupied with Holiday Origami!


Origami, the Japanese art of paper folding, is back in a big way!  Several new books and kits hit stores this year including ones geared for the holidays.  ‘Thanksgiving Origami’ by Ruth Owen which will keep little hands occupied making paper pilgrims and 3-D turkeys or try ‘Snowflake Origami’ by Jordana Tusman which takes tradition of making paper snowflakes to a whole new level!

3 Watch The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

From 9:00 a.m. to noon ET, tune into NBC to watch as gigantic helium balloons and dazzling floats make their way through the skies and down the streets of New York City!

4 Rent This Good-Mood Movie!

‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ staring Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy and Tom Wilkinson.  It follows a group of friends who travel to India to live in what they were told was a new luxurious exotic resort for retirees.  They arrive to find out the accommodations are in less-than-perfect shape, but the charm of its owner, the country and each other begins to bring them happiness they never expected to experience again.

I did two out of 4 of those, but I didn't choose the movie you suggested, I haven't seen it either. Instead of your two other suggestions, I will... Watch less television and study less. :) -Not much for recipes and I have no children in the house. ;)
