The season's upon us, it's that time of year...

Brandy and eggnog, there's plenty of cheer...

If you didn't immediately recognize that line, then check out The Season's Upon Us by Dropkick Murphys. I guarantee it will become your new favorite holiday song, I know it always brings a smile to my face when I contemplate the holiday season.

We're going to ramp things up a bit for the next few months and add a Friday food post that will be running through December. Now that I'm over my cold I will finally be finishing up the Chili Buffet posts I started in September and I'm just now beginning to outline what we'll be featuring in the coming months.

This November we'll be helping you round out your Thanksgiving meal with some really special side dish recipes. We all know holiday meals aren't about the main course, but rather it's the side dishes that make it special. Many of these have been favorites in my household for a long time, including my apple pie recipe, which I'm excited to share with you.  

For you shopping fanatics that just aren't content to sit at home in a food coma like I am, I'll be posting something special. We're going to have an updated list of Black Friday and Cyber Monday tea deals. Let me do some of the leg work for you this year, while you work off your food coma from home.

Speaking of tea, Tuesday Tea will continue on as it has been. You can expect reviews on tea from Simple Loose Leaf, Red Leaf Tea, and Little Red Cup Tea Co. 

As you can see, we'll be keeping busy around here, so make sure you check back soon.
