Thanksgiving is only a few days away AHHH!

Seriously it’s been creeping up on us so fast! Thanksgiving is almost here and then Christmas will be here before we know it… Are you ready?? I’M NOT!!!!!

I’m still planning my menu for Thanksgiving. I wrote about the sugar free pumpkin pie I’m going to make, we’re obviously doing a turkey, but I’m also going to make a Rutabaga and Apple Casserole.

Here’s the recipe:

• 3 cups peeled sliced rutabaga
• 2 med. apples, sliced
• 1/2 c. Splenda brown sugar, packed
• 3 tbsp. butter
• Salt

Cook rutabaga slices in boiling salted water until just tender; drain. Place half of slices (rutabaga) and half of apple slices in greased 1 quart casserole. Sprinkle with half of brown sugar and dot with half of butter. Sprinkle with salt. Repeat layers. Bake, covered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
4 to 6 servings.

Seriously it’s really good! I know a lot of people are like Rutabaga EWWW, but hubby eats it, and so do the girls, it really is good.

Thankfully I don’t have a ton of people coming for thanksgiving. I don’t need to set out badge lanyards or an id lanyard for people to put their name cards on, it’s just a small dinner. The girls, hubby, myself, along with my parents. That’s it!

So what about you? Are you having a ton of people over? Lots of food?

I'm curious, what exactly does a rutabaga taste like? I've never had one before.

It's actually kind of bitter tasting, which is why you add the brown sugar, and with the apples, YUM!! It brings out a sweetness with it! Try it :)
