This is such a crazy time of year, with so much going on. Halloween just ended, next week is the election, and before you know it, Thanksgiving will be here.

Speaking of Halloween, boy did I buy a lot of Halloween candy. But it turns out we didn’t have too many trick or treaters (perhaps because it was a school night?).

Anyway, I didn’t want to have the kids — and frankly my husband and me — eating bags and bags of candy for days and days!

So, I’m going to be donating the extra candy to the troops. If you’re interested in doing the same, there are at least two organizations collecting candy for our military: Operation Gratitude and Soldiers’ Angels.

Thanksgiving Recipe Ideas
I can’t believe it, but Thanksgiving Day is less than three weeks away. I want to make something a little different this year for our dinner/dessert. Could you guys help me out? Please send me your favorite Thanksgiving recipes (send them to [email protected]).

I’ll try to post as many as possible so that other NCP panelists can also try out your recipes!

Get Out And Vote!
One last thing: Next Tuesday is Election Day. Let’s be honest, many people are not thrilled with the choices for President. But the thing is, we are so fortunate to be able to vote. So, please exercise that right and pick whomever you believe will do the best job for the country.

Thank you, and have a great weekend!
