The leaves are changing colors, and it is getting colder outside, which means Fall is here! And with Fall comes Thanksgiving and with Thanksgiving comes FOOD!!! Oh, and spending time with loved ones of course.
Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. Heck, everything that involves good food has always been my favorite kind of holidays. Since moving back from Florida in 2005, I have not had the chance to experience a good traditional home cooked Thanksgiving meal. Having been raised in a Haitian home, we take cooking to the max! I mean, yes we get the traditional turkey and stuffing, but think rice, fried pork, macaroni au gratin, just to name a few. Yea, it is that serious. My favorite Thanksgiving would have to be the one in 2004. Which just happen to be the last one I get to spend with my family in Florida. I was young, and I thought I was in love. I had all my family with me and my bestfriend at the time came to spend that special Thanksgiving with us. It was magical. It was delicious. So much good food. Overall an amazing Thanksgiving.I feel awful that my son hasn’t had the chance to experience that wonderful feeling you get when surrounded by 10-15 different aluminum plates filled with amazing food.
My cooking skills is not there yet, but I can still make a mean macaroni au gratin! So this year, I’m giving him his first Thanksgiving meal! That is, minus a few items that I’m willing to pay someone to make for me such as, a pumpkin pie. I may or may not claimed to have slaved over it later when I’m asked about it. I may or may not warm up some scented wax to give off that smells of oven baked pumpkin pie. It just so happened that Scentsy has two great scented wax that will get the job done! One is pumpkin marshmallow and the other is pumpkin roll. The Autumn Glow Shade warmer will go very well with my the Thanksgiving/Fall theme.
So I have one week to come with the perfect Thanksgiving meal, which means hours of hours on cooking sites. Good thing I love foodporn! I also know the perfect place to get my pumpkin pie near my place. Now to order that Autumn Glow warmer in time for Thanksgiving!

My wife loves these waxes. Thanksgiving is full of great smells and these candles make those smells last for much longer. Thank you.

Wow the last time I had Thanksgiving with my entire family was back in 2003. I do miss that time with everyone. I’ve smelled the apple pie scent and its wonderful!

I have heard about these, but have not had the opportunity to sample them.
I love thanksgiving but we have never had a big gathering like yours. I am not sure what scentsy is. Could you explain cause I love different scents.
I’ve always had a lot of people around me growing up! When I moved back to Canada in 2005 we didn’t get to celebrate our usual big Thanksgiving supper for years. Then we got our little guy and we wanted to be sure to give him all the good things that we got growing up! =) Scentsy is a wickless scented candle company! They have over 80+ scents available and every month they come out with a new one! I love candles and used to burn them a lot but when i got Tristan I was always worried he would get into the fire and burn himself or set the house on fire. So I stopped burning candles for some time (unless we have a black out!!) But Last year a friend send me some scentsy to try out and I was sold! I love the fact that it is non-toxic (great for everyone) not flames which means safe!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday as well. We gather at my sister’s house… her children, my children, some relatives and friends. My sister is the official cook. I am her sous chef and I prepare, one kind of stuffing and the apple pie. My daughter makes the delicious brussel sprouts and my son the fantastic mushroom soup. I’m beginning to get hungry already. Hope you have a marvelous Thanksgiving!!
Scentsy sounds like a great product, looking forward to trying it.
