Happy Thanksgiving and Chanukah!

Holiday Menus

With Thanksgiving this week, Chanukah next week and Christmas around the corner, there are holiday meals to plan, often company to host and delicious treats to make to bring to family and friends. No matter who is at your table, there are great foods to be had. I have created festive meat, vegetarian and vegan meals, dairy free and diabetic friendly, which can be combined in any way you wish, depending on the needs and tastes of the diners.

Some great tips for Thanksgiving and Chanukah meals and of course, for any special occasion. Links to a list of salads, sides and desserts are given at the bottom. So many healthy meals--no need to put on pounds--eat health and delish at the same time!

Links to recipes are below.

Tomorrow's Flight.jpg

A commercial flight goes through turbulence and then crashes into an unknown time and place, the Cretaceous Era, when humans did not yet exist.  Tomorrow's Flight is not a typical time travel novel, rather the playing with time questions our beliefs of who we are as people, what we would do to survive and how, if the opportunity is given, would we change fate?

Dalton, the youngest plane passenger muses, “There’s so little about this world or time that we understand. And, really, we have no idea where we are.” The other characters and many readers agree.  Martyn Ellington and Steven Stiefel are to be congratulated for writing this fabulous read.
