Rauly is now walking!!! She has been successful a few times over the past several days at taking 2-3 steps without falling, however today, she took 5-6 steps without batting an eye and has done it several times over the past few hours. Although she's a bit wobbly after the 5th or 6th step, I think within a few days she'll be doin' it with no help! Here's wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and below this I typed the recipe for the Spinach Bread and 5 Cup salad that I promised a few of you! Hope ya'll enjoy!

Spinach Bread
1 Loaf of French Bread
3/4 C. of Cubed Velveta Cheese
1 Box of Chopped frozen Spinach
1 T. Minced Garlic
1 small chopped onion
1 Stick of Butter

Pre-Heat oven to 350. Cut loaf of bread in half horizontally and open it up. In pan melt butter and onions till well sauted....mix in garlic. In seperate pan cook spinach and then drain. Add spinach to butter mixture and then add velveta cubes till melted completely. Spoon on top of bread till the bread is well covered and bake for 20 minutes. Once cooked, cut vertically in to individual slices and enjoy!!! :)
-If you want to make this before Thanksgiving Day, you can allow the finished product to cool and once completely cooled, wrap it in Aluminum Foil and place in freezer till ready to eat. Simply cook it again in the oven and Bon Apetit!

5 Cup Salad
1 C. of Marshmallows
1 C. of Mandarins (drained)
1 C. of Coconut
1 C. Unsweetened Pineapple (undrained)
1 C. Sour Cream
1 C. chopped Pecans (optional)

Mix all together in bowl and chill. The Pecans are optional but help to add saltiness to the sweetness. This is REALLY good for those of you who need a break from the typical chocolate desserts.

Lindsey, these recipes sound great! Can't wait to try them both.... :-)
I'm so glad y'all will be here for Thanksgiving--it's going to be a great time! I'm thinking we need to set up the volleyball net outside and have a tournament.
See you soon!

Thanks so much for the recipes. I will definitely try them over the holidays. Hope you, Chad and the kids have a great, safe Thanksgiving.

Ok ladies (and men if you're reading this!) - I've already started cooking for the holidays! Today I made 2 loaves of the Spinach Bread and I put them in the freezer so that holiday cooking won't be quite so hectic the day of. Let me tell you - the spinach bread looks and tastes wonderful and the best part is that it only took 10 before I stuck it in the oven. SO EASY!! I highly recommend this if you're looking for something yummy and new to bring to your holiday table!
