7 Days of Thanks 2017: Day 3

My pups are my life, so no matter what holiday there is always holiday puppy treats around the house as well. Here are foods your pups can and can’t have at Thanksgiving!


Can Eat:  

  • Turkey
  • Pure pumpkin
  • Plain yams
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Plain Carrots
  • Plain green beans
  • Plain potatoes
  • Plain cranberries


CAN’T Eat:

  • Alcohol
  • Cooked bones
  • Turkey skin
  • Nuts
  • Grapes or Raisins
  • Onions or Garlic
  • Chocolate
  • Scallions or Chives


Now you can share your feast and still keep your pup safe. What I am thankful for are my pups. I am very honored to have them in my life and to afford them. Every time I come home, they are there so excited to see me and their tails are wagging. It’s the best feeling you could ever experience.


7 Days of Thanks 2017: ​Day 2

Today, I will be making some Chocolate Acorns; they are very easy to make…so let’s get cooking!


  • 1/2 C chocolate chips
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Milk chocolate hersheys kisses
  • Mini nilla wafer’s


  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  2. Melt 1/2 C of chocolate chips. Once melted transfer into a zip lock bag cutting a corner making a tiny hole.
  3. Pipe a small amount of chocolate on the flat side of the wafer and sticking the flat side of the kiss to the cookie
  4. Set them on the lined sheet and once filled place the sheet in the freezer for about 5 minutes to set.
  5. After the five minutes pipe a small amount on the top of the wafer adding a mini chocolate chip.
  6. Place in the freezer for another five minutes and then serve!

These go so fast during Thanksgiving; luckily they are so easy to make. One thing I am thankful for is my job. Although it may drive me insane sometimes, it allows me to put food on the table, go on trips, spoil my family and dogs and put me through college.

In honor of Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fun to do 7 days of Thanks! Now, I do think we should be thankful every day and not just Thanksgiving, I will be posting seven days straight with recipes and reasons why I am thankful this holiday season.


I hope you join in on the fun, let me know why you’re thankful, your favorite holiday dishes and traditions! My favorite tradition is waking up to the smell of food, in my pajamas watching the Thanksgiving day parade with my puppies!
