TIME TO SAVE IS CYBER MONDAY

What is Cyber Monday you ask?
Is when people who do not want to grab the sale
in person on Black Friday prefer the comfort of their home.
Cyber Monday was created for those in mind.
A Cyber sale in the US of retail stores who promote
exceptional bargain and you get more for your money.
I'm one of those who prefer to shop online to get the sale
than going in person and dealing with mass of people
in not the best attitude they are their to grab and 
they do not care who they take in their way.

Cyber Monday occurs the Monday after Thanksgiving is the online equivalent 
of Black Friday since it has become our lexicon,
Is known for the increase of shoppers than shopper who stand
waiting in person for a deal.

Here are some of the stores I like to shop you might want to consider in getting a sale.

TIPS FOR THE THANKSGIVING HOST


(google image)
Tips for The Thanksgiving Host
Here are some tips that might
help your hostess or yourself
if you took the duty of making
Thanksgiving Dinner.
To put you at ease and at your best
without a sweat.

Plan a menu ahead 
Is good to know what you planning in serving from appetizer to dessert in order
to time your food to perfection and serve at right temperature and time. It also put
you at ease.
I usually make a list and stick to it from decor, place setting and food I'm planning in serving.

Make your side and dessert early
Examples: Pies, Cake, Mash Potatoes, Casserole Dish
Items you could preheat for you could have space for your turkey
and other food items.

Is Okay Not To Serve The Traditional Turkey
Think of what your guest and yourself will enjoy
 Example Cornish Hen, Chicken is a great placement for Turkey.

Do Not Try Out New Recipes The Day of Your Holiday Meal
If you had not try it before do not try the day of your
holiday meal it could be a disaster just play it safe.
Stick to what you know.

Make Drink For All Ages
I had done this drink my guest and family enjoy
here is the link for recipe

Do not forget to look good on your holiday meal just because you cooking
does not mean you cannot get all dress up.
