Oh. My. Gosh.
So many things to talk about!
First, did everyone gobble til you wobble yesterday?! So. Much. Food.
I am thankful, though, for the abundance of food, and time spent with family. Definitely feeling blessed right now. I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving!
In the meantime, in case you haven’t noticed, we’ll be celebrating Fiesta Friday #200 next week. Wowza, right?! We’ve been partying nonstop for 200 consecutive weeks. Is there a special name for the 200th celebration? ?
I wanted to do something special to celebrate the momentous occasion, but what should we do? It falls during that precious time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, when everyone is super busy.
Do we really want to introduce something in the mix? If so, what do we do? Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated!
And last but not least, are you all using Tailwind, the Pinterest scheduling app? I just started myself, and I have to say I’m loving it so far. I’m thinking we should form our own tribe. You know, the Fiesta Friday Friends Tribe. I think it’ll be fun, what do you think?
Let me know, friends, let me know.
Now I have some shopping to do!
Apple Cranberry Almond Pie from Jenny @ Jenny is Baking
“I am all about apple desserts this time of the year and fortunately for us Jenny shared her non-traditional version of an apple pie. From the perfect trio of pie ingredients to the rose decorated pie crust (directions for making the roses are included) and sugared cranberries this pie looks so special. It’s on my “to make” list for sure, especially those rose decorations.” —- Judi
“I just have to second Judi on this. Just look at that pie! IMPRESSIVE!” —- Angie
Sausage Stuffed Honey Buns from Jess @ Cooking Is My Sport
“The sausage twist in these bun elevates it into savory.” — Liz
Cherry Pistachio Mini Cheese Balls from Mara @ Put On Your Cake Pants
“Appetizers are high on my list when entertaining and Mara’s mini cheese balls couldn’t be easier. Lots of great flavor in the two cheeses and dried cherries filling, then coated in chopped pistachios. Small pretzel sticks are inserted in each ball for easier handling and certainly easier eating. I can’t wait to make these during the holidays – Christmas colors too!” —- Judi
Brussels Sprouts Bulgur Wheat Tuna Salad from Monika @ Everyday Healthy Recipes
“It’s a new way to serve Brussels sprouts, shaved in a salad!” — Liz

I was featured, yay! Thanks so much! I would love to celebrate the 200th linkup with you, however, I don’t know how either 🙁
Yay, I was very happy to feature that gorgeous pie! In the past, we’ve had a 2-week event/party with a theme and there’d be a panel of judges that would choose features, but last time it happened after New Year, when the holiday busyness is over.
Elaine @ foodbod says
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you had a wonderful day ???
I haven’t heard of Tailwind, I’ll have to look it up, thank you for the tip off xx
Thanks, Elaine! Had too much food, therefore I overslept, that’s why this post was late. Oh well… Yes, look it up. I think you’ll like Tailwind. They’ll let you try it for free.
Beautiful table Angie – looks like you made all kinds of goodies! Just looked up Tailwind – I am on Pinterest but no app for scheduling. Sounds like fun – a tribe huh? I will be back later this weekend and look/comment on all the great posts that are shared – looks like it’s going to be another great week 🙂
Thanks, Judi! Tailwind is not free beyond a certain number of pins, though. That’s the only drawback. But ever since I started I definitely see an uptick on the number of followers, repins, referrals, etc. Have a wonderful weekend shopping or maybe decorating? My Christmas tree will be up today! ? Thanks for cohosting another week! ??
Debbie Spivey says
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!! 😀
Thanks, Debbie, and the same to you! ?
Hello, Angie! I am glad to know that you enjoyed Thanksgiving and your Christmas tree will be up today – so exciting!??? I was also thinking of FF#200, but can’t think of any theme?
Haven’t heard of the Tailwind app – need to check it out coz it really sounds fun! Happy Fiesta Friday, Angie and enjoy your weekend!?
Thanks, Jhuls! Even though we’ll be traveling this Christmas, we still must have the tree and the decorations up ? Definitely go check out Tailwind and try it out for free and let me know what you think ?
Laura @ Feast Wisely says
Congrats Angie on reaching (well almost) 200 posts! What a milestone – would be great to see some more themed weeks perhaps?
Thanks, Laura! I was thinking about the same thing, but maybe I’ll postpone the celebration til after Christmas/New Year when everyone is less busy ?
Lovely Thanksgiving, and so many wonderful main dishes, I didn’t even get to dessert! Took some food home with me, to eat soon. (Headed off to another Thanksgiving in about three hours.)
Oh, nice! Two Thanksgivings in one weekend ? I’ll be going to 2/3 Christmas parties this year. Already the thought of buying all the presents is making me break out in hives , lol
It sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving! The 200th Fiesta Friday is amazing! You have created something unique and absolutely lovely! Maybe we can all share something that the other bloggers about ourselves along with the food? Am saying this as I am terrible at sharing and it would be so interesting, is there anything you would like to know about us at all? 🙂 Just a thought xx
Thanks, Petra! If it wasn’t for Fiesta Friday, I’d probably have stopped blogging a long time ago. It’s the one thing that keeps me going! Great suggestion you have here, but I think we’ll wait to celebrate after the holidays are over. It’s busy time for a lot of people, myself included. On the plus side, it’s also a time when I’m forced to make lots of cookies!! ?
I am so glad you haven’t stopped blogging! And it is such a great place to hang out.
After the holidays is probably a lot better, maybe ask for the new years resolution! 🙂
I never bake cookies but I should! In between making hot sauce of course ha ha xx
Kat (The Baking Explorer) says
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you had a wonderful one 😀
Thanks, Kat! We did manage to have a good time, even though we ate too much ?
Hi, I’ve been away since Friday so haven’t joined in with a new recipe this time, but thank you for featuring my salad recipe:) Glad to hear you had a great Thanksgiving. Will come back next Friday:)
Thanks and you’re welcome! We so need salads right now ? See you Friday!
