    Where were all these fantastik ideas when I was planning my meal over the past month? The Green bean recipe was changed to yours, not that mine was not good( not the usual green bean casserole either), but this seems refreshing and a great addition to celebrate with. Nice table decor!

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
