    Pumpkin squares sound like a great vehicle for cream cheese frosting 🙂

    Turkey breast is a good alternative to a whole turkey also.

    We are doing Thanksgiving this year for the first time. I have a Big Easy roaster that will take care of the turkey because that 16 inch oven will not hold a bird and my casseroles will be in there. Since the weather in Crystal River Florida will be in the high 70’s I am making a few cold salads. Everyone is taking leftovers home as there is not alot of fridge space. I am very excited to have Thanksgiving on our boat as it is high on my list of things I am thankful for. This year we stayed aboard for one tropical storm and Hurricane Hermine and she proved to be solid and sturdy. We love our boat home and The Boat Galley has been guiding us every step of the way and my cookbook is onboard.
