Ahhh, Thanksgiving … A glorious day in the year that we associate with the feast of all feasts. I love spending the day with my family and reflecting on all the things that I am thankful for, but also I really love the food. The thought of those warm smells wafting out of the kitchen and flooding the whole house is enough to bring me to pre-Thanksgiving-tears-of-joy status. After a long morning of cooking and finally sitting down and devouring a loaded plate, I quickly drift into that unavoidable sleepy state. Feel me? I know you do!

The best part of Thanksgiving is the leftovers. With leftovers, you have another chance to wake up and relive Thanksgiving the next day. Keep reading to see some of our favorite go-to recipes for how to use your leftover turkey to its fullest potential

When traveling to big cities, the lodging can be eco-unfriendly and costly. Hotels never turn off the lights, make extra breakfast food in the morning (just in case) and wash linens that were never touched during the night. After you consider hotels’ carbon footprints and the money you spend on gas, food and tour fees while visiting a new place, you feel like you need a vacation after your vacation. Nevertheless, our minds naturally turn to America’s largest metropoles when we think of taking a peaceful road trip, knowing that they provide us with great food, shelter and sites to see.

Each big city in the USA is a great starting point for your next vacation, but you should keep going if you want to experience a little more than a concrete jungle. Here is a list of glamping spots that go easier on the Earth and your wallet than the typical hotel room

Companies Doing Good on Black Friday

You’re probably well-aware of the phenomenon referred to as Black Friday, the post-Thanksgiving day that’s full of sales to get you in that Christmas spirit. I remember participating in Black Friday once when I was about 13 years old. At that time, it was exciting just to enter the mall at 7 am on that shopping-filled Friday. Today, Black Friday is quite a bit different. Stores started opening their doors earlier and earlier over the years and now are opening them as early as 6 pm on Thanksgiving. Yup, you heard me! Department stores are ready for shoppers before you’ve had time to give thanks and digest your turkey! Although this shopping tradition doesn’t seem to be dwindling down, we can at least take a moment to honor the companies that are doing good as soon as the doors open
