I always find it funny when childhood favorites come back in style and become popular again, whether it’s toys or clothes. My Little Pony’s to Cabbage Patch Dolls and so many other fun toys… if only I knew they’d become popular again, I could’ve saved mine! I half wish the temperature/color changing clothing would come back. I had one of those sweatshirts and it was kind of fun. I know my kids would get a kick out of that.

Of course in this case, it’s Where’s Waldo books. I still have mine from when I was little. They’re well loved and showing their age, torn pages and all. My kids love them. I was sure that there weren’t new ones… I should’ve known better. There are a bunch of new books! I feel like I need to get them all because it’s hours of fun… or torture, depending on how you look at it… trying to find a man in a sea of people and random scenes. I’m thinking the Santa Spectacular edition is a must buy, especially since Christmas is right around the corner.

Gravy is an essential item at the Thanksgiving dinner table. I like to change things up and try new versions just for fun and let me tell you… this one is definitely fun and packed full of Fall flavor!

Not only is this a super quick and simple gravy, requiring not a drop of turkey drippings, but you can also very easily make this vegetarian by swapping out the chicken broth for vegetable broth!

Want to save even more time on the big day? Make this ahead and reheat just before meal time!
