Mashed potatoes. Cranberry sauce. Apple pie. Who can resist the thought of such mouth-watering cuisine served at Thanksgiving dinner? From now through the day we give thanks, we’ll be featuring a delectable creation inspired by foods found at a fall feast. The best part? You can enjoy these appetizing morsels without worrying about your waistband. Bon appétit!
After a long trip to the mall, your feet can be left screaming for some TLC. (Who ever said shopping wasn’t hard work?) After seeking out the perfect holiday gifts for loved ones, give your swollen tootsies their own holiday treat with a DIY mashed potato foot soak. Why potatoes? They retain heat longer than a traditional foot bath, and they help reduce swelling and soften skin.

- Purchase a box of dehydrated mashed potatoes.
- Once you have your mashed potatoes, add lukewarm or cool water to get the temperature to the right level to soak your feet.
- To make it special, add essential oils before you put your feet in.
- Then indulge feet into one of the best soaks you’ll ever experience!
