Lambert and Shelton on Thanksgiving hunt

Miranda Lambert

Miranda Lambert is spending Thanksgiving getting "back to basics" with her husband Blake Shelton.

The country music love birds took to Twitter to express their mutual appreciation for each other over the annual American holiday.

Miranda posted a photograph of her embracing the great outdoors by hunting for her own Thanksgiving feast.

Taken during an expedition in the Oklahoma woods, Miranda tagged herself in a snap that shows her in a camouflage outfit, and holding a bow and binoculars.

"Baby it's time we got back to the basics of love... first time in the woods this season. & with BS," Miranda tweeted to her husband Blake.

Earlier in the week, Blake praised his wife's survival instincts. The star explained how his wife has a hidden talent for finding food.

"I'll tell you, we went huntin' a few nights ago and she actually caught a wild hog with a bow and arrow," Blake told People."Miranda is the real deal. She doesn't just sing about guns and things like that. She does it. She's a big bow hunter. People don't know that about her. It's so impressive to see this hot girl walking out of the house with this bow and arrow and shooting things with it, I love it. I hope that's what we do again on Thanksgiving."

Other celebrities have also revealed their secret skills as the Thanksgiving weekend begins.

Superstar singer Mariah Carey might not seem like a typical domestic goddess, but her husband Nick Cannon insists she is a natural in the kitchen. Nick praised his wife's culinary talents and explained she'll be in charge of food this Thanksgiving.

"Of course [she'll be cooking this Thanksgiving] So many things!" Nick told the New York Daily News. "Black-eyed peas and pecan pie!"

Other stars have gushed about the secret ingredients they use to create their Thanksgiving dishes. Delicious twists on the traditional turkey roast meal with trimmings have been offered up in their droves.

"I go crazy with stuffing!" Jennie Garth confessed to Us Weekly magazine. "I add celery, pecans and sliced water chestnuts for a nice crunch."

Glee actress Dianna Agron likes her vegetables with an added zing.

"I make my roasted sweet potatoes with rosemary and a little lemon zest to give them a kick!" Dianna giggled to the publication.

Tori Spelling addressed fans on her official blog with a heartfelt message about the American day of celebration.

"From my family to yours, I wanted to wish each and every one of you a happy, healthy, safe and delicious Thanksgiving," Tori gushed."Take this time to savour your loved ones, indulge in all of your fave Thanksgiving staples (and maybe try some new ones this year) and take stock in of all the things that you are grateful for."

Kourtney Kardashian marked the holiday by posting a photograph of Marilyn Monroe 'hunting' for her dinner.

"I hope you are all having a relaxing holiday at home with your family and friends, and are of course indulging in some delicious Thanksgiving treats… How fab is this shot of Marilyn out turkey hunting. So classic!" she wrote on her official website.

Beyoncé Knowles also sent a special message to fans, wishing them and their loved ones a "healthy and happy" Thanksgiving.

Leo:

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
