Thanksgiving Menu Ideas and Recipes (Pins to Admire and Inspire)
Here's a no-brainer, Turkey. Anyone have a secret to a moist (I hate that word) turkey?
If you have turkey, you must have Gravy:
Another fab accessory to gravy? Mashed Potatoes:
Corn (this one has garlic, butter, and cream cheese!):
Dressing (or "Stuffing" if you are from the North), my fave:
(I have an amazing Sausage Stuffing Recipe that I'll share in December!)
An American Thanksgiving staple, Green Bean Casserole:
Roasted Butternut Squash:
Bread, wonderful bread (I like carbs):
Dessert, which is really the whole point of the meal, if you ask me!
Last year, I had apple cider simmering on the stove all morning while my sis-in-law and I cooked and watched the Macy's parade with the girls:
Add in my Nutella Pumpkin Cheesecake Bread for a morning snack, and you are set!
I don't mind admitting to you that I really really wish that we could stay home for Thanksgiving. Last year was my first time hosting, and I loved it. Travel during the holidays can be expensive and stressful, not to mention adding in the effects of trying to please both sides of your family. So, for now, I'll settle for this virtual menu and maybe start taking notes for next year.
What are you most looking forward to serving (and eating) tomorrow?
