Planning for Thanksgiving dinner and actually preparing the feast can be a bit intimidating, can't it? But it needn't be overwhelming. Here are some ideas to get you going in the right direction.
Today I'm trying to finish my grocery shopping and all the planning for our Thanksgiving feast. I'll start cooking tomorrow! In case you're looking for some good additions for your Thanksgiving dinner, here are some recipes you might enjoy.
I ALWAYS make this Simple Holiday Salad. You won't believe how easy it is--or how delicious!
If you're looking for a side dish that's a little different from the norm, you should try my Baked Apricots. Melt-in-your-mouth good.
One of our holiday traditions is to have these super-easy Sausage Balls. They couldn't be much simpler--just three ingredients! Best of all, you make mix them up the night before and simply bake them in the morning. We have these on Thanksgiving morning and on Christmas morning. (Bonus: kids can wash their hands thoroughly and help you roll the dough into balls. Simply pinch the dough out into the right-size portions and have kids do the rolling!)
I always make a batch of Pumpkin Bread to have on hand throughout the holiday weekend. It makes a super breakfast or snack.
And just in case you're wondering about the best way to cook a turkey, here's my tried-and-true technique! My photos aren't fancy, but they'll illustrate the process step by step.
