I totally have Christmas on the brain, but I am trying to not get ahead of myself and totally forget about Thanksgiving. I love this holiday. I love thinking about al that I am thankful for and why we celebrate it. The food isn't that bad either!
This year we will be staying home and going to my in-laws for Thanksgiving dinner. Originally my parents were going to come to town but things have changed and they are unable to come now. I have never cooked a thanksgiving meal before. I am glad that I don't have to do it this year, it just seems super overwhelming and a lot of pressure. I however, will help my MIL with the meal any way that I can.
It seems like lately whenever I need a recipe or want something to cook I turn to pinterest. I have a cabinet full of cookbooks that I love, but it's just easier to hit the search feature on pinterest and find any and all things I'm wanting. So I decided to put together a list of different recipes that I would like to cook, if I were to have Thanksgiving at my house. (Which, again, I'm so glad I am not!)
Roasted Brussels Sprouts - I don't care for brussels sprouts but these look yummy. I love cranberries and balsamic so I bet these would be delish!
Cheesy Corn Casserole- Corn is not something that we had at Thanksgiving growing up. However, I find it totally underrated and this casserole looks amazing!
Sweet Potato Casserole - This is a Thanksgiving staple in our family. I love that the topping has marshmallows and a nut topping.
Perfect Turkey Gravy - I would have no idea how to make gravy so this would definitely be a recipe I turn to!
Best Thanksgiving Turkey
- The thing that intimidates me most about cooking my own Thanksgiving is the turkey..it seems like so much pressure. Is it over cooked, under cooked, too dry? I get stressed just thinking about it!
Stuffing- The stuffing (or dressing as I've always called it!) is one of my favorite foods at Thanksgiving.
Apple Pie - I know the traditional dessert at Thanksgiving is pumpkin pie, but I can't stand it. So I'm sharing an apple pie. Serve it warm with ice cream, yum!
These are just a few of the amazing recipes that you can find on pinterest. What are your Thanksgiving plans? Will you be cooking the whole meal at your house, taking a dish to family, or sharing a meal with friends? Do you have a favorite dish, I'd love to hear all about it!
