Thanks so much for reading my Thanksgiving 101 Series. I hope you’ve found some good ideas for making the big day easier.
So, we’ve discussed the Turkey, the Gravy, the Mashed Potatoes and the Dressing – so the basics are set. We’ve also discussed some logistics for making the day/week go smoothly. Today I’ve got lots of other dishes to help round out the meal — nibbles ,a beverage, soups, sides and dessert. Now, don’t think you have to do it all. Asking others to bring a dish helps them feel a part-of ( and helps lower the stress for you.) Remember that if you’re relaxed and enjoy yourself, your guests will too!
You’re about to serve a huge feast, so no need for heavy appetizers. A little nibble is just right.
Hot Apple Cider is a welcome treat at Thanksgiving. Serve as is, or alongside a bottle of cheer for an adult beverage.
Two different takes on classic Thanksgiving ingredients – pumpkin and squash.
You can’t have Thanksgiving without cranberry relish . This Cranberry Apricot Relish is great on Friday’s sandwiches, too.
Classic Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts – kicked up a notch.
Two Pumpkin Desserts to end the meal…. and of course one has chocolate!
