It’s hard to believe but Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away (eek!). I typically celebrate with family and friends, but I also take the time out to whip up a few things to keep at home as well. I forgo a turkey in favor of a ham or chicken thighs (depends on my mood), but I especially look forward to finding yummy recipes for my sides.
Sides (and appetizers) make your meal; depending on how you grew up, there are certain staples (mac ‘n’ cheese, yams/sweet potatoes, stuffing or dressing) that will always be at the table, and if you’re a “foodie” you’re open to having them different ways . I love modern twists on traditional holiday favorites, so here’s a roundup of 7 easy Thanksgiving recipes to try:
I also love to make cranberry sauce from scratch (it’s SO good and almost too easy to make); you can have it with your meal but also save some for breakfast with a yummy muffin. One year I’ll bite the bullet and actually host a dinner, but for now, I’ll stick to my extras that help me get through the craziness that’s Black Friday without having to spend extra money on food. Ha!
