Our Thanksgiving Menu

Thanksgiving recipe post

Okay, so there are only 3 days left till Thanksgiving and I’m going to share some of the recipes that almost always end up our table every year. Since we’re keeping it small this year, just the four of us, I cut our Thanksgiving menu down by a lot.

Let’s talk TURKEY, this one of our favorite recipes for turkey, it’s got bacon, maple syrup, and lots of butter.  Tyler Florence really knows his stuff. Before we cook it though, I usually brine it, and stuff the inside with onion, lemon, carrrots and herbs. 

My love for PAULA DEEN includes this awesome green bean dish she created and this sausage stuffing. YUM!

We can’t forget about the candied sweet potatoes, they’ll go right next to the mashed potatoes and gravy.

And I haven’t even shared what we’re doing for dessert, Pumpkin Cheesecake and my Chocolate Peppermint Cream Pie!

So what are you having for Thanksgiving? Are you going big, or doing it up small like we are?
