In a few short weeks my absolute favorite holiday will be here. I LOVE Thanksgiving. And with Thanksgiving comes a lot of food. I’ve put together a complete Thanksgiving round up to help get you inspired and ready for this special feast.
I love all the yummy and comforting foods we eat. I love the family that comes together without the expectation of gifts to give or to receive. I love the community that is built around the table. I love watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade on TV in the morning and I’m even more excited that my kids are starting to get old enough they can watch and enjoy it as well.
I love that Thanksgiving is also one of the few Holidays that isn’t built around a consumerist ideology, although it makes me sad that more and more stores and businesses are open on Thanksgiving day. I realize that people have to work, I just wish we could save the shopping part of it for Black Friday and the days that follow Thanksgiving, but that’s just my two cents 😉
Thanksgiving is about two and half weeks away and if you haven’t made your menu yet (cough, cough) it’s probably time to get started! While I do have a standard menu that I make or assign to family members to bring to our home for our meal, I have discovered some really yummy looking dishes from around the web that I thought I would put together in one fun round-up to help give you inspiration or to branch out and try some new recipes this year.
