What are you thankful for? I’m thankful for Thanksgiving food! I’ve been thinking about this menu for a couple months now and I’m so excited to enjoy the process of making, serving and eating these dishes. Here’s my menu for this Thanksgiving!
- Roast Chicken with Lemon
- Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole (I’ll probably only make 1/4th of this recipe 🙂 )
- Southern Green Beans
- Broccoli and Corn Scallop
- Crescent Rolls
- Arugula Salad with Parmesan Crisps
- Dessert: Derby Pie & Melt In Your Mouth Pumpkin Cookies (they really do!)
We have some fun things planned for Thanksgiving week, so we might not be eating our Thanksgiving meal on November 22nd. Rest assured though, it will be eaten at some point during the month!
I love the quote on the chalkboard above (from my Mom’s house a couple years ago). I want to encourage you to be grateful with not only what you have, but who you have.
Even if you celebrate Thanksgiving with “just” your husband (whether it’s because you do not have children or because your children are with the other side of the family this year), make it special! Set the table, light some candles and linger over your dessert. There’s as much value in a gathering of two as a gathering of twenty.
Who’s ready for Derby pie? I am! 🙂
