So is it possible for an already crazy schedule to get HOLY CATS crazier? In my house it does. Last week and this week are filled with lots of food safety auditing-planning for my families arrival for Thanksgiving-AND finding a few free moments to rest with my sweet hubby. What does all that mean? No new recipe this week. Now don’t look so sad, I believe you may like the alternative.
What I did was compile recipes that would give you some cocktail, appetizer, main dish, and dessert ideas. There is one recipe from a few years ago, BUT I can guarantee the recipe is truly delicious! To start the fun, here are two cocktail recipes that will kick-off your Thanksgiving day in style!
OH WAIT…..I guess I should share breakfast before the cocktails…..unless you want the cocktails for breakfast?
Every Thanksgiving morning my mom had a pan of pecan rolls that did the rising thing while I slept. We devoured that pan of pecan rolls they are that delicious! Did you have a traditional breakfast your family enjoyed every Thanksgiving? Now I didn’t bring pecan rolls, BUT here are a couple ways to make your morning brighter!
Hubby and I are snack freaks….literally! On weekends when we are trying to catch up on sleep, relaxing, and sports of course, we grab several different snacks and just enjoy the moment. So here are a couple pre-dinner snacks to keep your blood sugar up, and smiles on your face. Just don’t fill up on those fun snacks, that dinner in the oven is calling your name.
Now if you didn’t fill up too much on your breakfast, appetizers, or yummy cocktails…WHEW, it is amazing the food consumed on this lovely holiday! Here are a few ideas to compliment your dinner. You may want to wear some comfy pants…ALL day! The recipes I will share next include a family favorite, my Grandma’s ROCKIN’ cranberry relish. There is an award-winning stuffing recipe, I won a kitchenaid mixer for this recipe! AND you always need rolls for dinner.
Now I wish I could say I saved the best for last….BUT I think everything in this round-up looks pretty yummy! So for those with a sweet tooth, here are two unique pie recipes. Each recipe has the traditional love of Thanksgiving, but with a twist!
If you were still trying to find a few recipe ideas, I hope this recipe round-up brings some inspiration! During the few days off, there will be several recipes made, and many that will be blogged about soon!
I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving, and eat lots of course!
