Thanksgiving is right around the corner and it is not too soon to start your preparations. This is a reminder that I have been posting a series of posts that can help you have a stress-free holiday. Please look back over these posts starting November 4 that include tips on menu planning, dish planning and preparation and recipes for all the basic (and not so basic!) Thanksgiving dishes including…

  1. Barbecuing and brining your turkey
  2. Cornbread Chorizo Dressing – This stuff is the BOMB!!!
  3. Sweet Potatoes and Apples – Always a crowd pleaser!!!
  4. Curried Carrot Soup – A delicious, healthy first course
  5. The Joy of Mashed Potatoes!
  6. Green Bean Casserole – Made from scratch with all fresh ingredients! Delish!
  7. Festive Green Salad – Pear, apples and a homemade poppyseed dressing make this a tasty different green salad
  8. Cranberry Salad – This may not be the healthiest salad, but with cranberries, green apples and mini-marshmallows it is so pretty!
  9. Hummus – A light, healthy dip to keep your appetizers light and leave plenty of room for the main meal!
  10. Platte County Pie – Like pie? Like chocolate chip cookies? You’ll love this pie!

I even covered some ideas for your leftovers!

  • Making your own stock from your turkey carcass
  • Layered Thanksgiving Lasagna
