So I had a little request from lovely Alex of Strawberry Lemonade to do a little roundup of my Thanksgiving pasts/ideas. My mom always hosts Thanksgiving, so most of the weight of the day is on her. She rocks. She’s traditional. She makes a wonderful spread!
For our Thanksgiving, I bring a sweet potato dish topped with pecans & a HUGE batch creamed spinach to the party. I’ve never blogged the recipes to either one (which kinda shocks me!) Maybe I should….
The past few years I’ve made a fluffy pumpkin tiramisu for dessert, but it usually never gets finished cuz everyone in my family stuffs themselves all day long and never saves room for dessert! I hate that! It tastes good, but it has a shelf life!
If you are looking for some Thanksgiving ideas, I’ve compiled a few!
If you are on appetizer duty,
Make a Sundried Tomato Goat Cheese Log!
If you are in charge of stuffing,
Make an Italian Sausage & Chard Stuffing!
If you want to make a veggie dish that will create no leftovers,
Make some Brown Sugar Glazed Brussels Sprouts!
Make a tasty side of Baked Artichokes!
If you want to mix up your yearly pumpkin pie…
Make Pumpkin Parfaits!
If you have a Trader Joe’s near by, pick up some gingerbread cake mix and
Also at Trader Joe’s, get their Pumpkin Bread Mix and
Make a loaf of Chewy Oatmeal Pumpkin Bread!
And if you have leftover Pumpkin Puree the next day…
Make Pumpkin Waffles!
Hope this helps, Alex!!! I’ll try to post the sweet potato & creamed spinach dishes as soon as I find the photos from last year on my computer! What are you in charge of this Thanksgiving??!
