I’m busy thinking about Thanksgiving in Paris having celebrated it a couple weeks ago in all it’s awesome glory. I think I was recovering from a food coma while running an 8K… Bad decision- what? Never!
Thanksgiving is in full swing back at home in Dallas despite a doom inducing snowstorm of a possible 1cm ground coverage. It’s actually colder in Texas than it is in Paris right now. bahahaha!
Are you still looking for a Thanksgiving menu? Check out the menu of our Thanksgiving meal a couple weeks ago. The post contains links to different great recipes as well including a make-ahead gravy recipe and an entirely from scratch green bean casserole.
Also take a look at my Grandmother’s stuffing recipe. We’ve been making it for years and it is delicious.
Compilation of Thanksgiving Recipes/Ideas:
I even found a link on suggestions of what to wear to head the Food-baby bump. Completely serious. haha!
Love this idea from Occasions Online. Skewer cranberries, freeze, and add to a glass of champagne to keep it cold!
Treats for the big day? I stand by the pumpkin pie recipe on the Libby’s Pumpkin Puree can. 🙂 Make it triple easy and throw in a pre-made pie crust by Pillsberry. Blasphemy you say! ok ok- Pies are the way to go for Thanksgiving but you can do other things. I have quite the soft spot for pumpkin…
Maybe a Pumpkin Trifle from Dashing Dish?
A Pumpkin Spice Latte Cheesecake from Pastry Affair is also acceptable. 😀
Love my friend Jen’s idea to make these pie bars from Food & Wine- pumpkin, pecan, or lemon cranberry! Easy to serve to large crowds.
And I’m completely in Love with this cake from Sweetapolita: The Autumn Delight Cake.
Last but not least- what to do if you drop that pumpkin pie? Thank you SousStyle Male Mondays. haha!!! This is for you Tina.
Check out my Thanksgiving~Gobble Gobble Pinterest board for more ideas. I’ll be adding to it throughout the week.
