It’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving! The biggest food day of the year is just a few weeks away and I’m excited!!
Isn’t that quote the truth?!?! I love Thanksgiving food and I love enjoying the day with my family, but I will not be in the kitchen for 18 hours getting ready. No way!
My tips for Thanksgiving are simple…
1. Buy a cooked turkey or ham from a grocery store or specialty shop
2. Buy good quality rolls
3. Make your (easy) desserts in advance
4. Have casseroles prepped and ready to go before the morning of Thanksgiving
5. Ask your guests to bring something (guests love bringing something to special occasions!)
6. Don’t stress out! Just don’t!
7. Keep things simple
If you click on my Thanksgiving tab or button, you will find all of my Turkey Day treats but here are a few to get you excited about the big day…
Sausage Crescent Breakfast Casserole is the perfect thing to enjoy while watching the parade! Make this the night before and just pop it in the oven on Thanksgiving morning. Enjoy your breakfast while watching the parade in your pjs!
Butterscotch Monkey Bread is another yummy make ahead breakfast to have on Thanksgiving morning. This plus coffee plus the parade on TV and I’m a happy girl!
Sweet Pumpkin Dip is an easy and yummy appetizer for your Thanksgiving Day! And the best part is that you can make it in advance!
Easy Sweet Potato Casserole is just that…easy! We never have a Thanksgiving without this yummy side!
Mushroom Risotto is a great alternative to a boring old rice dish on Thanksgiving Day. It’s also great for the vegetarians in your family.
Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifles are perfect for big holidays because you make them in advance! You can make these up to two days early and then there’s no fuss on Thanksgiving!
Pecan Pie Bundt Cake is like the traditional pie…but in cake form. You’re welcome :).
Pumpkin Butterscotch No Bake Pie is like eating regular pumpkin pie but with a twist! Plus, you don’t bake it. At all. And again, this is made in advance…fabulous!
All month long, we’ll be getting ready for Thanksgiving around here! Grab a pen and paper…it’s time to start making your grocery list!
