Today is LET’S LOOK!
If you don’t know what this is, once a month, Erika and I do a little link up where we “look” at different aspects of our lives (and then if you blog, you share and link up too!). It’s often a random little assortment of topics.
In January, we looked at our coffee bar areas.
In February, we looked at our love languages.
In March, we looked at a perfect night in.
In April, we looked at our fridge and pantry.
In May, we looked at our outdoor organization.
In June, we looked at our summer bucket list.
In July, we looked at our bathroom organization.
In August, we looked at our phone, apps & such.
In September, we looked at meal planning.
In October, we looked at holiday decor storage.
And today, we’re looking at our THANKSGIVING MENU!
Ummmmm…so, I wrote these prompts way back last December and you know what? I’m not quite sure what I was thinking when I wrote this one because…Thanksgiving food isn’t exactly my fave. I mean, I’m obsessed with pie. OBSESSED. It’s my very favorite dessert, but the whole turkey and sides thing doesn’t speak to me. So, it’s funny to me that I wrote the prompt in the first place and even funnier that this year, we decided for the first time ever NOT to have “Thanksgiving” food on Thanksgiving. I AM SO EXCITED!! It wasn’t even my idea, it was Andrew’s. This year, we’re doing Thanksgiving with his family and instead of the traditional stuff, we’re going to eat a yummy breakfast while watching the parade and then we’re going to eat “football” food while watching the NFL.
Is it unconventional? Yes.
Are we crazy? Maybe.
Will it be delicious? ABSOLUETLY!!
So, here’s kind of what I think our menu will look like…
For breakfast, we’ll have my Three Cheese and Sausage Breakfast Casserole.
For a snack, we’ll enjoy a Fall Charcuterie Board.
I think we’ll need an appetizer of some sort, so I might make these (because they’re so dang delish!)…
And maybe I’ll whip up these Bacon Wrapped Smokies too!
For our main course…
… Brisket Chili along with…
I think I’ll do a simple green salad and then maybe my mom’s BBQ Green Beans.
For dessert, we will be having pie!
Make sure you check out my 22 Pie Recipes for Thanksgiving post today too because I have so many easy and delicious options for your Turkey Day!
So, tell me…is this weird? Are you one of those people who look forward to Thanksgiving food all year long and cannot imagine not having it? Or are someone who, like me, would like to change up your Thanksgiving menu? I’m seriously super curious! Please comment and let me know! Either way, tell me one food you’re really excited about enjoying this year!
Next year, we’ll be back with my side of the family who refuses to alter the traditional menu…but this year, I’ll be in chili heaven 😉 .
That’s it for Let’s Look this month!
