Since high school I’ve been helping my momma cook Thanksgiving dinner… Of course, I’ve taken on more duties as I’ve gotten older and now I cook almost half of the dishes, including the turkey!
Great Harvest Cranberry-Orange Bread
Green Beans with Turkey Bacon and Balsamic Shallots
green beans, turkey bacon, chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper
Baked Sweet Potatoes
Garlic Mashed Potatoes (momma… she’s famous for these!)
Sweet Potato and Apple Souffle (momma)
fresh cranberries, cranberry juice, fresh squeezed orange juice, orange zest, pumpkin pie spice, agave syrup
Great Harvest stuffing bread, sun-dried tomato chicken sausages, pears, mushrooms, carrots, celery, onion, chicken broth, salt, pepper
Apple Cider Braised Turkey
apple cider, apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, vegetable broth, salt pepper Source
TJ’s Pumpkin Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream
Yellow Birthday Cake with Chocolate Frosting* (momma)
*It’s also my brother’s 18th birthday… Happy birthday younger brother!*
I use recipes as a guide but always make my own additions and swaps… Thankfully, I’ve never ended up with a “dud-dish” and hopefully that holds true this holiday dinner, too!
