Thanksgiving Dinner

In just a few weeks it will be time for my favorite Holiday in the world! I live for Thanksgiving dinner. It’s always an amazing gathering of my family and loved ones sitting down to a gut busting, delicious meal. That is always followed by watching football and inevitably some naps, ha! I wanted to round up my Thanksgiving dinner staples that I’ve done so far. This list will be growing year after year I’m sure! I’ve divided the dishes into appetizers, main course options, sides and desserts. There are even a couple of fantastic ways to use up those wonderful leftovers!
