I’ve made a couple of Thanksgiving dinners in the past and I know it can be quite overwhelming. There are so many options. Should you go traditional? Or out of the box? What if someone can’t eat dairy? And another doesn’t like mashed potatoes (crazy person, no offense). It’s enough to make one reach for the wine just to help plan the menu. That is where I hope to help. With less than a week to go, I thought I would share some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes to help those of you that are in charge of the big day. With appetizers, sides and a couple of desserts there’s enough to please just about everyone.
The Main Event:
Have a great weekend!
A cool refreshing drink with green tea, mint, fresh blackberries and homemade lemonade.
A perfectly grilled pork chop topped with a spicy hatch chile pico de gallo.
Earthy cremini mushrooms stuffed with mozzarella, tomatoes and basil and then grilled to perfection.
Grilled chicken with a sticky, sweet hoisin glaze.
Chicken fingers marinated in Parmesan ranch dressing, dredged in Parmesan bread crumbs and baked until golden. Perfect for weeknight meals!
A sweet and salty snack loaded with popcorn, peanut butter cups, marshmallows and graham cereal.
