Are you as excited as I am about Thanksgiving? Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Here’s why: You get to have all the warm fuzzy family feelings without the stress of buying gifts! You get to spend the day with the people you love and eat delicious food. What’s not to be thankful for.
This Thanksgiving is special for my family. This year we are combining our Thanksgiving feast with a birthday party for my Grandpa. Did I mention it’s his 100th birthday? Yep. Pretty crazy, eh? That doesn’t happen every day. All of his descendants are gathering to celebrate his amazing life and longevity (Which is kind of a lot of people.)
Do you have anything special happening for you this Thanksgiving? My neighbor is cooking Thanksgiving at her house for the first time (and freaking out a little at the prospect.)
I thought it would be fun to share some recipes that you can use for your Thanksgiving feast. It’s always fun to hear about other family’s standard dishes. And I think it’s fun to try something new to add to the stand-bys.
Last week I shared with you how to cut a butternut squash and I told you it was for a reason. Well here it is! A butternut squash recipe that I love! It’s different than many squash recipes that just add brown sugar. It has an earthy flavor and the ginger brings out the natural sweetness in the squash.
It would go perfectly with Thanksgiving dinner!
What dishes do you always include with your Thanksgiving meal? I’d love to hear all about your traditions!
