Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! I LOVE everything about Thanksgiving–the smell of the turkey baking in the oven, watching the parade, cooking, baking, but most of all— spending time with my family.
I love Turkey and ALL of the sides. Oh, the sides!! Seriously, where do you start? There are vegetables, casseroles, dressing, mashed potatoes and fried okra…. Most of the time, my plate is just not large enough to hold everything.
I have put together a collection of 11 Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dishes that you might want to try and possibly add to your collection of recipes. Next to the turkey, the sides make the Thanksgiving meal complete. Bring on the carbs!
Be on the lookout for my chicken and dressing recipe coming soon! It is definitely a family favorite and has been on our Thanksgiving table for at least 30 years!
Holiday cooking can be stressful if you are not prepared in advance for the cooking and decorating. Be sure to check out my post here on how to make your Thanksgiving stress free.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
