The holiday season is practically here. In our house that means Chad works A LOT (thank you to all the Amazon shoppers), plans are being made to celebrate Alec and Alyssa’s birthdays, plans are being made with family that travel to visit, registering to run a Thanksgiving Day race and one of my favorite things, special menus are being created.
I love menu planning for the holidays. The anticipation of family visiting with lots of talking, laughter, wine and good food.
This year I’ve decided our Thanksgiving menu is going to be a combination of traditional family favorites and trying new things. A compromise with the family, a few of their preferred traditional favorites with a few recipes that are likely to show up on our menu during non-holiday times of year.
It all looks so good it’s going to be hard to narrow it down to 2 or 3. Oh, and I realize there are more than 12. I included a few bonus recipes because they looked too good not to.
