Plan Your Thanksgiving Menu
Thanksgiving is just 5 days away. Do you have your menu planned? One of my favorite things about the holidays is menu planning! I’m a big fan of trying new recipes that I might not consider at other times throughout the year. On the other hand, my family prefers old favorites. So, the menu usually ends up being a combination of both.
