Simple Stress Free Thanksgiving Meal Ideas
Thanksgiving. A time to gather with family, friends, loved ones. To celebrate all that we are thankful for with food, drink and merriment. Turkey and stuffing, mashed potatoes and turnip, gravy and cranberry sauce, green bean casserole and brussel sprouts.
What it’s not about it is getting up at the crack of dawn to stuff a turkey, truss it and get it in the oven early, so that there is enough time to get all the other side dishes cooked. Or slaving away solo over the stove, trying the 7th new recipe for brussel sprouts in the hopes that the family will actually eat this one. And when, as the cook, you finally sit down to eat, after lovingly serving the rest of the family first, your plate is lukewarm. You rush to shovel your food in so fast that you don’t even taste it, because everyone else at the table had a head start, and they’re eagerly awaiting seconds, and dessert.
It doesn’t have to be this way….
