Thanksgiving Menu Ideas

Posted by on Nov 19, 2011 in Food | 0 comments

For a recipe fiend like myself, the menu planning portion of Thanksgiving is one of my favorite aspects of the holiday. And even though I usually stick to the same classic dishes year after year, I love bookmarking (or pinning) different recipes and telling myself that one day I’ll give them a shot.

I spent my morning finalizing this year’s Thanksgiving menu, and I wanted to share some of the recipes that I found most appealing, just in case you’re in need of some inspiration.
