I haven’t been as consistent with my Let’s Look posts, but so far this year, I’ve shared:
- Coffee bars (my favorite coffee mugs) in January
- Love languages in February
- The perfect night in for March
- Outdoor organization (I shared my outdoor space) in May
- Meal planning in September
This month’s topic is Thanksgiving Menu.
I think I’ve shared in previous posts, but we are typically with family on Thanksgiving which means I’ve rarely had to do much cooking! Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday because there isn’t the stress of buying presents, the food is delicious, and I love starting my morning with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.
For Thanksgiving, besides seeing family and the great food, I love a good table scape.
My cousin always knocks it out of the park with her holiday decor:
With the 2020 restrictions, last year, we celebrated Thanksgiving with only my brother’s family. So, we didn’t see extended family, but at least we were able to get together with nearby relatives.
My sister-in-law outdid herself as well with the dinner table.
I believe she got the place cards off Etsy, and then everyone had a delicious cookie on their place setting.
The only time I eat the school lunch is when they serve the Thanksgiving menu. It’s always a day to look forward to!
On the big day, we are pretty traditional with our Thanksgiving food:
- Mashed potatoes and gravy
- Green beans or green bean casserole
- Hash brown casserole
- Cornbread casserole
- Mac and cheese
- Sweet potato casserole
- Pumpkin and pecan pie
Last year, we had a friend deep fry the turkey. Then, my sister-in-law and I split up some of the side items. I made sausage dressing for the first time ever, and it was delish.
Pumpkin pie is my favorite fall dessert. I actually plan on making one this weekend! Then, we’ll have one again for Thanksgiving. (Fun fact: I like my pumpkin pie served cold.)
So, that’s a look at our Thanksgiving menu!
Next month’s topic is: favorite traditions. Well, we have many! I can’t wait to share.
What’s your favorite Thanksgiving menu item? I’ve seen this graphic shared before, and I’m definitely more Missouri than Kentucky! #givemeallthecarbs
