a very pinterest thanksgiving

November 22, 2011

A couple weeks ago I shared that I will be hosting Thanksgiving at my house for the first time. While my sister and I will be having a fun filled crafternoon today finalizing all of the decor, I am secretly panicking about roasting a turkey for the first time. It is basically like roasting a giant chicken, right? At least that is what I am telling myself.┬áThe turkey, however, has never been my favorite part of the actual meal. Instead I prefer all the delicious sides. This year, keeping with the Pinterest inspired theme, my sisters and I selected side recipes from our favorite “pins” including:

Fleming’s Creamed Corn

Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes

Orange Scented Cranberry Sauce

Ruth’s Chris Sweet Potato Casserole

Plus my mama’s famous super secret stuffing. I. can’t. wait.

What are you making for Thanksgiving?

    It’s super easy coming from someone who made a turkey two years in a row when I wasn’t eating meat. My tip get your fingers lubed up with butter and slide them between the skin and the meat. Feels absolutely disgusting but apparently tastes really good. Good luck Jen, it will be amazing no matter what you do!

    Everything looks so good! And I LOVE creamed corn…usually out of a can but I think I might try this one :)

    Guess who’s making more butternut pancakes for Thanksgiving?? This girl!!

    Have an amazing holiday with your family!
