Happy Thanksgiving

While I feel like yesterday was Halloween we are not rapidly approaching Thanksgiving. 

Do you have your menu set yet? I hope so but if you don't here are a few recipes I love! I make these recipes every year because well why should I mess with a good thing?!

 
 I have gotten Thanksgiving down now and I am so proud. I went from making a dry turkey 3 years ago to doing it all on my own and it being amazing if I do say so myself!

So the Turkey is the most important and since Thanksgiving is not the day to be on a diet I use a lot of butter.... because butter is a fat and fat is flavor!
The Stuffing/Dresssing is just as good. I do not stuff my bird with stuffing but if you want to you are more than welcome to!
Potatoes are another must have on Turkey Day... and here are a few options. I tend to do the standard plain mash but all of these would be great. 
 
Or there is always regular mashed potatoes!
Green Bean casserole without using the can of condensed whatever is always good too! Not that I am hating on using the canned stuff I just don't like canned things.. I will save my canned goods for the zombie apocalypse.
Now this is a staple to me and I find it funny since I used to hate cranberries... but these ones have converted me to a cranberry lover!
And well of course Gravy!!! If you use the Turkey recipe from ^ then you gravy is so rich and buttery and delicious!
And don't forget the pie! Mine is a bit different and not traditional but it is my absolute favorite!!!
Or you could do a pecan pie.. that is pretty awesome too!
So are you ready for the big meal.. I think I am!

Stay Crafty
