I lost all my food pictures in my great computer meltdown and I don’t want to post a recipe without a picture so I am going to be behind a little. So, today I’ll post my menu for Thanksgiving.
Our family tradition is that everyone gets to have their favorites for the meal ~ no matter how many dishes I have to cook. The funny thing is, it’s pretty much stayed the same for a long time. Every once in awhile I’ll mix in something new but not very often. Some of the recipes are already here on my blog so I’ll link to them, some of them will be coming when I take pictures of them on Thanksgiving, and one of them is a family secret.
I’ll be putting out some nibbles but I haven’t decided on which ones yet and I may put some butternut squash soup in the crockpot.
