Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s almost here!  Are you ready?  I’m going to share some of my favorite Thanksgiving-ish recipes.  But first I have to tell you what I am thankful for!

I am thankful for my family!  My amazing husband and daughter fill my life with such joy!  My parents and in-laws give me so much advice and inspiration.  And all of my siblings help to add to the wonderful chaos that is my life!

I am thankful that all of my family survived the Joplin tornado and they are even stronger than before!  I am also thankful and incredibly proud of my hometown and all the progress that has been made there in just a few short months.

I am thankful for all the opportunities I have had to travel the globe and all of the trips to come.  It is through exploring this world and exposing myself to different cultures that I am able to grow as a person, sister, wife, mother and friend.

And of course, I am thankful for food!  I am thankful for the ability to afford food to eat everyday.  I am thankful for the skills (some still on a learning curve) to cook healthy and wholesome food for my family.  I am thankful for all of you who read this blog and keep me inspired with your comments and thoughts.

Now, onto the feast!

Try starting your Thanksgiving morning off with a Cranberry Smoothie.

Roasted Chicken

This is my favorite basic recipe for roasting poultry.  Double the ingredients if roasting a turkey.

Vegetarian Roast

Sweet Potato Casserole 

Butternut Squash Soup

Baby’s First Thanksgiving

For those of you that have a new baby.

And don’t let that leftover turkey go to waste.  Try these leftover turkey Quesadillas.

Happy Thanksgiving!
