Thanksgiving Favorites

If you have been following my blog for some time, you’ve heard me talk about hosting Thanksgiving for both of our immediate families every year. This year, I am aiming to do Thanksgiving on a Budget, as we definitely splurged last year. Even though, I am trying to keep our spending to a minimum, it doesn’t mean that we are compromising our food ethics or the robust flavor of a traditional meal. It simply means that the dishes that I plan to prepare are made up of hard working, organic ingredients that happen to cost less and go further.

If you are still stumped on what to prepare for the big meal, check out the posts that I made last year leading up to our big Thanksgiving feast. I made a special post highlighting each recipe, a printable PDF with all of the recipes, a shopping list and a complete Thanksgiving game plan (that breaks up all of the recipes into simple steps that can be completed starting today to minimize your Thanksgiving day prep).

The following are the recipes that I will be serving on Thanksgiving this year. Stop back later this week and I will give you a peek into our Thanksgiving shopping budget along with a revamped list of Thanksgiving leftover ideas.

Spicy and Smoky Turkey Rub
Roast Turkey with Herby Gravy

Spiced Cranberry and Apple Sauce

Cherry, Apple and Mushroom Stuffing

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Pecans

Vanilla Bean Pumpkin Spiced Pie with Coconut Whipped Cream

In addition to these items, my mom is bringing roasted butternut squash and my mother-in-law is bringing an apple pie and steamed asparagus.
