As Thanksgiving Week Begins…

It’s here!  Thanksgiving Week – the official buildup to the Super Bowl of all foodie holidays is upon us!  Are you excited or panicked?  Honestly, I’m a little bit of both at the moment.  Just yesterday, after wrestling the toddler down for nap, I finally got about 30 minutes of down time during which I was able to sketch out a rough plan for the big feast.

Have you seen all the recent posts about people doing “practice” Thanksgiving dinners?  Is this really a thing now?  Please tell me it’s not because if it is, well, it’s still not happening at my house.  Seriously, who has time for that?!

And all the planning guides that tell you to begin two weeks in advance?  Also not happening here.  Nope; everything will officially begin today (or tomorrow) with the big grocery shopping trip and we’ll go from there.

But here’s what I really want to know… Are you trying any new dishes this Thanksgiving?  I’ll be keeping some things the same, like the cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, but everything else from the sweet potatoes to the green beans, even the appetizers will be all new this year.

What can I say?  I’m feeling adventurous.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  🙂
