Thanksgiving Recipe Round-up

Hey friends! Can you believe Thanksgiving is in just a few days?! I feel like the holiday season came so quickly this year. Maybe it’s because it was almost 80 degrees until a few weeks ago down here in Virginia, but it seriously crept up on me. Our Thanksgiving is going to be very small, with just myself, Jarrett, and my sister, who is driving in from Charleston.

Despite not having the usual crowd around the Thanksgiving table, I am excited to prepare a few appetizers, sides, and of course, the turkey! I’m planning on halving most of the recipes, but definitely making turkey and gravy, mashed potatoes, macaroni & cheese, cranberry relish, brussel sprouts, glazed carrots, and biscuits. Jarrett and Elli said no to stuffing in favor of mac & cheese. How do you feel about that? Any sides you always have? I’m excited to try out a few new recipes and have rounded up a handful for appetizers, sides, and desserts! If you’re interested in more recipes, check out my Pinterest here. I am always pinning, and you’ll find boards on home decor, Christmas, and skincare, with tons in between!

I hope you find a recipe that will be perfect for your holiday gathering! What food do you traditionally have at your family’s Thanksgiving? Let me know in the comments below.
