I have to admit something:
I’m a terrible food blogger. While other food bloggers are prepping for Thanksgiving posts in the summer, I’m in full summer mode and simply cannot bring myself to make and photograph a Thanksgiving meal in 96F heat. And, every Thanksgiving, I intend to get great food shots and use them to post *on time* next year. However, every year I get caught in the actual holiday.. cooking, the parade, spending time with friends and family, sipping wine, and honestly: I don’t want to spend an hour getting the perfect shot and eat cold food. (sipping wine and photography don’t mix, either)
I totally get why other bloggers set up for Thanksgiving in July. And, I admire them for that.
One day, I will do Thanksgiving in July. But, today this is what I’ve got: Random shots from Thanksgiving pasts, and an occasional recipe link.
This was our dinner from last year.. maybe the year before? The gravy was the best I had ever made, and no- I didn’t jot down the recipe as I made it. I’m hoping to have a pen handy this year. 😉
From scratch green bean casserole:
(Although the beans needed to be cooked a bit longer…) And, this year the hubs is making the “traditional” recipe…
If you have a guest that prefers jelled cranberry sauce, cut it using cookie cutters, for a whimsical touch. Cute, huh?
These are great for those that are watching portions
I’m actually making rolls this year, biscuits are just too filling. (sorry Grandma)
The Domestic Mama’s Turkey Brine
See those veggies? Hubby loves them. Keeps him off the turkey, too. (until serving time, of course)
I love mini desserts, because you can have one of each and not feel like a glutton.
Of course, there’s stuffing… I am partial to bread over cornbread and I like to add lots of veggies to it, and no meat. Too much meat going on with the Turkey, anyway.
I hope you and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving!
