AND 14 Thanksgiving Sides to add to your Thanksgiving Menu!
Hi, Friends! Happiest of Sundays!! Did you turn back the clocks?
True story. This one time I forgot to change the time and because of that, I was the first one to arrive at Church. I drove over an hour to get to Church only to find an empty parking lot and closed Church doors. For about 15 minutes, I was just standing there trying to convince myself that it was Sunday. I started tracking back, trying to figure out that the night before was Saturday, and that on Friday was the last day of class… I kept going back all the way to the beginning of the week. I really thought I was losing IT. Finally, the maintenance guy showed up and LOL’ed at me.
In other news? Gobble Gobble! Almost!!
Last year AND the year before I posted roundups for Thanksgiving, like, on the day OF, or the day before… However, some people did not like that. I heard about it from a few of my lovely readers and for that reason I am going to start our Thanksgiving Roundup(S) today! HIGH FIVE!!
Honestly? I just want to drool over Brussels Sprouts and ‘Taters. AND Butternut Squash laced with lotsa cheese.
If you are looking for the perfect side dish to add to your Thanksgiving Feast, look no further – this is your list. Just hit print!
