Creamy and cheesy mashed potatoes with garlic, fresh herbs, parmesan cheese and sour cream.

Tomorrow’s the day. You’ve got about 24 hours to get it all done, but all you want to do is chat with me. It’s cool. All I want to do is chat with you, too! Besides, I did the whole bird-and-thanking-thing last week. 

If you remember, just a few days ago I told you that tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day, is the start of the Nativity Fast for us in the Orthodox faith, thus while you’re chomping down on those turkey legs, I’ll be over here inhaling peanuts and raw vegetables. And water.

I can probably have a helping or two of these amazing Garlic Rosemary Mashed Potatoes, except I’ll have to eliminate the butter, the sour cream and the parmesan cheese… Considering all of that, looks like I’ll be having boiled potatoes. HA!

I really hope that most of you are already prepared for tomorrow, and that your menus are done, but I thought it would be totally cool to put together a menu of those things that my family and I had on our early Thanksgiving table last week. I also thought that this menu might help you, or even inspire you while preparing for your big Thanksgiving dinner.

But, before I go on, I just want to tell you that I am very THANKFUL for each and every one of you. I am thankful that you come here day in and day out to read my ramblings, try my recipes, give me feedback and be my friend. Thank you for all your support – there are no words to express my gratitude. Thank you!

Now onto the grub!

  1. No matter when you have Thanksgiving, it’s a delicious meal. One year I made the spread 3 times in 4 months (on Thanksgiving, on Christmas day for my brother and his family visiting from Denmark, and a couple months later when my spouse returned from a deployment).
    I am smitten with the sweet potato cranberry stuffing photo–it looks so lovely!

  2. This would be The perfect Thanksgiving spread! Wow. Thank you for sharing all your scrumptious recipes (and photos!). Can’t wait to see what you have lined up for December. XO
