Thanksgiving Throwback

This Thanksgiving N will be traveling from San Francisco to D.C. and we will be spending Thanksgiving together at our parents place.  While some years our cravings overcome us and the typical turkey dinner just doesn't cut it, so instead we'll go the non-traditional route and come up with a few courses that satisfy our particular cravings.  But, this year we've decided to go the traditional route, but with not quite so many dishes.  We'll be making a roast turkey breast, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole with mushrooms, sweet potatoes and stuffing. Since we're all trying to be a bit healthier we've decided to nix dessert, probably for the best!  

As you all prepare your last minute Thanksgiving dishes, I thought a post with some throwbacks to past Thanksgiving posts would be a nice way to get everyone motivated to head into the kitchen and start cooking this Thanksgiving season.  Take a look at some of what we've tried out in the past:  

2010 - Whole Roast Chicken with an Indian Flair

            Cranberry Pickle
            Country Apple Pie

2011 - How to brine a turkey and why you should do it! 

2012 - Cheesy Red Pepper Jelly Thumbprints

             Brown and Wild Rice Stuffed Acorn Squash
             Thanksgiving Menu

What happened to 2013?? Sorry guys! 

 2014 - N's Green Bean Casserole

             Leftover Turkey?  Make Turkey Enchiladas!



  1. This is great motivation! We aren't doing a traditional meal this year, so I think turkey enchiladas would be the perfect spin :)

  2. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Singapore, but love seeing posts on turkey dishes etc. Happy weekend, dear! xoxo
