I do not know of any family that do not cook a BIG old meal on Thanksgiving Day! My first thanksgiving here, hubby’s family had cooked all that stuff that was just so very tasty. I remember wanting some left-overs the following day but hubby’s sister had packed up all and took them to her home (lol)! So ever since that time, I always make sure there is enough for left-overs whenever I host a Thanksgiving dinner. And if we do go someplace else (just for the day) I like to have Turkey and at least some sweet potatoes made for the following days:)
I have put together some of the kinds of meals we make during this time (except the chicken – we usually have turkey). Most of the recipes are my own and can be found right here on the blog. If any recipe takes you to a different link, it is because I have tried it out but the relating photo is mine.
I am not sure about you, but on Thanksgiving Day, I get so consumed with preparing dinner that I find the easiest breakfast out!
As many families, we usually do a turkey for dinner. But obviously, I have not yet made one. If you are not a fan of Turkey and would rather something simpler like chicken, here is a recipe I made:
Green Bean Casserole – I don’t make these often for Thanksgiving but have made them in the past. I usually just go with the a regular simple side of fresh green beans!
Corn Bread – Link and Photo from Better Homes and Gardens (I have made a similar one from the same source but did not use the honey topping)
Quick Bread Rolls from Food.com
And if you have guests coming over, say “Thank You” to them with these thanksgiving cookies with free gift tag printables!

So you have seen some of our recipes we do for Thanksgiving. How about you? Do you or other family members cook BIG?
