I was walking around the grocery store getting last minute tidbits yesterday and heard some really beautiful instrumental Christmas music! It hit me so fast that we are in the Holiday Season and I am super stoked to have my husband home this year to really start our own traditions. Last year at this time I wasn’t doing so awesome, dealing with a lot of personal anxiety and missing Andrew who was deployed most of the year. I was suddenly aware that time heals and life goes on. I am thankful for my family and friends who got me through. And now, here we are for another amazing season and I couldn’t be in a better place. Wahoo!
Anyway, the Thanksgiving menu! I will be documenting the process and results and letting you know if I completely bomb or not. 😉
-Turkey (13 delicious pounds of meat!) Saving the bones for broth of course.
–Bacon and Chive Sweet Potato Biscuits
-Roasted Turnips (This is my replacement for mashed potatoes which I love so much! But turnips are very similar in texture and tasty, so I really don’t mind.)
–Caramelized Green Beans
–Spiced Cranberry Relish
-Chopped Bacon and Brussel Sprouts
-Beef Celery Apple Walnut Stuffing
–Paleo Pecan Pie
As I said I was on a roll yesterday. A few of the things I made…
