What’s on the Thanksgiving Menu

The Perfect Thanksgiving Menu

Holy Turkey! Thanksgiving is a week away! I’m so so excited to be hosting Thanksgiving this year but I’m also nervous and just hoping and praying that we have enough food and that everyone has a really good time. Deciding on the menu was a big de-stresser. I’m doing a mix of the classics and throwing in some fancy pants dishes here and there. Here’s what I have planned:
