Traditional Thanksgiving Menu, Pottery Barn Alpine Toile Salad Plate, Friends and Family Napkin Ring, Friendsgiving Table Decor, Juliska Berry and Thread Dinner PlateI am keeping it short and sweet today because we are celebrating my middle daughters birthday!  We love a Traditional Thanksgiving Menu at my house.  My menu is below with recipe links and a shopping list for all you’ll need.  The key to making Thanksgiving more relaxing for everyone (especially the cook) is to be prepared well in advance.  Thanksgiving prep as already begun at my house with Angel rolls being made and frozen, pie crusts ready to go in the refrigerator and my Spiced Ginger Orange Cranberry Sauce being made tomorrow.  It’s even more amazing after the flavors have time to meld together!

SHOP THE POST

Our Traditional Thanksgiving Menu:

Smoked Turkey – See below for ordering info.  You can still receive on by Wednesday if you are in Texas!

Spiced Orange Cranberry Sauce

Traditional Cornbread Dressing with Gravy (I’m starting with Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Dressing and adding celery, onion and my own spices.)

Brown Sugar and Bacon Wrapped Greenbeans

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Alyne’s Angel Rolls

Marshmallow Fruit Salad

Coconut Macaroon Hot Fruit Compote

Salted Caramel Apple Crisp (The secret ingredient is pumpkin pie mix!  This is a great alternative for those who don’t like pumpkin pie)

Turkey:  I get mine from Greenburg Turkey in Tyler, Texas.  They ship right to your door.  These make great gifts as well.  Greenbury makes the best smoked turkey, hands down.  Figure about 1 lb. per person.  If you order today, you can still get it in time for Thanksgiving.   903-595-0725 or gobblegobble.com.”
