I love the Thanksgiving meal! From the first Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims all the way to our more modern take on it, Thanksgiving has me smitten. The tradition of enjoying friends and family as we count our blessings over some deliciousness is the perfect gathering. In fact, I love our Thanksgiving fodder so much I secretly wish our guests won’t devour everything so that we can have it for a few more meals. Shhh, don’t tell anyone I said that.
The recipes I’m sharing below will also have you secretly wishing you had leftovers from your Thanksgiving meal. My favorite recipes are the ones that get shared in the end!
