This coming Friday, I’ll be hosting my first ever Thanksgiving dinner at the Running Around Normal household! Granted, it will just be four or five people, but I’m still so excited!
This morning’s task was to create a menu. For the past hour, I’ve been searching recipes, blogs, and magazine for a simple, yet creative Thanksgiving menu. The guests I’ll be serving are pretty traditional and not too fancy (in a good way!!) so I tried to keep a back-to-basics mindset while working.
And I think I’ve got it!
Paige and Shane’s Thanksgiving Menu 2010
Spiced mixed nuts (pre dinner snacking)
Veggies and hummus (pre dinner snacking)
Stovetop. Sh! Don’t judge me!
Turkey (Organic and Amish)
Fresh Market Apple pie w/ vanilla bean ice cream
Have you ever hosted Thanksgiving at your house?
*crosses fingers nothing gets burned – including the house!!!*
On the actual Thanksgiving Day, we’re going to my aunt’s house. She always makes the most delicious feast, so this year, I’ll have a glimpse of what she goes through every single year! To help her out, I plan to bake this apple pie:
and perhaps a pumpkin pie
and then also these portabella lasagna rollups as a vegetarian main course (and a carnivore side dish)
Do you bring a side dish or dessert where you eat Thanksgiving? If so, what are you bringing this year?
On that note, I’m off to go for a run, take a yoga class, and then help out with a shower.
Happy Thanksgiving week, everyone!
Before I go, Shane and I wanted to take a minute to share with you all a skit we made for the holidays:
