What are your normal plans for Thanksgiving? Do you do something different every year or do you stick with going to the same house every year? What about the food? Different or traditional?

For me, I grew up always having Thanksgiving with my mom’s side of the family. We would rotate homes every year. One year Thanksgiving would be at our house and then the next year it would be at my Uncle & Aunts house. But one thing was consistent.

The Food.

We had the same Turkey, same side dishes {green bean casserole, garlic mashed potatoes, crescent rolls, and a salad}, and same desserts. We would stuff our faces and then roll ourselves onto the couch to take a quick nap before the Turkey Day Football Game came on.

I loved those days, made for some great memories. Now that I’ve moved away I long to be with my family again on those special holidays.

Since getting married and not always having family around to celebrate we have to be intentional about planning a day to get to together. Especially now that my brother is married. Sometimes my parents are able to fly in, but my little brother DOES live near us so I always want to try and get together with him on those special holidays. This year we are doing Thanksgiving Dinner early with my brother and his wife.

My brother is he is always up for new recipes, and I love that about him. Sure he likes some of those traditional dishes, like my mom’s Garlic & Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes (and he hates it when I try to healthify it … haha!}, but for the most part he likes trying new things and experimenting in the kitchen.

So today, as a way for me to get prepared for an early Thanksgiving Dinner {and because I want to help out all those Type A planner personalities} I created a rocking roundup for Thanksgiving Recipes. Call it.. A Guide to the Ultimate Thanksgiving Dinner! I hope you enjoy!

It’s the one day of the entire year where it’s acceptable — even encouraged! — to stay in the kitchen and cook and bake all day. A food blogger’s dream, especially when there’s an entire family full of people to do the dishes for me! 😉
