Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I was never a huge Thanksgiving fan, but since we’ve moved to Ohio we’ve taken on preparing Thanksgiving dinner for ourselves so I have a new appreciation for the food of the holiday.
Green bean casserole
Cream of mushroom soup and French-fried onions?! What more can you want? I just have to be sure I don’t eat the remainder of the French-fried onions while I’m waiting for it to cook.
My mom always made these when I was growing up and I love them. Ironically, my mom doesn’t like mushrooms so she always spent time making them, but didn’t eat them. When I was in college my parents came down to Richmond one year to have Thanksgiving at my sister’s apartment and that’s when I took over making the mushrooms. I’ve made them traditionally with breadcrumbs and also with brie and apple.
Garlic mashed potatoes
My husband makes the creamiest, most delicious garlic mashed potatoes. I can’t get enough of them!
Crockpot Mac & Cheese
This is something my husband’s family makes so when it was time to have Thanksgiving for ourselves, I decided to add this recipe. It’s super rich and creamy so a lot isn’t needed, but it’s so good.
This could probably be a dessert, but it’s still pretty delicious. Trader Joe’s has a great mix that’s easy to make.
