I am pretty excited about Thanksgiving, you guys. The past few years when we have hosted I cheated and ordered pre-made meals from our local grocery store (gasp!). LOL. This year I am going all homemade. Well, except for the pumpkin pies. I plan on making frozen ones and throwing Cool Whip on top. Baby steps, right?!?
Here’s what I came up with.
My shopping list…
Here are the recipes:
Stuffed Turkey Breast wrapped with bacon. Because, well, bacon.
Herbed Mashed Potatoes. You can start these ahead of time on the day before Thanksgiving.
Simple Stuffing with white wine. You can dry the bread cubes and cook the veggies a day in advance.
Green Bean Casserole. A Thanksgiving tradition. I am going with old school canned soup and canned green beans. Don’t judge. 🙂
Pumpkin pie and whipped topping. Straight out of the freezer section. After all of the other recipes I don’t want to think about baking pies. Did you know you can order pumpkin pies online from Amazon? For the low low price of $55 or so. Um, yikes.
