I might be too late with this post but for those of you who like to procrastinate (like I do) and wait until the last minute to plan stuff like giant family gatherings that involve hours upon hours of cooking, here’s some recipes that hopefully will help you with your planning for this Thanksgiving week!
Herbed Turkey Breast – For those of you who have a smaller group to feed and don’t want to go for the entire bird, here’s a delicious recipe that involves just the breast!
Succulent Roast Goose from Mark’s Daily Apple – If you DO have a crowd to feed – get crazy and go for the Goose! My dear friend Mark Sisson has this recipe on his site and it looks so darn amazing that I might go goosey myself this Holiday Season!
Everyday Paleo Stuffing – You can also find this stuffing recipe in my Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook! This stuffing is a hit anytime of year but especially for the Holidays and with the crunch of the almonds, savory sausage, fresh herbs, and sweet/tart cranberries – this stuffing can be a meal all on its own!
Cranberry Sauce and Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Gratin – Two delicious side dishes – the Sweet Potato Gratin is a MUST. You’ll thank me later I promise.
Holiday Brussels Sprouts and Garlic Roasted Sweet Potatoes – I made both of these recipes back in 2011 and I continue to make them both every year since! These Brussels are so so so good!!
Spiced and Spiked Slow-Cooked Cider from Rubies and Radishes – Sometimes you need a little motivation to get through all that cooking, and I think this lovely drink that I found over at Rubies and Radishes is sure to do the trick!
Paleo Thanksgiving Leftover Sandwich from Stupid Easy Paleo – What do you do with those leftovers? Well, you eat them but you can eat them in this amazingly inspired way that I found over at the Stupid Easy Paleo blog. YUM!!
PIE!! Pumpkin and Apple PIE!! – There isn’t Thanksgiving without pie and the last few weeks Rowan and Jaden have both been randomly shouting out PIE in anticipation of the fact that we are going to make some EPIC pies this week.
We unintentionally had a very Fragoso Thanksgiving at my home this year! We had a small holiday with just my husband and I and our three young children. I knew I would be doing all the cooking myself and wanted a simple dinner that wouldn’t stress me out and we ALL would enjoy. It wasn’t until we were beginning our Thanksgiving dinner that I realized I prepared stuffed dates from your first book, Herbed turkey breast from your website and threw in the cranberry sauce as well because it looked so simple (and DANG it was awesome. Loved that it wasn’t so sweet and easy to make), and pumpkin pie from your second book! I also added some mashed russet potatoes with gravy and bacon wrapped asparagus, and of course our traditional turkey sculpture made entirely of fruits, veggies and toothpicks. It was so easy to do, everyone loved it. Thank you so much for helping us out! All the best!
That’s so cool Rebecca!! I hope you have a wonderful and restful weekend and I would LOVE to see a pic of your turkey sculpture – it sounds amazing!!! 🙂
