This post is brought to you by my love of Thanksgiving. Surrounded by family, friends, and delicious food, it’s a holiday filled with love and reminds us to be thankful for all that we have. Of course, it’s turned into a holiday almost all about eating… but who is honestly going to complain about that? Not me!!! Bring on the food! With tons and tons of recipes being thrown at our face (don’t watch Food Network around this time if you dislike Thanksgiving), it makes me think of whether to go the traditional or trendy recipe route.
While trendy recipes sound so fresh and unique, I like to stick to my traditional foods exactly how my mom made them (or better yet, go to my Mom’s for Thanksgiving!!).Like everything, there is a time and place for all things trendy and traditional. For the trendy route – perhaps a nice Friendsgiving, in which you host a Thanksgiving ahead of time purely with friends, is the time to try that Everything Bagel Stuffing with Bacon. For the traditional route – spend this holiday with your family if you’re able or snag the recipes from Grandma and have your own feast.
I’m on team traditional: Give me plain ol’ roasted turkey, green bean casserole made with scary Cream of Mushroom Soup, and stovetop stuffing any day!
