2015 Thanksgiving Menu

ThanksgivingMenu2015_EricaJulson

It’s about that time again…

My favorite day of the year!

The day where it’s totally acceptable to wake up at 6am and immediately start cooking.

The day you get to hang out, swap stories over mulled wine, and play board games on the living room floor.

The day the house smells AMAZING all day, and ends with the best meal of the year.

The one day of the year where the focus is pretty much where it should be: on amazing home cooked food.

This will be the THIRD Thanksgiving I’ve hosted in my LA apartment.

And by now, I have a tried and true system down.

Each year, I try to keep the classics (turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, salad, rolls, cranberry sauce, stuffing, some sort of greens, and of course, pumpkin pie), but change the specific recipes every year.

This keeps it traditional, but with unexpected (and delicious) twists each year.

This year, I thought this year I would share my menu with you.

You can check it out, & pick and choose some delicious recipes that might fit well with your meal 🙂

Be sure to check back in after Thanksgiving & let me know what you made!
