I was planning on having family and friends over for Thanksgiving Day dinner but the stars and planets did not align. The new kitchen with the double oven and warmer drawer and 5 burner cooktop will not be put to the test on this particular holiday.
However, I love to entertain! I love everything about it! Especially the planning part. So, to appease my own need to plan this holiday dinner I turned to my favorite foodies @ WordPress.
I enjoyed planning this virtual Thanksgiving Menu mostly because there weren’t dietary restrictions or finicky children to plan around. There weren’t vegans, vegetarians or traditionalists that required their own special dish. The menu is all about being open to new ideas. Being a non-conformist without completely abandoning what I love about this particular holiday. The FOOD!
Here are my selections for the perfect Thanksgiving dinner thanks to my favorite WordPress foodies. I am so glad you can’t gain weight from food envy!
