THANKSGIVING MENU

THANKSGIVING MENU

To me, Thanksgiving is about tradition.  It is the ultimate comfort food meal, and I crave the classics. While it may be fun to experiment with a new hors d'oeuvres, salad, or side dish, I always want simple and delicious food for the core meal.  Here is my classic Thanksgiving menu.  The menu items that have links to my recipes are in blue.  I'm including four five hors d'oeuvres options but three items is usually adequate, so pick and choose your favorites.
