Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup

21 Nov

Hello, friends! Can you believe Thanksgiving is TOMORROW?!

I had a jam-packed Monday and Tuesday. After all meetings were attended and all presentations were given, I ventured to Whole Foods last night in preparation for tomorrow. The place was hoppin’! Personally, I prefer mid-day grocery trips when I can linger over the 10 varieties of pears and easily access the free samples without being rammed by an unsupervised small child recklessly driving a very full cart or scolded by an old woman for “taking too long” (seriously, these things happened to me). Hey lady, can’t you see I’m trying to choose the perfect pear here??

Anyway, I came home with a random assortment of seasonal fruits and veggies, spices, and baking odds and ends. So if you are like me and still trying decide on the perfect (healthy) side dish to share tomorrow, here is some inspiration from the recipes that made my list.
