Thanksgiving Dinner 2021

November 26, 2021

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m still very full and very thankful over here! We hosted a dinner indoors for the first time in almost two years! Last year, Thanksgiving was a lot of work, between going back and forth from the kitchen to the yard,, but also living in a construction zone. This year, the house is getting closer to done, and we had three guests inside thanks to a couple of PCR tests and a few rapids! It was a lovely night full of some delicious food! Details on our feast below!

Pomegranate Cosmo Fizz by Savory Online-This cocktail was very pretty and very delicous! I separated the juice mix for my girls, topping it off with some sparkling water!

Endive with Gorgonzola and Hot Honey by Food Network Magazine-Perhaps one of my favorite dishes of the night! This starter is light, but rich, making for a perfect start to the evening!

Easy Roasted Turkey by Real Simple-I made this turkey last year! It is just too easy and very delicious! My brother, who never chooses turkey as his favorite, picked this as the star and begged for seconds today!

Make-Ahead White Wine Gravy by Savory Online-I don’t think I will ever make my gravy the day of again! Way too easy.

Classic Stuffing with Sage by Savory Online-So easy. A hit with all. I usually prefer a hint of wine in my stuffing, but it was fine without!

Make-Ahead Boursin Mashed Potatoes by Savory Online-Wow, another make-ahead HIT! Is anything better than Boursin?

Sweet Potato Casserole with Bacon Crumble by Food Network-This was my husband’s favorite. It’s really good, but almost sweet enough to be in the dessert category!

Homemade Dinner Rolls by Savory Online-Yes, it was a very Savory Online Thanksgiving! I was really impressed with everything. Homemade dinner rolls are such an impressive touch to a big, hearty meal!

Smoky-Spicy Cranberry Sauce by Savory Online-So, this was a pass. It was fine, just not in the “make again” pile. I actually love spicy cranberry sauce, but I prefer the flavor to be from jalapeños!

Pumpkin-Praline Pie by Cooking Light-First of all, I didn’t make it light because I used full-fat evaporated milk. Oops. This was a really tasty pie. A little too similar to the sweet potato side, but really good!

Coconut-Lime-Crumble Blueberry Pie by Martha Stewart Living-This was probably my least favorite of the day. It was edible, but a little too tart for my liking. Just definitely not one I would make again.

In addition to these, I served a family recipe for Curried Cauliflower, and my dad brought over his famous pumpkin bread. I’m still soaking up all the leftovers and very happy to have another Thanksgiving dinner on the books!! Enjoy the recipes!
