November Menu

Wohoo, it's November. Before we know it Thanksgiving will be upon us. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do for Thanksgiving this year. I would like to host it but since we live in such a small place, I'm not sure that will work out. I may have a few options though, so I'm crossing my fingers something comes through.

Keeping my hopes high, I went ahead and planned a Thanksgiving menu. I found some fabulous recipes in this month's Bon Appetit magazine that I think will make a great addition. I tried to include more veggies to keep the meal well-balanced and I'm keeping dessert more traditional and simple.

For the rest of the month I tried to keep it simple as well, focusing on things my girls are pretty good at eating.

The first part of this month's menu is a little carry over from what I didn't get to last month. Linked recipes are ones I have made previously and are on my blog. For the rest of the menu items, I will be posting as I make them.
