Garlic Roasted Potatoes

Omg you guys! We have so much to talk about today. First, Happy Monday!!

A: How on earth is it already November?

B: Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Being the obsessively organized person I am, I have already planned my entire menu. (I did it in September) It’s going to be epic, and I’ll be sharing all the recipes here, well before the big day, so you have plenty of time to plan your menu too!

C: One of my all-time favorite people, Ree from The Pioneer Woman, just came out with her latest cookbook and I spent the entire weekend drooling over every recipe. It’s called The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays: 140 Step-by-Step Recipes for Simple, Scrumptious Celebrations and I’ve decided that I’m inviting myself over to her house for every holiday from here on out. Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day, Easter… you name it… all of her holiday menus are out of this world!

The Pioneer Woman Cookbook

D: In honor of Ree’s gorgeous new book, she is offering up  3 signed copies!! Boooyah! We’re kicking off Monday with a bang.

E: I made a batch of her Garlic Roasted Potatoes yesterday and proceeded to fight my husband over who got the last bite. They are game changers – that is for sure!

F: If you haven’t already ordered yourself a copy, you absolutely should!! Like I said, this book is LOADED with fantastic holiday recipes for an entire calendar year, and each page is infused with Ree’s bubbly personality and humor. I’d like to jump right in and live somewhere between Christmas and 4 of July!

  1. Having my whole family under one roof – children and grandchildren, plus everyone pitching in to make a fabulous Thanksgiving meal. My twin grand daughters have just begun eating solid food, so I am looking forward to giving them a little taste of mashed potatoes and, their mother’s favorite – squash. 🙂

  2. I get to go home to NY and see my brother, sisters and my Mom. Its so much fun cooking a holiday meal with your family.

  3. This will be the first Thanksgiving that my husband and I will cook for ourselves. As much as I love my extended family I’m looking forward to this intimate time with my hunk.

  4. Sitting at the table with my kids and g-kids is the best thing about Thanksgiving, but doing the cooking is a very close second!!

  5. I will have just had surgery this year, so I am looking forward to my family cooking Thanksgiving dinner for me! Oh….and stuffing!!

  6. I love the excuse to actually cook at my friends house recipes I wouldn’t do for myself… to select, buy and bring all the ingredients. Fun time to be together with friends who love and appreciate good food.

  7. I’m looking forward to cooking a fabulous meal for my entire family and just taking time out to enjoy being with each other. We are so busy that we can only seem to get everyone together on the holidays. Thanksgiving is my holiday to host and I am rarely traditional in the food I prepare. I like to try out new recipes and my family loves the surprise factor. It’s going to be another great year!!

  8. Family. I love my family dearly. My parents, siblings & their kids. But also just the whole feast itself! Turkey..yummy (with gravy!), cream corn casserole and the French onion green beans dish hit the spot!

  9. Gaby, I am thankful for all of the recipe ideas and inspiration you have given me this year! I am looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner at my house with my family. I will be starting some of my own food traditions this year: out with the old green bean casserole and in with roasted garlic Brussels sprouts! Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving this year.

  10. I’m really excited that my oldest daughter and her fiancee will be with us for Thanksgiving this year and then they’ll be getting married a few days later.

  11. I am grateful to have been invited by a friend to share Thanksgiving this year with her as my husband is working, so I won’t be alone. 🙂 Yeah friends!

  12. I’m looking forward to a quiet and calm Thanksgiving this year! Usually we spend it with 15+ people. This year it’s just my family of three!

  13. Looking forward to be off work and cook deliscious food for my family. I love Thanksgiving and usually just do homemade mashed potatoes,,,but gonna make these too. (trying them tonight also) Thanks so much <3
    I also am cooking for a local homeless shelter, and sure they will love this dish!! Thanks so much!
