Thanksgiving Recipe Round Up

Jump to Recipe

Last night was one of my favorite nights of the year.

Wanna know why?!?

It’s because it was Friendsgiving!!!

Friendsgiving is basically the best thing ever.

We have 2 of our best friends in town visiting for a few days. They are here for residency interviews post med school, so I decided the right thing to do was to celebrate Friendsgiving with them after a long day of interviews.

I kind of even love it more than actual Thanksgiving since there isn’t as much pressure and it gives you a great chance to try out some fun new recipes before the big day. I’ll be sharing all of those recipes, plus more in the next 2 weeks leading up to the big day!

But in the mean time, I know that some of you are already starting to outline what you’ll be making on the big day and I wanted to make your lives easier. I mean if your anything like me, you’ll have your grocery list done, bullet pointed, printed and ready to go a week prior to the actual Thanksgiving day! So let’s dive right in shall we?

I’ve got boat loads of great recipes for you to choose from! Take your pic from different appetizers, veggie side dishes, potato dishes, main courses and of course dessert!

  1. They all look wonderful. I am going to use the Roasted Rosemary Turkey recipe. YUM! I am in love with sweet potatoes. I know that you can sub them into any recipe for regular potatoes but I would love to know any Thanksgiving inspired recipes you have for sweet potatoes.

  2. You just made me so hungry. I’ve been thinking of nothing but Thanksgiving for weeks now. Is that wrong? But here are some inspiring dishes—thanks for sharing.
