10 Thanksgiving Menu Ideas

Each Thanksgiving I try to change it up a bit. I stick with the basic sides but often give them a new twist.  Here are some of my favorite sites / magazines to look through for ideas. I especially like that they give you full menu layouts. With so many options out there it can be overwhelming to put a menu together that you feel works well. I find it easier to use menus such as these as guides for my Thanksgiving meal.

I have followed this Herbes de Provence Roast Turkey recipe for years. I’ve added a few of my own basic elements over time, but this is a great recipe on it’s own.

  1. Fantastic all the ideas. I am writting from Spain, and althought we do not celebrate thanksgiving, it is a celebration I find most interesting.

    I am a blogger from Spain (Madrid). I´ll take this opportunity to invite you to visit my own blog. This week I am hosting a raffle of a book I wrote myself (in Spanish): “Chef Junior y el libro de las recetas con cuento” (available in Amazon). It is a book of recipes and tales for children. It is very easy, I invite you to visit my blog and leave a comment:
