Thanksgiving Recipe Ideas!

Thanksgiving Goodies

I love hosting Thanksgiving and so excited to being hosting again now that we are living near family.  My new dining room table arrived last week.  I bought some new Fall decorations for the table.  Check out photo of table in this previous post.  I'm currently looking at Pinterest for some potential ideas of table setup.   Any ideas? I'll definitely share more photos as we approach closer to the holiday! I would love to hear what your family traditions are for the holiday in the comments

a.k.a.  Supremes De Volaille Aux Champignons I love Julia Child.  She had such high enthusiasm with food and loved using fresh ingredients.  I was beyond excited to receive my first Julia Child cookbooks at my bridal shower a few years ago from one of my friends.  (Thank you Maureen!!) This particular recipe is in Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume 1.

I love Chex Mix.  I prefer it over Potato Chips any day.  Plus, there are so many varieties to buy in the stores now from Sweet to Savory.  However, have you noticed the prices lately?  If it's not on sale, you could be paying up to $3.99 for a small bag.  YIKES!  With that said, I haven't had Chex Mix in a while. It never crossed my mind that I could attempt making Chex Mix from scratch until our friend Julie introduced us to her homemade version during the holidays.  It's soooo good!

Tacos are definitely a regular dinner rotation for us each week.  We usually alternate between chicken or ground beef.  Over the years, I have always bought those seasoning "packets" from the store.  However, have you ever looked at the back of the packet?  There is a lot of sodium and unhealthy preservatives.  Especially lately, I have been trying to eat "clean."  Honestly, I have noticed a big difference over the last few weeks in just how I feel. (And I have even lost a few pounds!)

I'm a huge fan of seafood.  White fish especially, but I also love shrimp - even more so if it's encrusted in coconut! :)  I typically only order fish when we are out at a nice restaurant, unless of course, we are in Hawaii and I'm eating it everyday for dinner!  Boy, do I miss Hawaii....
