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

Growing up, I would always hear people talk and rave about green bean casserole, but it was something that my grandparents/parents never made for the holidays.  When it came time for me to host my first Thanksgiving, I decided to add this recipe to the menu.  I even decided to take it one step further by adding some bacon!  Yum....  Needless to say, I didn't have ANY leftovers of this dish!  And now it's my Dad's favorite dish.  This will definitely be on our Thanksgiving table this year!
