I had no clue I would one day be married to a "gringo" and live in the USA... I am very blessed to be now part of his family and to be still learning so much from his aunts! Especially Auntie Sally who even shared some of her very special secrets with me (and... due to her trust... those very secrets will remain safe with me... Sorry... I am not in liberty to share!) But don't worry... I will still share awesome and simple recipes that will make your Thanksgiving Dinner a total success!
So... last year... with hubby's aunts help (by e-mail because we moved to Texas and they are all in Wisconsin) I tried to "replicate" their Thanksgiving dinner and keep it as traditional and authentic as if it was them making it... Of course had to adapt some things to our taste and likings (I am sorry... this will sound unforgivable but we don't include sweet potatoes in our Thanksgiving Dinner... we are just not into them!) so today... I will just share the Menu that I used on everybody's places -right on top of their plate- last year!
You will see it's nothing too fancy and hopefully nothing will sound too complicated, I am mostly trying to encourage those who are going to be in charge of hosting their first Thanksgiving and let them know it's ok!!! It's not as hard as it seems... Especially when you just focus on keeping a Thanksgiving attitude and enjoying instead of looking for perfection which might only stress you out!
So... Here is the Menu I used...

What do you think? Do you like the idea? Everybody here loved it! Hopefully it will inspire you to make your very own and have everybody drooling over "what's to come"
By the way... are you ready for tomorrow's Coffee Friday? Don't forget to link up with us... you just need to have mentioned "coffee" or "cafe" in any of your posts of the week and make sure you link back to us!
BTW... I am linking this up to The Sits Girls for their "Fall Back into Blogging" Challenge... I think of this as a "craft" ... kind of... right? So... there it is!
