Thanksgiving Meal planning

We all know that planning a Thanksgiving meal can be so overwhelming! The turkey, stuffing, sides, and oh yes the pie!

We all want to create special memories & preparing the food is only one part of this, but also one of the most important parts.  After all, food is love and it brings everyone together, even that weird Aunt or Uncle. (there’s always one)  With a household filled of family & friends, have yourself A Lil’ Dab of Bourbon , which you will find weaved into every component of this Thanksgiving meal. So, Thanksgiving Day creates that liberating feeling of tossing those diet plans out the window and eating more than you usually do in a full day. It might come back to bite you in a day or two, but today is Thanksgiving, darn it, and unlimited food consumption is the best way to celebrate.

Being that we are only a few days away, it’s time to get things together, the menu planned, shopping done, seating arrangements and table set and I’m here to help you & your family get ready for that lethargic, sleepy feeling we all know so well after filling yourself with food portions which at any other time of year would be ? Am I right?
