JANE’S Thanksgiving Menu

I do not know about you, but I love fall; not only for the fashion, but also the Holidays! It is a time that family comes together and we can just enjoy each other’s company. One-way in which we do that is by coming together at Thanksgiving. Looking back, I know when I was younger I should have been in the kitchen helping my mom more. It was not until I was grown and living with my now husband, that I tried to make Thanksgiving dinner all by my lonesome. I thought, How hard can it be? Little did I know, that it is quite the undertaking. I never understood why she stared preparing pies and cakes in advance and peeling potatoes, etc. until I made the attempt the night before/the day of. By the time I was finished, I literally called my mother to apologize for not having helped out all those years, although when I think about it, I don’t think she wanted my help. lol.

My mom loves to cook and it is the way that she expresses her love for her family, so I think she likes to prepare these meals alone because: 1. She knows it’s done to her specifications and 2. She knows that she makes all that we like once a year and would not have it any other way. Either way with Thanksgiving right around the corner, I will be helping my mom this year to lighten her load and just have some mother-daughter time, while hopefully learning a  recipe I have been meaning to steal!! Check out our menu below, and let me know what is on yours!
