Thanksgiving RecipesTurkey Trot

I apologize in advance if this catches you off guard but did you know that Thanksgiving is almost here? Yep. I kid you not.

Last night, after I inhaled my 500th peanut butter cup, I took a gander at my calendar, and had a mild panic attack.

Holy tights, Batman! Did you know there are only three legit weeks until Turkey day? I say legit because that Sunday thru Wednesday before Thanksgiving? The kids are out of school. There ain’t nothin’ productive happenin’ in my house…

So it’s time to hit the ground running and start planning the Main Event. Now, full disclosure, I don’t actually make Thanksgiving dinner. I’m more of a backseat driver. My Mother-in-Law is at the wheel and in charge of the cooking. For that, she has my eternal thanks…

However, over the years I have compiled a long list of Thanksgiving recipes from the traditional to the weird and passing into the down right nutty… And, each recipe is delicious in its own right.

If you are looking for something different, or you’re just not sure where to start, take a peek at the following list. And see if it gets you off to the races,

And don’t forget to give our meat department a call to reserve whatever it is you decide on!
