Thankful. I have so much…too much. My grown kids are kind, happy and healthy, productive adults. That is everything to me. And my Golden Retriever, Sadie, is a constant love and complete noodge (I love both sides of her; the angel and the devil). I am surrounded by family and friends and always have food on my table and a warm bed. All of that is huge and Thanksgiving reminds me not to take it all for granted and to do what I can to help others to have the same necessities. Food and a warm bed should not be a privilege in a wealthy country such as ours. Unfortunately, that is not the case. If you are feeling like you have more than you need, please think of homeless organizations in your area to donate to. One of my local favorites is West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation.
As to the food I’ve decided not to reinvent the wheel and just show you what Sweet and Crumby has got for the upcoming big holiday. I hope this list gives you inspiration for your Thanksgiving menu.
Next, I have my Roasted Breast of Turkey.This recipe is for those of you who don’t feel like roasting a whole bird but do want some nice, juicy turkey to bite into. It is citrus-y, full of herbs and takes only about an hour and a half in the oven. No getting up at the crack of dawn. 😉
Now can you think of anything better to serve along side your dinner than these fluffy and easy to make Sweet Potato Biscuits?
S&C also has you covered for left-over ideas!
And if you have left-over dinner rolls you can make Coconut Rum Bread Pudding.
Any way you like to celebrate, just make it full of good food, good people and great times. May your Thanksgiving be peaceful, and let us all be thankful for the joys we have, big and small, and for the food at our table and the roof over our heads.
