This week was Canadian Thanksgiving. I am neither Canadian nor do I live in Canada,…
My Thanksgiving Table
I love hosting Thanksgiving dinner and have done so for many years. I’ve hosted for 3 people and for 30 people and for everything in between. Sometimes I’ve done all the cooking and others I shared the load. I’ve hosted at my place or someone else’s. And, I’ve done all the possible menus…. full traditional southern, gluten free, paleo & AIP. Once, I even made a Thanksgiving dinner for 1, complete with all the sides. There’s just something about planning a menu and setting the perfect table and spending time with friends and family over a comfort food feast. I mean that’s really what Thanksgiving is all about, right?
- Spiced Apple Cider
- Cranberry Mocktail – cranberry juice & sparkling water
If you’re still overwhelmed with the thought of Thanksgiving, may I recommend the new “Aip Holiday: They Won’t Know it’s Paleo” ebook from Bre’anna of “He Won’t Know it’s Paleo.” Click here for a full review of the book. Or, get your hands on the brand new “Aip & Paleo Holiday Sweet Treats” cookbook that’s full of delicious holiday goodies.
