THANKSGIVING SIDE DISHES
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and is one of my most favorite holidays! Today I am sharing a delicious Thanksgiving Side Dish! It is so nice to have a holiday that is all about family and food. At our house we also try to put a big emphasis on things we are grateful for. It is nice to reflect on just how blessed we really are.
And the food isn’t bad either! We usually have our standard dishes that are a must have on our Thanksgiving Table…but there are always a few new Thanksgiving Side Dishes that I like to try every year just in case we find something so delicious, it has to become a Thanksgiving staple.
My husband and I love Roasted Vegetables so I decided to give this Butternut Squash, Brussel Sprouts and Pecan Salad a test run. You guys…it was delicious! My husband asked me when I was going to be making it again. Most of my kids would eat it…and only one threw a little bit of a fit…ha! She will grow to love it…some day…but she is a pretty picky eater.
I am not hosting Thanksgiving this year, but I already know that I will be making this Side Dish as my contribution to our Thanksgiving Dinner. I am also the official Apple Pie maker in my family. So I am always the one who brings the Apple Pie to our dinner each year.
