Thanksgiving Menu Planning Ideas

Hope y'all have fun plans with family and friends for next week. We're staying in San Francisco and heading up to Marin to spend the holiday with some of my family. I'm so happy we have family in the Bay area because plane tickets back to Ohio are like a million bucks. Not only are we happy to have some family here, but my cousins have the cutest little girl (Estelle) and we get to spend time with her as she grows up. But we sure will miss Ohio this year.

So whether you're hosting the big meal for your family, or just need to bring a dish, I've pulled together some of my favorite recipes for Thanksgiving.

Another great place to find holiday menus in on foood52. Here are a few links (cranberries, dinner party, soups) on their site with great menu ideas. Check out this Brussels Sprout list. Notice a familiar cook on there?
