My Thanksgiving Meal Plan | Confessions of a Stay-At-Home Mom

My Thanksgiving Meal Plan

Is anyone else feverishly curating, planning and sorting all of the recipes you'll be using on Thanksgiving? My mom is hosting this year, but I'm taking on a bulk of the cooking. Over the past week, I've gotten into several chit-chats about what recipes I'd be using. I think we all look forward to hearing about what other people are doing because we all want some inspiration. It's fun to come across new recipes - and there is no better way to try them out than on a holiday!

I decided to collect them all in one place (which will make it all the more easier to see them on Thanksgiving Day while I am whipping stuff up), and share them in case anyone else is looking for something new and exciting to make.

Apart from the mashed potato recipe and the classic stuffing recipe (see below), all the of the recipes are new to me. I am a big fan of magazines, and most of this year's Thanksgiving recipe inspiration has come from them: Every Day with Rachael Ray and Food Network Magazine

The rest of the dishes are coming from my amazing mother and mother-in-law (and therefore without recipe here in this post). While I'm not posting those recipes (although I do need to add them to my blog!), I'm posting the all of our intended dishes, in case you are looking for overall menu ideas.

Now I just need Tablescape inspiration...
