a side of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is almost here!! 

A day all about family!  We celebrated the Taylor family Thanksgiving over the weekend and my sister gave me this sweet surprise written by my nephew

"I love my aunt and uncle because they take us places" AND he loves our cat!  Awww my heart melted!   I'm so thankful for my sweet nieces and nephew!

Of course, Thanksgiving is all about the food too :)  I'm not sure what I'm looking forward to the most...the green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole or pumpkin pie.  Mmmmmm

In the midst of all of the casseroles and desserts I do try to throw in a few healthy side dishes.  So this year I made Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Butternut Squash with a Dijon Vinaigrette.

I was a little worried my family wouldn't touch brussel sprouts 

But they were gobbled up (see what I did there? Gobble Gobble) 

Get the full recipe here

And, of course, Thanksgiving isn't complete with pumpkin pie

I did my twist on the classic...Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie

You can't go wrong with apple butter and pumpkin pie together!  Get the recipe here

What is your must-have Thanksgiving dish?

Happy Thanksgiving!

I love butternut squash & brussel sprouts, so the two together are a winner in my book. Tks for posting Steph.
