I have to admit something:
I’m a terrible food blogger. While other food bloggers are prepping for Thanksgiving posts in the summer, I’m in full summer mode and simply cannot bring myself to make and photograph a Thanksgiving meal in 96F heat. And, every Thanksgiving, I intend to get great food shots and use them to post *on time* next year. However, every year I get caught in the actual holiday.. cooking, the parade, spending time with friends and family, sipping wine, and honestly: I don’t want to spend an hour getting the perfect shot and eat cold food. (sipping wine and photography don’t mix, either)
I totally get why other bloggers set up for Thanksgiving in July. And, I admire them for that.
One day, I will do Thanksgiving in July. But, today this is what I’ve got: Random shots from Thanksgiving pasts, and an occasional recipe link.
From scratch green bean casserole:
(Although the beans needed to be cooked a bit longer…) And, this year the hubs is making the “traditional” recipe…
If you have a guest that prefers jelled cranberry sauce, cut it using cookie cutters, for a whimsical touch. Cute, huh?
These are great for those that are watching portions
I’m actually making rolls this year, biscuits are just too filling. (sorry Grandma)
I love mini desserts, because you can have one of each and not feel like a glutton.
