Thanksgiving Recipe Round-up

No, this post has nothing to do with Cleo, my beagle.  I just thought that this expression encompassed what we’re all feeling right now, which is excitement about stuffing ourselves silly tomorrow!  Although I think Cleo could do with a little reminder that Thanksgiving isn’t just about eating an obscene amount of food, but about taking time to celebrate all that we have to be thankful for.  Like food, and walks, and soft blankets, and food, and new smells, and walks, and food, and tummy rubs, and animals to bark at, and food.  Let’s just say that Cleo has a tiny bit of an obsession with all edible (and often inedible) objects that come within 100 yards of her hound-dog nose.

I know it’s a little late, but I’ve put together a round-up of recipes that I think would be great for Thanksgiving.  I tried to go with dishes that were a little out of the box and might be fun to add to your menu at the last minute, since I’m assuming most sane people have already planned what they’re cooking!  Regardless of whether you’re hosting dinner at your house, visiting family, or even eating out, it’s never too late to whip up a little something extra to celebrate.  I don’t think it’s possible to have too much food on Thanksgiving!  I hope you all have a happy, safe, and DELICIOUS holiday!
