Hey y’all! I hope all of you are staying safe and doing well. We are fast approaching Thanksgiving and I personally can’t wait because it is the one holiday with a TON of food and no shame for eating as much as you want. Today I wanted to share an outfit with you guys I’ll probably be wearing some variation of on Thanksgiving…as well as 6 of my favorite recipes that I’ve made and also some of my classic favorites.
I am in love with this pin tuck skort from Southern Local that screams Fall and Thanksgiving with a beautiful rust orange. I am obsessed that you really can’t tell it is a skort until you turn around and look at it from behind. I love that it can be dressed up or kept casual, like how I have it styled. To dress it up, I would put a long sleeve bodysuit with it and some black heels instead off the platform sandal.
This Levi’s denim jacket is such a staple in everything that I wear and my go-to when I am looking to put a colder weather outfit together. I think it looks effortlessly chic and I love that it can be dressed up or down.
Now onto some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes I’ve made over and just some of my favorite classics. I was legit drooling while I was compiling all of these for today’s blog post. On Thanksgiving, there are definitely some things that I run towards to grab and get on my plate.
I know, most people are not the biggest fan of brussel sprouts but making them like this will turn any non-fan into a fan. These make the best vegetable side dish and are packed with really good-for-you ingredients and surprisingly filling.
This is the first thing I put on my plate on Thanksgiving. No joke. My sister and I will compete to see who has the last bite of it. In my opinion, the slow cooker version of green bean casserole is the best way to do it and doesn’t take that many ingredients or maintenance to put this deliciousness together.
I know there are not a ton of cranberry sauce fans out there but I love how simple it is to put together and it just adds another color to your plate. You can make it from scratch or totally get it from the can, whichever is the easiest for you but this recipe is super easy.
Another classic Thanksgiving dish has to be stuffing. There are so many different variations to make this but sometimes you just have to come back to the ‘ole original recipe.
I mean YUMMMM! I’ve been making these for YEARS and legit look forward to them every fall! (The recipe above has pistachios in it but I always leave those out). These cookies are so soft and rich and I love the combo of white chocolate chips with cranberries. Might sound like a strange combo but trust me…you will love!
Can y’all tell I like cookies yet? I made these cookies last year for the first time and LOVED that it’s a cookie I can justify eating at breakfast because it has apples and oatmeal in them! They are sweet and delicious but not too heavy. And really – is there any better combination than apples, oats and cinnamon?!
