Thanksgiving week is here and I can truly say I am so excited and thankful for the week ahead. I love spending Thanksgiving at home lazily cooking with everyone hanging out in their jammies, playing, spending time together, and watching the parade and dog show.
Since I know that not everyone’s Thanksgiving is enjoyed relaxing, I thought I’d share some tips to help you plan ahead and ease the stress of the cooking and holiday shopping during your time off.
The link below is my go-to recipe for make ahead mashed potatoes. I call them mashed potatoes, but they are actually better than a traditional mashed potato in my personal opinion. In this recipe I usually substitute diced chives for the paprika and find a way to balance a little heavy whipping cream in too. You can make them ahead and refrigerate for up to 2 days before you need to bake and serve them and they taste delicious either way. Since I don’t serve a lot on Thanksgiving day, I divide mine up into 2-3 smaller casseroles so that our “leftover” meals get a fresh batch of potatoes.

We have one menu on the calendar for this week. It makes me laugh a little at myself that it’s a delicious Mexican meal, I think I was going for a complete departure from anything that might resemble Thanksgiving fare. Thanks for your Support and we wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
