How was your Thanksgiving! I hope you spent it with people you love and people who love you! For me, next to spending time with loved ones, the second most important thing about Thanksgiving has to be...
I'm gonna lay out my favorite Thanksgiving dishes that my family cooks every year:
1. Baked Macaroni and Cheese
No Thanksgiving is complete without the baked mac and cheese. It's probably my favorite dish that my grandma makes (I help add the cheese).
Ok, scratch that... My grandma's gumbo is hands-down my favorite Thanksgiving dish, and my favorite dish ever! I'm from New Orleans, so I have no shame. I just wish you could taste my grandma's gumbo...Here's a picture of it:
Obviously, Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without that bird! My grandma cooks it perfectly every year (knock on wood). I don't know how she does it!
I can easily enjoy Thanksgiving with just these three foods on my plate. I'm telling you, you haven't LIVED. Hey, maybe you can come to New Orleans with me one Thanksgiving.. 😉 Happy holidays!
