Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that brings the family together for a night of drinks and tasty food. There's a history behind the holiday, but I won't get to that, because let's be honest, no one cares about it anymore. What we all care about on Thanksgiving is the food. Football is also a big deal on Thanksgiving, but the food is what makes us all happy. Pretty sure everyone is sick and tired of seeing the Detroit Lions lose every year on this day.
As this glorious holiday is inching closer and closer it's time to think about what to make for dinner that night. It can't be boring, but it also can't be obnoxious either. I'm looking at you Epic Meal Time. Let's get into some ideas for appetizers, the main course and dessert.
For appetizers, we'll look at what your favorite criminal, Martha Stewart, has for us.
Here are some sweet potato rounds. Some fried sweet potatoes topped with crumbled cotija cheese and cilantro leaves. Just enough to open up your appetite and ignite those taste buds. Martha Stewart knows her shit.
Next is the main course. Now I know I said let's not get too obnoxious, and this might be for some people, but just give this one a try. The turducken is your hipster friend's new favorite Thanksgiving dish to make. But sometimes... just sometimes, hipsters might be right. Give the turducken a shot. It's insane.
Dessert time. After you've stuffed yourself with the turducken, let's get you stuffed even more, just in case the food coma hasn't kicked in yet. Dessert is the knockout punch of Thanksgiving dinner. You know it's coming, there's nothing you can do about it, so just let it hit you in the face and take it like a man. Here's a decadent cream puff with praline sauce and pecans. Yeah, you're welcome. Now go make them! Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving!
Here are the recipes for each course:
