Epic Thanksgiving

Epic Thanksgiving - A flavor-packed, chef-inspired Thanksgiving dinner that YOU can make at home! | foxeslovelemons.com

Dear readers – I’m super thankful for you. So, I made you Thanksgiving dinner, in the most flavorful way I know how. It’s pretty epic, if I do say so myself. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be bringing you all of the recipes and details about our holiday meal (schedule below).

Before I get to it, a few notes. Yes, there are “only” five dishes + a cocktail here. My actual Thanksgiving dinner usually has between seven and ten different dishes, including salads, rolls, etc. I consider these five recipes + the cocktail to be the bare minimum for an epic Thanksgiving. As the holiday approaches, I’ll likely add other small side dishes, so I wanted to keep my options open. Also, you’ll notice there’s no dessert here – I outsource dessert by ordering pies from a great local bakery. Hey, you can’t do everything!

  1. Beautiful photos and post!

  2. This was a great intro.  I must say I am also thankful … In that you found your passion in something that allows me to taste test your incredible creations.  Kudos to a job well done.  Can’t wait to see the other Epic Thanksgiving posts! 

  3. I bought the turkey today so that one I am going to make for sure. Was planning on a celery root mashed potatoes but finding some good celery root in out local store is a problem , your cedar recipe will be my back up. Excited to see you sauteed green bean recipe because I would never have thought about paring them with tomatoes. 

    • Sounds like your Thanksgiving menu is shaping up, Gertie! Love the idea of celery root mashed potatoes. I hope your store is able to get some celery root in for you before the holiday, because it sure is tasty!
