Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up: The Turkey

Thanksgiving Round Up

I LOVE Thanksgiving!  I know….there is a huge irony in that, being British and loving Thanksgiving! 

I love it for the time with family and friends, it’s a chance to get together with those you love from near and far and celebrate and be thankful.  We all have so much to be thankful for, whether it has been a wonderful year or a difficult one – if we think for just a moment we can think of a hundred little things to be thankful for.

I love that each family has their traditions.  I have been blessed to experience many different family traditions, especially as my first 5 years here where before I had a family of my own here, so I was always ‘adopted’ by a wonderful family, or friends and made to feel like I was a part of something.  From Pumpkin Pie eaten first thing in the morning, to watching the latest movie release, to everyone round the table sharing what they are thankful for, to playing board games, to going to bed early to get up even earlier to go Black Friday shopping, to not sleeping at all and shopping ’til you drop, to avoiding shopping altogether, to gift giving ‘just because’, to family baking sessions, to putting up Christmas decorations… was all wonderful, and special and unique to that family.

One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving is the food!  I am a foodie….so of course I love it!  I am yet to host my own Thanksgiving…..until we have a larger space we can only sit 4 around our table, and our family is way bigger than that; in the meantime, I am taking inspiration from other amazing chefs and bakers and building up my repertoire.

I searched around the Internet to some of my favorite Food Bloggers and found some of these delectable delights for you Holiday table.  Take some time to salivate over these delicious recipes, and show some love to your favorite ones by clicking on the link and visiting their blog!

I can barely contain my excitement for this Thanksgiving.  

I pray that this Holiday season is a time for us to reflect on all that God has blessed us with, let’s give thanks to Him!

    Wow, Ruth, your round-up looks fabulous! Thank you SO much for including me – I’m very honoured.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I’m in a somewhat similar position to you. I’m Canadian so we’ve already had our Thanksgiving but we’re going to the US to celebrate again with our American cousins. lol
