You know what today is, right? Only 44 shopping days left ’til Christmas! As if you weren’t stressed enough, trying to figure out where everyone and their +1 is going to sit and then realizing that with each dish broken over the last year, you moved closer and closer to hosting Thanksgiving on paper plates.
Our menu is set! I mean, you know, mostly. I’m always on the look for the next new great side dish. I’m still debating between a classic baked mac & cheese or a fancier one that uses goat cheese.
And after I typed that, I’m not even sure why it’s still up in the air
If you’re still working on yours and need a little inspiration, I’ve pulled together some of our fall favorites and the greatest hits from our holiday menus over the last few years.
