2020 Thanksgiving Menu and Guide
Are you putting the final touches on your Thanksgiving menu?  The big day is just 3 days away!  Just in case you’ve noticed a few menu gaps you’d like to fill, are looking for ways to get those last minute requests on the table or are just lacking inspiration,  I am sharing our 2020 Thanksgiving holiday menu!

I shared this menu last week with Southern Discourse subscribers in our weekly Monday Menu email.  And we had a great time talking about our Thanksgiving favorites!  No matter who’s coming to dinner, we all agreed.  The full meal is in order and the most should be made of every celebration.  We all have so much to be thankful for!

In creating this year’s menu, I really tried to create a meal that revolved around holiday classics, as well as, some of our personal favorites.  In short, all of the dishes and recipes that everyone’s been looking forward to!  If I had to describe it, I would say “comforting, welcoming, with a few special extras thrown in”  is what this year’s Thanksgiving is all about!

I hope you find a little last minute inspiration here, if that’s what you’re needing.  These cozy favorites would love to find a welcoming spot on your table!
