Good morning! I’ve been scouring cookbooks and cooking magazines and websites over the last couple weeks in anticipation of the “big” meal next week. Of course, we have our tried and true favorite’s at the Barhorst household, but each year I like to throw in something new, something different to put a fresh spin on the meal. This year I’ve been looking how to cut some butter out of the meal, hopefully without compromising taste and so that no one notices! Another idea I have is to use my new favorite bread, The Sprouted Bakehouse’s Seven-Grain Bread, in my stuffing. Everyone seems to love my stuffing, and this bread which is so yummy (I use it everyday for toast) and so low in fat and high in protein I think it will work very nicely. It has lots of texture and will hold up well in stuffing. (I will post that recipe soon as well as my much requested “Crock Pot Oatmeal” which is a necessity for Thanksgiving morning. An easy meal that everyone can serve to themselves and add their toppings of choice and best yet, it’s already made when you wake up that morning :)
So, I’d love to hear what you’re making and what your specialities and tips are for this fast approaching Thanksgiving Holiday. Or, if you need any tips or inspiration, just ask me, I’d love to help! Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite meals to prepare. I love making everyone’s favorites dishes and hearing how they look forward to them each year. This past week I’ve been polling my kids as to what food is absolutely necessary for them. It’s fun to hear what they look forward to :)
Happy Monday and t-minus 9 days until turkey day! Let’s get cooking!
