My Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Welp, it’s that time of year again.  The time to start mentally preparing yourself for the extra holiday weight you’re going to gain because of the yummy food you’re going to consume.  Well, let me just tell you….I have never ever been this excited for the holidays before.  You know why?  Because I’m 24 weeks pregnant and maternity pants are elastic.  That’s right……I’m eating for two and have expandable pants.  Best thing ever by the way.   Have you ever seen that Thanksgiving episode of Friends where Joey forces himself to eat the entire turkey himself and shows up wearing Phoebe’s old maternity pants?  Well, may I suggest we all be a little bit more “Joey” this year?  Come prepared with stretchy pants and eat all the turkey and stuffing and veggie goodness your little heart desires.   Whether you’re  asked to bring a side dish to a party or hosting yourself, I went ahead and went through a bunch of recipes and picked my favorite Thanksgiving side dishes that I think would be perfect for you.   Links to each one included below.  Happy eating!!!
