Wedged between two other fantastic holidays, Thanksgiving can sadly become lost in the hustle and bustle of costumes and candy canes. (Yes – we’re talking about you, Christmas and Halloween!) So lets put down the tinsel and pick up some turkey!
It’s time to give Thanksgiving the recognition it deserves because lets face it, who doesn’t love the four “F”s of Thanksgiving: football, family, friends and food.
We are going to focus on the fourth “F” – food – and help you get ready to leave everyone’s stomachs stuffed this Thanksgiving.
Here are some of our favorite recipes from “Entertain With Jane” and a few others that will leave your family and friends running for seconds, and ending up in a food coma on the couch while watching football in the afternoon.
