Happy Thanksgiving

Happy early Thanksgiving! I hope you all have safe travels this week and treasure the time spent with family and friends. I have so many things to be thankful for, and one of them is The Ruby Spoon. I love sharing my passion for food and drink with you. I am also thankful that my mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law, and niece will be spending Thanksgiving here in Michigan with David and I. We are so very happy to have this time together and I can’t wait to bake, sauté, baste, boil, and eat my way through Thanksgiving with my family.

I will be making our meal the day of Thanksgiving, so unfortunately I won’t be able to post anything in time for you to see it this year. Last year David and I made everything early for the two of us, so feel free to check out those recipes by typing “thanksgiving” into the search bar at the top left of the page.

This year we are going for a traditional spread, but with a bit of Southwestern flair, with some items having a little kick of heat. Most of these are found in the cookbooks listed below, but a few can be found on the internet.

The rolls and dressing will be coming from the grocery store. I still have a nostalgic soft spot for Stove Top- I am not ashamed!

Just a reminder, you can find recipes by typing a key word in the search bar (ingredient, type of recipe etc.) at the top left of the page. You can also search via the tags category on the left side of the page, or click on the Recipes tag at the top of the page.

Happy eating and happy Thanksgiving!
