Thanksgiving Meal Ideas

It's Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend which is one of my favorite holidays. However, this year is rather bittersweet given our recent loss of Ome. We just returned from her funeral and after a whirlwind 72 hours that included 26 hours of driving in 2 days, I am beat. But I can't even imagine how much trouble I would be in if Ome knew I didn't feel like preparing a feast this year so I'm going to channel my inner Ome, put on a smile and start cooking up a storm. Some years I make ham but this year i'm going with a traditional turkey dinner with mashed potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce so whether you're going with ham or turkey, I figured I would share a list of my favorite tried and true recipes:

Roast Turkey from Simply Recipes
Maple Glazed Ham
Stuffing from Simply Recipes
Creamy Mashed Potatoes from The Pioneer Woman
Cranberry Sauce from The Unreserved
Rich Turkey Gravy from Epicurious.com
Roasted Brussel Sprouts from My Husband Cooks
Garlic Cheddar Biscuits
Pumpkin Pie from Smitten Kitchen
