Hi, I’m back. I know it’s been a while, how is it already Thanksgiving! I realized I could not juggle a full time job, recipe development, blogging, and wedding planning back in February, so sadly I had to take a little break.
It was definitely worth it. Our wedding was without a doubt, the best day of our lives. If you follow me on instagram @figsandflour than you have seen a lot of pictures, but just in case, let me leave one more here.
But now, I am really excited to devote my new found free time back to figs & flour. I thought I would ease back in with a Thanksgiving menu, but 7 new recipes later, I think I went a little overboard, per usual.
I am really excited about this year’s menu. It’s complete with just about everything you need for Thanksgiving, except the cornerstone Turkey. Can you have a Thanksgiving menu without a Turkey, if it was up to me, absolutely! But really, I have not included a Turkey because I don’t know how to cook one, nor do I typically eat it on Thanksgiving. However, you can definitely add one to this menu and remove a side or just go for it! Everything is on the healthier side, vegetarian and there are many gluten free and dairy free options to fit with the unique dietary needs of all family members. Hopefully there is something on here to make everyone happy! You can click on each title below to go to the recipe once its updated!
