Every holiday ought to involve pie in some way, shape, or form (in my humble, hungry opinion.) Before you start the work of making those pies, READ THIS POST! You will never make pie crust any other way. Trust me – this crust recipe is THAT GOOD! And did I mention that they are easy to make, too? BONUS!
You go to all the work of roasting the perfect bird, and mashing the perfect potatoes, for your holiday table. Why drench those tasty tidbits in anything less than the BEST gravy around? You’ll be drooling over this cider gravy in seconds flat!
Is dinner taking a little longer than you planned to get on the table? Are the kids starting in with their chorus of “I’m HUNGRY!!”? Keep those little (and big) hands busy with these free printable thanksgiving mad libs. Lots of laughs, guaranteed!
Speaking of keeping kids busy – having these adorable felt thanksgiving creations handy will be a great idea. Whether it is before dinner, or after – young and old will enjoy spending some quality time together creating their own unique felt masterpieces!
