Thanksgiving Sides

Thanksgiving Sides

I’m giddy just writing this post. I love Thanksgiving. And not just because I’m an American living in Canada so I get TWO of them out of the deal but because I love the food. I also love how, unlike the holidays in December, there are no presents to buy, just good food to eat. However, if you’re the one hosting the holiday then setting the menu, planning and prepping can be stressful. In our opinion, the true stars of the meal are the sides. Yes, we know, turkey is the anchor of the festivities but, let’s be honest, everyone loves the sides the most. Obviously, you can’t break with some tradition. For instance, there would be full anarchy at our family table if my mom didn’t make her famous sausage stuffing but there’s nothing wrong with introducing a few new showstoppers. Maybe they’ll even end up becoming a family tradition? Here are some of our favourite sides plus one kick-butt pie because, obviously, you need pie.
