It’s Thanksgiving week! I love to cook for Thanksgiving. It’s all about the enjoying family and having great food.
Since I’ll be doing most of the dinner on Thanksgiving I’m taking the easy road for the rest of the week. We’ll be having breakfast for dinner one night. A couple of easy and quick pork chop dinners and chicken artichoke casserole.
Then on Friday after Thanksgiving, we will be decorating our house for Christmas. It’s a tradition we’ve done for years now. I get down all the Christmas decorations and the kids and I work on transforming our home. It’s a lot of work but so much fun too.
Since we’ll be working on decorating all day, I keep dinner easy by making pizza. I use a pizza dough recipe that doesn’t need to rise and we can get 2-3 pizza cooked and ready to eat in about 30-45 minutes. It’s nice to have something different after a big holiday dinner the night before.
If you’ll be cooking the holiday dinner and are feeling a little stressed, take a listen to a recent podcast about simplifying your holiday dinner. I share 5 tips in the podcast plus how I cook our turkey for Thanksgiving too.
