The time to give thanks is swiftly approaching, and with it, the frenzy that comes when you realize you have 6 DAYS to get ready! I know I am starting to feel the heat.
Whether you are looking for traditional fare, like green bean casserole and sweet potato recipes, or something a little different (thai steamed pumpkin custard? Yes, please!), if you haven't found it by now, you had better get started!
Gone are the days of cracking open that new cookbook full of holiday recipes or getting down that box of grandma's best hits from above the fridge, where it's been since last year. These days, women are taking to the web and searching for new holiday greatness, as well as long forgotten favorites. They are pinning to boards and adding to interactive recipe collections.
Here are a few places to get started this weekend in your search for the next family favorite for your table!
Of course, I'm just gonna get it over with and start with pinterest. If you're Iooking for a one-stop shop, this is it. I mean, come on. Recipes, advice, even crafts for you and the kids. What more could you ask for? It's just beautiful. Find your meal, decorations, ideas, and inspiration in one site.
If you want more, head over to Martha Stewart's Everything Thanksgiving page, and find solid advice and videos on how to do just about everything that you would need to know how to do in your lifetime, turkey-wise.
