Now that it’s November, my mind is only one thing: Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, not just because it means gathering with family and loved ones, but also because it means filling my plate with the best food I’ll eat all year. While turkey is a necessary classic on the table, it’s not the dish I look forward to the most. The real stars of Thanksgiving are all of the delicious sides. However, making such a large array of dishes is complicated and time-consuming, so here are some easy recipes to try out this season. You’ll spend less time in the kitchen and more time with your family.
Garlic Parmesan Knots
Mini Stuffed Peppers
Cranberry Brie Bites
The Extra Touch: Napkin Folding!
Want to add a special touch to your dinner table? Try out some of these napkin folding ideas!
Start with your napkin in a square. Fold two opposite corners into the center, and fold a third corner in on top of them - like an envelope. Tip: Iron your napkins like this so that the folds will stay! Place silverware inside the “envelope,” and place on your plate.
The Double Diamond
Using a square napkin, fold diagonally to make a triangle. Take each of the bottom corners and fold them up to the top point of the triangle, making a diamond shape. Flip the diamond over, then fold the corner closest to you up to the center of the diamond. Take the two side corners, and fold under. Set at each plate to impress your guests!
You’re all set for Thanksgiving dinner. Now, it’s time to eat!
