Thanksgiving Shortcuts

I’m a do it yourself kinda girl and love to make everything homemade in the kitchen too. This year, we are celebrating Thanksgiving at a relatives house over the weekend, so for Thanksgiving Day we’re going to keep it quick and simple. Thanksgiving dinner is always one of my favorite meals of the year, so I wanted all the traditional flavors and dishes, but didn’t want to spend days in the kitchen. So we’re sneaking in a few pre-made items from Trader Joe’s.

We aren’t going in completely blind, we sampled their stuffing while shopping over the weekend and it is tasty.

We also found a small container of Turkey Gravy.

Now I can focus on the turkey, veggie dishes, and a dessert (our 4 year old is in charge of picking out the dessert to make, should be fun!).

Since I’m pregnant and not up for a marathon cooking session, hopefully adding in a few pre-made items will be just what we need to make this years Thanksgiving holiday simple and enjoyable.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
