Thanksgiving Side Round Up!

Thnanksgiving sides

I love thanksgiving.  The reason I love thanksgiving is simple… THE SIDES!   From potatoes to veggies to carbs on carbs on GRAVY!  It’s too much. I saw on the news they were calculating how many calories you eat on Thanksgiving.  Now that is just unamerican!! It doesn’t matter!  That is why you do a little turkey trot and make it your one meal of the day!  You just have to indulge or risk insulting the chef!  You don’t want to do that.  And if the chef is you… well you most of all deserve this meal!  All the standing in the kitchen and stirring sure burned a lot of calories anyways.  So here are some amazing sides for you to try if you have not already planned your meal!!
