What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Sides Matter

Whether they’re old standbys or healthy alternatives or international additions, I think Thanksgiving side dishes are the best part of the holiday meal. I like turkey okay, but it’s really all the things that go with that make the dinner feel special to me. So I thought today, we’d explore some of the more tempting-looking (to me, at least) side dishes of all varieties.

Now it’s reader participation time. If you have a favorite recipe you’d like to share, or you’d like to weigh in on which are your favorites, I’d love to hear from you!

  1. I have been going back home for Thanksgiving because another family member was there also. She is no longer making the trip back so this year I am going to go back for Christmas and not Thanksgiving. I hope everything works out and I will be moved back home and there for all the holidays with the family. I will check out evrey link later. Hal

  2. Things change…..They just aren’t the same but we make the best of them. Of course all of the recipes look and read as good enough to eat but I have a stack of internet copied recipes that I probably will never use. Its a habit I need to break because the few I have tried don’t turn out as good to eat as the old family favorites.

  3. The sides are always my favourite part of any major celebratory meal. We have guests for Thanksgiving this year so I am doing a more traditional meal plan but – being relatively new to this holiday – I normally just ask each member of the household to tell me what thing they want me to cook this year and I cobble it together from those requests. They always name the sides and desserts.

  4. Yum. I saw a sweet potato dish topped with pecans and brown sugar that I might try. I will probably half the recipe because no one else is crazy about sweet potatoes.
