Our Easy, Delicious, & Nourishing Thanksgiving Menu

Would you believe me if I told you this is the first year I've ever done Thanksgiving at MY house?! I feel like such a grown-up now, lol.  So I've planned everything out, including a stray from the traditional for the main ingredient, the turkey. This year we'll be SMOKING our turkey!! I saw the recipe below from How Sweet It Is and instantly fell in love. She had me at the "Cider Bourbon Gravy"!!! I sent an email to all my family members who will be attending (my inlaws, brother-in-law, and hubby) to get their buy-in -- and it was a resounding "Yes!" So, below you will find all of the items I plan on making for the big day.
