Cindy's Thanksgiving Menu

Here is my Thanksgiving menu!  

What is your favorite holiday? My first favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. The main reason is you can create an amazing meal and easily combine family and friends to a thankful feast enjoyed by everyone! The leftovers are the best and you can be guilt free picking at them later in the evening or recreate for another meal. I love making a turkey pot pie and turkey soup with my leftovers! If you really want the mashed potatoes then go for smashed cauliflower.
