Today’s Daily Prompt is perfect for the month of November. I have always believed that food is nourishment for your soul just as much as it is for your body. The love that is shared and passed on through food is never more apparent than during the holiday season when people gather to cook and share together.

Every year, they have great Thanksgiving menu ideas (which usually follow a flavor theme). We have been using this as our Thanksgiving guide for more years than I can count and everybody who eats with us always enjoys the meal. My mom put together her menu with recipes from different years. Continue reading “Thanksgiving Feast”
