My Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Thanksgiving is the reason I keep avoiding starting a diet this time of year! I can make it through Halloween easily, but between our Friendsgiving Parties and Thanksgiving, FORGET ABOUT IT!!!! Even on Thanksgiving, we do a late BIG lunch and then for dinner, it’s left overs! I HATE left overs, but there is just something about Thanksgiving food!!!! Below I have my favorite side dishes!! I’m letting you know now that these are not all of my photos or my recipes! EXCEPT FOR THE CREAM CHEESE CORN && CREAM CHEESE CELERY! THOSE ARE FAMILY RECIPES!!! We loveeeee Cream Cheese as you can see!! 😉 The OTHER recipes have links to the original owner and I’m also sharing them on my pinterest!! (Click the Dish Name or the photo to go to recipe) P.S.
