Do you have your Thanksgiving menu planned yet? Or the side dish you need to bring?

We are staying in Seattle and keeping it really simple this year. We were originally hoping to go to the East Coast for a big family celebration but the timing  didn’t work out. Then I was trying to convince my family to go out for an all day adventure and for Indian Food. Let’s just say that didn’t go over really well.

Last night we finally settled on a menu and in case you haven’t, here are some ideas to keep this Thanksgiving stress-free and as easy on your waistline as possible!
