Noni and David now share their favorite Thanksgiving dishes!

Noni’s says that this easy sweet potato casserole is like desert with the buttery and sweet topping.  It truly sounds delicious!  And David goes for the classic with turkey and gravy.  He does seem eager to carve the turkey every Thanksgiving!  Although, as the carver he hands out little samples to everyone in the family.

Thanksgiving Foodies – Bree & Cecily

More Thanksgiving foodie thoughts! Here’s what Bree and Cecily (that’s me!) had to say regarding their favorite Thanksgiving dishes:

Bree shares a delicious roasted butternut squash dish that sounds perfect for Thanksgiving, or anytime during the fall/winter months.  I’m thinking you could even substitute the butternut squash with pumpkin!  My favorite dish is Pecan Pie because it’s not only a delicious way to finish the meal, but it brings back memories of being with my grannie who also loved pecan pie.
