Thanksgiving appetizer + a lucite gift idea

November 24, 2014

Have you started meal planning for the big Turkey Day feast next week? Since I’m been known for coming up with recipe ideas that are uber aggressive and aren’t finished until the day after Thanksgiving (whoopsie!), I’ve opted to take on pre-feast food this year, afternoon appetizers. This butternut squash ricotta and sage crostini was a crowd pleaser last Thanksgiving, so I’m going to give it another whirl. The ingredients are seasonal and just scream Thanksgiving to me. I love this recipe because it mixes sweet and savory, and isn’t too heavy, the perfect kick start to your Thanksgiving feast.  And you can make part of the recipe the day before, which is clutch when it comes to one less prep element in the kitchen.

How fun is this lucite serving tray? Who doesn’t love a good personalized item, and lucite is so chic and goes with everything. These gems are custom made and you can choose from a wide range of colors and patterns. And the inserts can easily be swapped out, which means options for holidays and also a go-to design for the rest of the year. These trays are perfect Christmas gifts for the hostess with the mostess in your life.

p.s. The hubs is also getting into the cooking mix this Thanksgiving and making this carrot soup recipe. It requires a pressure cooker and looks pretty involved. I’m pretty pumped he’s going to represent our fam this year in the uber-aggressive recipe department!
