Thank you for the great blog. Our HR Assignment Help expert is happy to find this blog.
My grandma had a sticker on her fridge when I was growing up that had the seafood/see food saying on it. So every time I hear that, I think of her! These green beans look like the perfect side for Thanksgiving!
I know and love that booming laugh! Your post has taken me down memory lane. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving! Looking forward to the launch…
Ahh, Erin! Will I see you this week? I think T-bone is coming. More stories to share! XOXO
I could easily live by your Uncle Tom’s philosophy. Well said, indeed! I can’t think of a better way to liven up green beans than by pairing them with shiitake mushrooms (my favorite). Thanks so much for including my cauliflower recipe, Heidi.
What I love most about Thanksgiving is that all families celebrate it in their own personal way. It’s one occasion when multi-generations sit at the same table and catch up and share stories. Side dishes are definitely my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner – love all the gorgeous photos!
These are all fabulous recipes! My husband asks for green beans for Thanksgiving and I think I just found the recipe! Great post!
Oh good! From my husband to yours: eat lots.

Once again, I am inspired. Gonna get the things I need on my list and start making them. I personally think Thanksgiving should be on a daily basis. Eat food that’s good for you, and give thanks for so many things we have in our lives.
For some reason I’m bad with coming up with food ideas but lately I’m looking like I’m super healthy cook because of your blog! :)

Great recipe and selections, Heidi! Honestly, I never liked Thanksgiving much, but that’s because I wasn’t eating recipes like these. Yum to all!
Oh, that’s so sweet Kate! Seems like your blog would be plenty to inspire you. Beaut!
Your story is so beautiful, I remember listening to similar tales when I was a little girl, especially around Christmas where more of our extended family would get together. That mash potato and beans look dreamy! Perfect with a juicy roast.
It’s what the holidays are all about don’t you think? Thanks for the comment. :) Yum. Roast.
Yum! All these side dishes look amazing. I can’t wait to try the Green Beans with Shiitake Mushrooms
out. It seems healthy and light.
The green bean recipe is really light, and you can use as much or as little butter as you like. Unless you’re my husband. Then it’s just MORE BUTTER.

I think I’ll be adding the Cranberry Pomegranate Relish to our menu this year! YUM! Happy Thanksgiving! Salud!

I love how you recount Thanksgivings past. And I love these simple sides. Cheers to new Thanksgiving memories!
It’s all about the sides since I don’t do turkey:)
All about memories and traditions. That’s why I LOVE Thanksgiving! Every one of these side dishes has me salivating!

love all of these!!
You are right girl, it is all about creating those memories & keeping a great big smile on your face. Those buttery mashed potatoes…OMG!!
You somehow made green beans look like the sexiest vegetable on the planet. Seriously. When can we get together and play?

Wow, thanks so much for the shout-out to my pomegranate tutorial :) These look like some awesome side dishes—those potatoes? Oh. my. goodness.

Love the 1st pic of the green beans. The vertical, long, beans are just so perfectly accentuated with your photography. GREAT CLICK!
