With it being the holiday season, this is the time of year we are throwing many events or get-togethers. Coming up with ideas on what to serve can be confusing, especially when you want to make sure that everyone will enjoy what you serve.

My husband and I love to entertain. However, we don’t always have a lot of time to make an entire meal, or many different appetizers. However, we love options and know that our guests do too.

Stuffed Crescents with Thanksgiving Leftovers

If you make homemade rolls – which I dream to about –  just double your batch and set aside half the dough for the next day. If you’re a store bought girl – which I am – then pop open that package when you’re ready to heat up some leftovers.

The Turkey. It’s the prize of the table, no need for a centerpiece with this bird, for if it’s cooked right its glory is more than regal enough to make your table glow. This year we are getting our own bird and I couldn’t be more excited to try a wild Oregon bird. Normally I pour over the local stores and their turkey providers, weighing the pros and cons of heritage birds, organic birds, and trying my hardest to find a free range bird that lived a healthy life before it lands on my table. This year my husband will be hunting for a perfect wild bird to grace our table and I am over the moon!
