Modern Twist On Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is round the corner…wow, that’s freaky to think about. For my “last minute” people, this is the post for you. These recipes are quick and delicious. Instead of the classic green beans, turkey, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and potatoes, I decided to create a fun twist on the classic Thanksgiving dinner. Warm-Rosemary-Apple-Wheatberry-Salad_04

What’s on the menu:

Salad: I love wheatberry’s. They are a great staple to have in your pantry and are extremely versitile.

Soup: Soup is nice to have on Thanksgiving because it is a bunch of flavors combined into a liquid. I love how soup keep you full, but not too full.

Turkey: What’s Thanksgiving without the turkey?

Drink: This cranberry, pomegranate, and green tea spritzer will sure impress your guests (and yourself!) Feel free to add alcohol of so desired.

Dessert bars: Alas, my favorite part of Thanksgiving, or any day for that matter, dessert. I recently made these after sampling them in Williams Sonoma. These pumpkin bars can simply be described as a more flavorful version of pumpkin pie, in bar form.
