As the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaches we have been reflecting on all that we are thankful for at The Blind Pig Blog. We are thankful for our family (all three of the piglets) and of course our extended families in Texas, Missouri and abroad. We are very thankful for our friends and health during this crazy year, and we are thankful to our faithful Blind Pig Blog Readers.
Writing a blog can be like calling into an abyss at times. You are never really sure if anyone is reading your posts and reacting to what you have to say. We appreciate those of you who have reached out to us through comments, likes and other means to let us know that you are “out there somewhere” reading and nodding your head.
Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays, because the focus is not on presents and gift giving (not that Rhonda doesn’t like a good gift– wink, wink). The focus is on family, spending time together and reflecting on all of our blessings this year. Of course, the food and beverages are a fun part of the holiday, too. Who doesn’t love the yummy food?
Like ours, your Thanksgiving may look a little different this year. There may be fewer people around the Thanksgiving table and you may not be spending the day with relatives that you only see a few precious times each year. However, you can still make this day special whether you have 2 or 10 at your feast. We thought that we would share some of our favorite posts from this year and years past to help you plan your Thanksgiving celebration.
To host the perfect Thanksgiving meal large or small, you need to offer some great cocktails. Here are a few that we hand selected for you.
Don’t have time to fix drinks for guests while you are checking on the turkey? No problem. Try one of our sangrias for a large batch cocktail that can be prepared before guests arrive.
Need something on the lighter side for a before or after dinner drink? We’ve got you covered with an Orange You Glad or an Apple Mule.
For those who like something a little more alcohol forward a Spiced Fall Manhattan or a Reverse Manhattan works before or after a big meal.
Every big meal needs to have a grand finale. Need some dessert ideas to make for the big day? Any of these would be a perfect ending to a delicious turkey meal.
There are always those who would rather drink their dessert, so try a Pumpkin Spice Martini. It will be a crowd pleaser.
It seems like this is a good year to keep some old traditions and mix in some new. Which Blind Pig Blog favorite is going to make it into your Thanksgiving spread this year?
