Our Thanksgiving Menu

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is enjoying family recipes that have been passed on by generations. This is the first year I’ll be hosting Thanksgiving completely on my own. However, I have a helpful husband who’s agreed to be on turkey duty, which takes a major load off my plate. He’s pretty brilliant with all types of meat, so I’m confident it’ll be a turkey to remember. I also took a shortcut by picking up a frozen apple pie last weekend at Abel’s Acres in Apple Hill, but they do such an amazing job with their pies I really don’t feel guilty — I’m basically doing my family a favor. I LOVE to cook but don’t have much interest in baking desserts. Plus, every other item on this menu is made from scratch.
If you’re still searching for the best recipes to use, I highly recommend all of the ones below. I pulled from some of the best of Ryan’s family dishes as well as mine, then threw in some of my own flare. Everything on here is guaranteed to leave your guests satisfied and Thanksgiving stretchy pants full, which is what we all strive for isn’t it?

    • Highlight of my weekend was a date night with this guy 🥰. I got this leopard blazer from @zara back in November, and I’m loving how it carries into spring time by pairing it with some white jeans and open toed heels. It’s a good thing I don’t post photos of myself every time I go out, or you’d all be saying “Hey Beth, this blazer is over played. Go shopping.” 😂🤪🤷🏻‍♀️ #leopardprintforlife #datenightoutfit #stylishmomsociety
    • Happy birthday to my sweet 3 year old Preston Henry. You have always and will always have your mama’s heart ❤️
    • Weekend highlight: celebrating sweet baby Erickson due so soon! 🥰 Can’t wait to love on him or her! Can you believe @laurenerickson1027 is waiting to find out the gender? Love her, but she be CRAY 😂

@edwardsfamily4 curated the most gorgeous baby shower, no surprise there 💖✨ #babyshower #babynumber3 #boyorgirl
    • Belated Valentine’s celebration with this guy 😍. Staycation perks: staying out late with zero accountability followed by sleeping in. Also, having uninterrupted conversations; that’s always nice too 🤪 #boglevineyards #sheratongrandsacramento #forevervalentine
    • There’s nothing I love more than watching these two love on each other 🥰❤️. What is everyone up to for Valentines Day? Personally I hate going out the day-of, so Ryan planned a little night away this weekend and he made dinner reservations and I DON’T KNOW WHERE. And I didn’t wife-cromanage this; he made these plans all on his own 😂🙌🏻 #valentinesday2019
    • In case anyone was wondering, I’m still obsessed with having a sun room, and @boglevineyards wines. #rainydaydontcare #californiamom #needtobeoutside #sacramentoblogger
    • I truly do cherish our Costco lunch dates, even though it was freezing cold today. My baby is almost 3 and it’s kind of making me sad. Time really does speed up the older you get, especially after you have kids 😢. #cherrishthemoment #prestonhenry #secondborn
    • This kid spent the entire summer last year asking to swim. Literally every single day, “Mom can we go swimming ?”🐟 Which is why I’m SO EXCITED that he got a spot on the super impacted, hardly any spots available U6 boys swim team! We only had to get there and wait in line at 6am in the rain 🤪 and by we, I mean super dad @ryancurtismitchell. Parenting win! #apdolphins
    • Today marks the first day ever where Preston’s hair cut didn’t involve physical restraint and screaming bloody murder. He was such a good boy and got the biggest smile on his face when he looked at himself in the mirror afterwards 💛💛. I knew you’d conquer that fear someday Presto 😍. Scroll for his “before” pic ➡️😂
