On the hunt for some new servings bowls, I headed to Home Goods (the interior design version of Marshalls – you must go if you haven’t been!). I really wanted to hit up Goodwill or a consignment store – it would’ve been so much cheaper – but ran out of time. Maybe next year.
I scored four white dishes for about $50. Not too bad. I didn’t want to buy a holiday-specific set because, obviously, I want to use these year-around.
I’m becoming my mother. I own more than one serving dish.
Anyway, one-third life crisis aside, I really like the texture of these dishes. One thing that I’ve learned from food blogging is that food almost always looks better in a white dish. I hope my Thanksgiving foods really pop!
So – what’s on the menu?

I’m hoping this is more than enough food – if I’m going to do all this cooking, I want a lot of leftovers.
It was a bit challenging to plan a menu for a group of six adults who are, in one way or another, dairy-free, vegetarian, diabetic, and/or gluten-free, but it was also pretty fun. Now, I just have to cook everything… and try not to trash the kitchen in the process.
