On the hunt for some new servings bowls, I headed to Home Goods (the interior design version of Marshalls â€“ you must go if you havenâ€™t been!). I really wanted to hit up Goodwill or a consignment store â€“ it wouldâ€™ve been so much cheaper â€“ but ran out of time. Maybe next year.
I scored four white dishes for about $50. Not too bad. I didnâ€™t want to buy a holiday-specific set because, obviously, I want to use these year-around.
Iâ€™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 Iâ€™ve learned from food blogging is that food almost always looks better in a white dish. I hope my Thanksgiving foods really pop!
So â€“ whatâ€™s on the menu?

Iâ€™m hoping this is more than enough food â€“ if Iâ€™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 everythingâ€¦ and try not to trash the kitchen in the process.
