52Lists Project // Thanksgiving Menu

Thanksgiving is almost here. It’s one of my favorite holidays. I have fond memories of getting up early in the morning, watching the parade and eating nonstop. We are pretty traditional in our family with regard to the menu. Today I am sharing what will be on our table for Thanksgiving dinner along with others for the 52 Lists Project.
