30 Thanksgiving Meal Ideas to Feast On

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Are you hosting 25 people or are you taking a pie to your in-laws? Whatever your plans are, I hope these 30 links give you some tasty inspiration and ideas.

Happy Eating!

Let's talk Turkey!
In 2010, I ran a series called Turkey Week. Here is the recap:

Super Side Dishes


Every Thanksgiving morning, I run in a Turkey Trot 5k sponsored by the local YMCA. While I love to run, the only reason I run a 5k on Thanksgiving morning is so I can eat 3 pieces of dessert later in the day without an ounce of guilt.

And finally, are you on a budget this holiday? The Save Quarter will show you How to make a complete, traditional Thanksgiving dinner for 8 for under $30, in under 3 hours!

Do you have a Thanksgiving recipe that you'd like to share? Leave the link in the comments.
