Do I dare start talking about Thanksgiving already? I’m sure it feels as though you just had trick-or-treaters at your door, but the reality is there are only a few weeks until turkey day. And since I’m pretty much a self-professed turkey disliker, I’m going to be making and sharing some of my favorite Thanksgiving side dishes with you. Turkey schmurkey – bring on the mashed potatoes, stuffing, sweet potato casserole and cranberry fluff!
My absolute favorite Thanksgiving side dish is Cranberry Fluff – it’s sweet tangy, and the perfect companion to savory Thanksgiving fare. I was first introduced to this cranberry dessert years ago by my stepmom and it was most definitely love at first bite. How can you go wrong with cranberry sauce, crushed pineapple and miniature marshmallows? It’s like a match made in Thanksgiving heaven.
I can’t be the only one that loads up my Thanksgiving plate with every side dish available – in double and triple servings – with just a nod (and a few bites) of turkey. I’m not gonna lie – all the savory stuff still gets covered in gravy, but the sweet sides, like this Cranberry Fluff – oh man. A few bites of savory, then a few bites of sweet, tangy, cool almost-dessert-but-not-quite Fluff. I don’t think there’s anything better in life, at least when it comes to a Thanksgiving meal.
As you may remember from my Ambrosia Salad post, I’ve teamed up with Emily from Jelly Toast and Campfire® Marshmallows. You’ll see more recipes from us, and hopefully even more exciting stuff during the holiday season.
We even created a Marshmallow Madness Pin Board where we’ll pinning loads of delicious marshmallow recipes from our favorite food sites.
