Thanksgiving Menu Ideas from Around the World #2

Good day, fellow festive-folk. From addictive comfort food to iron-rich and healthy, I’ve got your Thanksgiving hook-up. That’s right… for the second day in a row, I’m sharing menu ideas to fill out your Thanksgiving table. Our regularly scheduled cooking will continue next week with Cyprus.

At the risk of sounding like “The Count” on Sesame Street: yesterday our ideas came from countries that begin with the letter A… today they come from countries that begin with the letter “B.”

Note: Be sure to read the associated Monday Meal Reviews for tips and tricks.
