A Real Food Thanksgiving Plan

I’m off this morning to stand in a line with fellow real food enthusiasts to pick up a local pasture-raised turkey.  A turkey that will grace our family’s dinner table in just hours with a feast set for a King and Queen.  Wondering what exactly will spread our table and leave us enough leftovers for weeks worth of meals?

Today, I’m sharing my grand scheme.

Below you will find the recipes our family will enjoy this Thanksgiving both from Live Simply and fellow real food bloggers.
