Fun Essentials for Turkey Day Entertaining

This post is sponsored by

Thanksgiving 2019 is almost here and I’m excited to share a few fun essentials for Turkey Day entertaining! I have had it very easy with my family on Thanksgiving. My mom-in-law has been hosting Thanksgiving at her house in the desert the last few years so we typically just bring a side dish to share. I love the traditional food options and I always enjoy trying something new each year. This year I’m bringing you a few fun essentials for your Turkey Day entertaining! 

Fun Essentials for Turkey Day Entertaining

First Essential: Entertaining With a Cookbook 

First things first, The Joys of Baking by Samantha Seneviratne is my favorite cookbook for baked goods right now. I just made these delicious carmel cookies and they are a must for any holiday gathering. This book is filled with beautiful photos and a great centerpiece for your Turkey Day table. It’s a fun book to browse through for baking ideas plus it has amazing stories that pull at the heartstrings. The Joys of Baking is to be enjoyed during times of pleasure and challenging times. It has charming, relatable and in depth stories included with the recipes. 

Cooking Oil in a Squeeze Pouch! 

Secondly, another fun essential is Nutiva Squeezable Organic Virgin Coconut Oil! This makes cooking almost anything a breeze. It’s easy to grab and squeeze to get any dish started plus it is mess-free. I use it to sauté veggies, grease a pan or add to baked goods. The steam-refined Coconut Oil has no coconut flavor which I love for savory dishes.

Turkey Day Essentials: A Snack For the Cook

Next, I have a snack option for when you’re cooking and trying not to fill up on all the Turkey Day goods! Try chimichurri Baked Pea Crisps from Peeled Snacks for a tasty and light snack to keep you fueled. They also have gently dried mango which is full of nutrients, not sugar. It’s another great snack option for the family on Turkey Day.

Fun Essentials for Turkey Day Entertaining: Simplifying Mac and Cheese

So many traditional dishes get all the love on Thanksgiving, simplify when you can. With Butter Parmesan Sauce from RAGÚ®, now you can make the Real Deal 3-Minute Mac with your family in no time. This Mac and Cheese will be a super easy addition to your families favorite day!
