    Yum, yum, and more yum!! I’m definitely the girl with a plate full of side dishes and a tiny helping of turkey. I could so be a vegetarian. I’m coming to your house next year. 😉

    I’ve never prepared Brussels Sprouts for Thanksgiving…green bean casserole is the go to green veggie 🙂

    I’m not sure I’ve ever mentioned this, but I was a vegetarian for 5 years. So I really appreciate this! Thanksgiving was always a hard time of year because the main dish is meat and I couldn’t eat a lot. These look so good!

    • JulieWunder November 20, 2015 at 4:34 pm - Reply

      I didn’t know that!! I think that is why I make so many sides– because I want a full plate too! 🙂

    Hooray for vegetarian side dishes! So much yum!

    I’m personally going more meatless in my diet, but my family would NEVER let me do a vegetarian Thanksgiving lol! –

      haha! Mine either– my hubby makes two giant Turkeys– smokes one and fries one 🙂 I just don’t cook meat.

    Yikes! I can’t believe how quickly Thanksgiving snuck up on us this year! Thanks for sharing this round up! I am super interested in those crock pot mashed potatoes! I <3 the crock pot!

    • JulieWunder November 20, 2015 at 4:25 pm - Reply

      I feel the same way! I’m normally much more prepared. I make the Crock Pot mashed potatoes every year!
