Thanksgiving 2016

apple pie

Thanksgiving time is all about family, friends and FOOD!  I have always loved Thanksgiving and ,whether I have a table full of guests or a small gathering, I always insist on making way more food than is needed.  Of course, there is the turkey, but that is not my focus, I am way more into the sides and all that go with the main act!  It can get overwhelming, I know, to figure out and prepare all of this food as well as do everything we feel we need to do to make house and table acceptable for guests.  To ease this pressure, here is a menu of sides and desserts for delivery or pick up during the week of Thanksgiving, helping you make this Thanksgiving  easy as pie!

* all orders will be ready for pick up or delivery November 23.
