The Tastiest Thanksgiving EVER!

Have you made YOUR Thanksgiving menu yet? It IS November, after all!

If you were with me here last year on the blog, you will remember that I took an entire week and did a series called “The Tastiest Thanksgiving EVER!”

A great group of my blogger pals all submitted their favorite Thanksgiving recipe, and there were photos and printables galore! It was fantastic!

So this year, since there are so many new people here along The Road to Domestication (hi there, newbies!), I figured that I’d remind everyone about the series, and give all the links to those posts and recipes in one spot! How about that?! As a matter of fact, I have literally prepared your entire Thanksgiving menu for you, right here! (Well, except for the turkey!)

So let’s get going!

A Winner…and a Crock Pot Steak Dinner!

First of all, the winner of the $30 Amazon gift card to celebrate the third birthday of The Road to Domestication…Zoe Monteleone! Zoe, send me an email to Kristen@theroadtodomestication and I will hook you up!

And now…

When I saw the words “Crock Pot Steak Dinner!” on Pinterest last week, I was surprised and rather doubtful. While I’ve seen some amazing things done with a crock pot, an entire steak dinner…all in one crock pot?

I decided to try it. I mean, it couldn’t be that bad, right? I break out the crock pot every Sunday night and prep for Monday’s dinner. Around here, Mondays tend to be kind of rough, so it’s always nice to come home after a stressful day and walk in the house to the smell of a finished dinner!

Here’s the instructions:

  • Line the bottom of the crock pot with foil
  • Place a thick (at least 3/4-inch) steak in the bottom, and cover with at least 1/2 cup of steak sauce (my husband will only use A1 at our house!)
  • Add another layer of foil
  • Add in potatoes (foil wrapped) and FROZEN corn cobs (foil wrapped)

Entire Steak Dinner...in the Crock Pot!

 

So basically, as you can see, at this point it looks like a crock pot full of foil!

Day 1 of the Tastiest Thanksgiving Ever!

I LOVE Thanksgiving. And, as a result of my love for this holiday, I got a crazy idea a few months ago.

I wanted to do a series here on the blog where people could share their tried and true recipes for Thanksgiving. You know, the ones that their grandmothers had made for generations, the ones they were really proud of, and that they wanted to share with others, so all of our Thanksgiving menus could be simply wonderful this year! Oh, how exciting! Did I mention that I LOVE Thanksgiving?!

And so, The Tastiest Thanksgiving Ever was born!
