who needs a main? thanksgiving side dishes worth sharing!

For most Americans, the focus of this coming holiday will be on the dead bird at the center of the table. But, many of us (vegetarian or otherwise) also spend a lot of time on the supporting side dishes- hopefully everyone will be able to celebrate the bounty available to us by enjoying mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, that infamous green bean thing, and a host of other dishes. If you are looking for some inspiration to change up your side dish rotation, here are some of my favorite dishes for your holiday table, whether there is a birdie in the center or not (hopefully not!). These dishes are great for just a few family members around a table, but they also work well for big potlucks and ‘family-style’ meals. Blessings for your holiday, whomever you might share it with!
