Thanksgiving Recipes: Virtual Thanksgiving Meal
When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of my sister's delicious mashed potatoes, my brother in law's mouth watering turkey, and my mom's cranberry salad. There is something about this traditional Thanksgiving meal that grounds me and makes me feel like I am home. Jen Tilley from How to Simplify, created a virtual Thanksgiving meal that not only will have your mouth watering, but wishing it was Thanksgiving every day.

The turkey is usually the star of the Thanksgiving meal, but for me, it's all about the sides. For our family, Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without green beans.

The main dish in this virtual meal is Rosemary Roast Turkey. Rosemary is a great herb that adds so much flavor to meat during the cooking process. If the picture of this turkey doesn't make you want to try it, then you are going to just have to take our word for it. To make this recipe, click here.
