THE MOSLEY'S MENU FOR THANKSGIVING 2015

 

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

 

It is finally the week of Thanksgiving! During this season of giving and thankfulness, I love to cook a lavish meal (or order a lavish meal – let's be real) and share it with family, friends and neighbors. Since I cannot physically give my Thanksgiving meal to you, my online family, I decided to welcome you to the Mosley’s table by sharing our glorious menu from 2015. Not only did I share the menu but there are recipes too!

 

*I told my mom she did not have to cook the “entire” dinner this year. The asterisk (*) denotes the food we ordered from Wolfgang Puck*.

Question: What should I cook this year? I am vegan so I have to find tasty meals to try! What is your favorite meal to cook? Comment down below! 

Until Next Time,
