Thanksgiving, Southern Belle Style

20 Nov

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays.  For me, it is all about being with close friends and family, enjoying the people you love and feeding them well.  I grew up in the kitchens of some amazing cooks, and these women shaped me.  I learned that women can be beautiful and smart and capable all while whippin up the best Sweet Potato Pie you’ll ever eat, in heels, with their finest Sunday dress on, all while laughing and telling stories.

I also attribute my love for football and strong men on Thanksgiving.  In all my years, I have seen the most spirited debates over football, politics and racing on this holiday.  We got to callin it The Great Debate – the time these men spend in the living room, drinking their scotch or beer, eating all the yummy snacks sent out of the kitchen, timed perfectly of course.

For this Southern Belle, my Thanksgiving menu is about memories, legacy and a little adventure.  Here’s what I am cookin up this week.  Each recipe will be showcased here, and I will be available Wednesday from noon to 5pm MST, Thursday from 8am to 2pm MST, via Twitter, Facebook or Skype for last minute ideas, tips and tricks!

Spinach Salad with Fresh Strawberries and Bacon… #ItsWhatsForDinner

30 Oct

This is a wonderful fallback salad when you are not sure what to have for dinner. I used organic spinach leaves, freshly cooked bacon and sliced strawberries. The finishing touch was a drizzle of Basil Olive Oil and Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar. So yummy with the salty and sweet flavors and gone in seconds. I did have to share a few times with the hubby, but I didn’t mind too much. Anytime I can get him to eat something other than a burger, I have won the battle!
