6 Delicious and Easy Thanksgiving Side Dishes


6 Delicious and Easy Thanksgiving Side Dishes

It’s Thanksgiving week!! I bet most of you are all geared up for that. 

Basically, during Thanksgiving, there are two different groups of people. Those who are excited to cook for Thanksgiving and then there are those who are excited just at the thought of stuffing themselves with the yummiest of food. I am a participant of both the groups.

Anyways, it has been quite a while hasn’t it? So many things have been happening from my end from the time my brother was hospitalized and more recently, my grandma passed away. She was a woman of extreme strength, someone who was always perfect in so many ways.  A kind old lady who was loved by so many people and it showed till the day she passed away and the days after that. She was very giving and whatever lesson she passed on to me and my mom would deeply be remembered, be it the recipes she shared or her meticulous ways of doing things. I know she is at a better place now and I kind of believe that she and dad must be hanging out together over some tea. ????

So back to Thanksgiving. While the turkey is arguably the center of attention at the Thanksgiving table, the sides are just as important. To survive the cooking marathon, I thought I should share these 6 Delicious and Easy Thanksgiving Side Dishes. These dishes require very little effort yet these dishes would still impress and please your guests. 

:ONE: Let’s start with these Delicious Garlic Roasted Potatoes. How can you go wrong with garlic and potatoes and that too roasted? 10 minutes of prep time only folks. WIN

:SIX: This is my personal favourite. You basically just throw in a bunch of vegetables of your choice to make these Grilled Vegetables with Balsamic Vinaigrette. They are perfect with everything, be it lamb, chicken or even seafood. Even on its own, these are ultra-comforting.   Grilled vegetables with balsamic vinaigrette
