happy thanksgiving

If you’re in charge of the Thanksgiving Feast this year and are still not prepared, boy have you stumbled onto the right blog! It’s crunch time and if you still have to throw some dishes together go store-bought. Yep, you still have time to run to the market, buy premade items and dress them up - your guests will never know they came from the market.

Mash Potatoes – Grab a box off mash potatoes and go! Whip-up the potatoes as instructed on the box, add some low-fat sour cream and freshly chopped chives to your potatoes and whola, you have one tasty treat! Or stir in some bacon and sharp cheddar to give the potatoes a delicious twist.

Gravy - If you need to make gravy on the go, buy a bottle or grab a few packets in the store. Jazz up your grocery gravy by sautéing garlic, onions and finely diced mushrooms in a frying pan with a little oil. Once this little concoction is complete, stir into your gravy and serve – deeeeeeelic!

Rolls - Don’t have time to make homemade rolls? Grab premade rolls at the store and top them with a buttery delight:

  • Blend whipped butter with chopped herbs and minced garlic and brush on the rolls
  • Create a cranberry-walnut-spread with butter, toasted walnuts and a few pinches of cinnamon
  • Blend whipped butter and finely chopped lemon zest for a lemon twist

Side Dish - Need a side dish in a flash?! Buy a bag of frozen green beans and add a little palette punch:

  • Toasted sliver almonds
  • Caramelized onions
  • Olive oil and parmesan cheese
  • Sprinkle of your favorite seasoning

Shea Apartment Living wishes all of our residents and families a relaxing and Happy Thanksgiving. We hope you fill your bellies with some delicious Thanksgiving dinner!
