Brett and I are hosting Thanksgiving dinner here.   My parents, grandma, and brother will be arriving the day of so it’s up to me and my sister-in-law Kimi to do the cooking.  She’s already offered to do the rolls.  Whew.  Her rolls are a labor of love.  I love her. 

My goal is to keep dinner really simple. Here’s what I’m thinking– 

♦ The bird = two turkey breast roasts from Costco.  One will be roasted in the oven, and the other one grilled.  Really excited about grilling a turkey!

♦ Rolls = homemade by my SIL!

♦ The sides =  mashed ‘taters, sweet ‘taters, stuffing, and these simple Roasted Garlic & Herb Buttered Green Beans.

Side note-  I don’t love classic green bean casserole.  It’s just not my must-have Thanksgiving side dish (that would be the stuffing).   

But I do love green beans, so I made these super simple green beans that are much lighter, healthier and have great flavor! I simply sautéed green beans in Private Selection’s new Roasted Garlic & Herb Finishing Butter and topped them with toasted almonds. 

I tell my kids the green beans are green french fries and they fall for it every time.

Don’t think I forgot about dessert.   There will of course be dessert- I’m thinking Razzleberry Pie (Marie Calendar’s- it’s my dad’s favorite!), pumpkin pie, and banana cream elcair pie 

Sounds simple enough right?  Now to make my grocery list and get shopping!

  2. Nancy Mason says:

    oooo…these do sound yummy. Wish I had a Kroeger near by. My son has one in Durham NC so I may ask him to check out these butters.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. We thought about grilling out turkey this year, but decided we’d try it on a day that it didn’t matter! :) These green beans look like the perfect Thanksgiving side!
