Thanksgiving Side Dish Roundup & a Wüsthof Giveaway
Posted Nov 13 2012 9:31am
Can you believe Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK? Not a few weeks from now or a month away anymore. IT’S NEXT WEEK. Are you hosting your own shindig this year? Having a cozy dinner for two at home? Going to watch your mom or in-laws cook while you drink? All are totally acceptable options in my opinion. If you’re making the feast or bringing some sides, I decided to give you a roundup of some of my all time favorite Thanksgiving side dishes, most of which are light and easy on the waistline and a chance to win a fancy new Wüsthof knife! But, before we get to that, we’re going to talk food.
Sides are my favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal. Yes, I love me some turkey and pie, but I always load up on sides. Luckily for you (and my scale), these sides are all lower in fat and calories, so you can have double servings for the same nutritional breakdown as one serving of the regular stuff.
Phew! Are you drooling yet? And can you tell I’m absurdly obsessed with mac n’ cheese? Even though I could eat only side dishes for the rest of my life, I know you can’t have a proper Thanksgiving meal without a turkey (or a vegan substitute).
Now, roasting a turkey is the easy part. The hardest part? CARVING IT! I was the world’s worst turkey carver (just ask my husband) and this is really due to the fact we didn’t have a proper carving knife! Well, that was until the amazing folks at Wüsthof sent me one to review and give away to you!
Guys, this knife IS A DREAM! The hollow ground edges make the perfect thin slice and the oval depressions make for an even cut, with no messy pieces or strings left behind. With this knife, your turkey will be so beautifully carved, people will ask if you work in a butcher shop. I can’t carve anything to save my life and with this knife? I’m a badass in the carving department.
SO GUESS WHAT? One of you lucky readers will get this beautiful Wüsthof Grand Carving knife (a $125 value) FOR FREE just in time for Thanksgiving! AWESOME RIGHT? Just enter the prompts below by Friday at midnight! Good luck!
