Thanksgiving is the kickoff to the holiday season, and I am excited to team up with Walmart, the sponsors of this blog post to share a simple and delicious Thanksgiving recipe. 

The Autumn salad is the perfect Thanksgiving side dish. It is a combination of delicious fresh vegetables sprinkled with cranberries and walnuts. I think my favorite part of this recipe is that it is super simple! With the Thanksgiving meal being such a huge part of the holiday, having recipes that take minimal effort but provide loads of flavor is essential. Because I can order my groceries online at Walmart, I will spend more time kicking my heels up watching holiday movies instead of cooking in the kitchen.

Ingredients

  • 2 Large Sweet Potatoes (peeled and cubed)
  • 1 1/2 c. Fresh Cranberries
  • 16 oz. Fresh Brussel Sprouts(halved)
  • 1 cup Walnuts
  • 3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp. Salt
  • 1 Tsp. Pepper
  • 1 Tsp. Nutmeg (optional)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400°. On a large baking sheet, place the sweet potatoes, cranberries, and Brussel sprouts. Season as desired with salt, pepper, and nutmeg (optional). Drizzle with olive oil and mix well. Bake for 20 minutes, tossing halfway through. Place walnuts on parchment paper and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for five minutes at 400°. Mix all ingredients together and serve. Makes 8-10 servings.

Caprese Salad

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite lunch ideas.   I love preparing simple dishes that are very tasty and filling.  I must say that my all time favorite lunch is a Caprese Salad.  The combination of fresh tomatoes with basil and mozzarella is simply divine!  It takes approximately two minutes to put together which gives your plenty of time to sit down and enjoy this delicious meal.

When you are looking for a delicious lunch that can be made ahead of time then Spinach Wraps may be the perfect meal for you.  These are so tasty and the crunch so satisfying.   These would also be a fun lunch idea for children.  Such a great way to switch it up from the traditional Peanut butter & Jelly sandwich.   In my YouTube video I show you how to make these wraps.  A must watch if you are interested in some new lunch inspirations.

The Smoothie

Many of us are avid lovers of smoothies.  I love smoothies because they are simple to make, very filling, and you can make endless varieties.  Plus, I love experimenting with different smoothie recipes.  Smoothies are also a great idea for breakfast.  One of my favorite smoothies is the Key Lime Raspberry Smoothie.  The taste is so creamy and delicious, and the bright red color is also very appealing.  Check out my YouTube video if you are interested in seeing how I make this smoothie.

The Soup Sampler

The soup sampler is a great lunch idea for office luncheons or if you have friends over for lunch.  You make three of your favorite soups to give your guest a fun variety to sample.  Add some warm bread and a side salad, and you have the perfect lunch that can feed many.
