People get all riled up about the bird on Thanksgiving, but I’m really in it for the side dishes. I usually take a slice or two of turkey and then load up on my favorites: cornbread dressing, twice baked potato casserole, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, and of course, my father in law’s famous homemade rolls. Only 16 days until can dig in! Here are some side dishes that I’m thankful for this year- many thanks to my blogger friends for sharing!
