Easy Thanksgiving Side Dish ~ Buttery Carrots

If you’re looking for a delicious side dish to serve with your Thanksgiving meal, look no further! These super simple, very delicious carrots will enhance any meal, and your kids will eat them!

Easy Thanksgiving Side Dish ~ Buttery Carrots

To prepare, simply julienne 5 large carrots. Melt 3-4 TBS butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add carrots and saute for 15-20 minutes. I prefer a slightly crunchy carrot, so I tend to under cook mine. {I have been accused of being a little weird, though.} You cook them as long as you’d like. Season with salt and pepper and serve!

Thanksgiving Menu

 

I realized a couple of days ago that Thanksgiving is next week already. I’ve been in living in cave for the last couple of weeks since my daughter’s surgery. Fortunately, some lovely friends came over today for a delightful afternoon and I’m feeling a little more inspired to tackle life! I finally decided it’s time to start thinking about the Thanksgiving menu.

This year marks a new adventure in Thanksgiving meals for our extended family. In previous years, we’ve either been far away from all family and have enjoyed lovely meals with military friends, or I’ve hosted one or both sets of parents (pre-kids). Since we moved to Iowa in 2006, though, we’ve always had Thanksgiving at my husband’s Grandpa and Step-Grandma’s house. His grandpa died last year, however, and his Step-Grandma isn’t able to host the enormous group that the two families were in her new apartment. So we won’t have the big extended Thanksgiving we’ve had for the last 5 years.

Instead, we’re enjoying Thanksgiving at my Mother-in-Law’s house. We’ll have my daughter in a spica cast and her 10-year-old cousin who has hip dysplasia surgery on both hips tomorrow and will be in a wheelchair. Sara is in fine spirits after her surgery and I hope her cousin will be doing well by next week, too.

None of that has anything to do with my Thanksgiving Menu, I guess, but I felt like writing it! 🙂 I won’t be making all of these dishes this year, but this is my standard Thanksgiving fare when I am in charge of the meal. I’ll be sharing some of the recipes in the next few days:
