Thanksgiving Day Menu (with Printable Shopping List)


Can’t believe that it is already that time of year. I love the holiday season. There is always something to look forward to. One of my favorite parts about the holidays is baking and cooking.

I know that planning, hosting, and cooking dinner for 8 or more people on Thanksgiving can be very stressful and exhausting. In this post I thought I’d try to make it easier for everyone by creating a Thanksgiving menu and including a combined grocery list for all of these recipes.

I’ve included all print friendly recipes below, including the links. I hope you enjoy them and that this post makes Thanksgiving a little easier this year.

Shopping List

Main Course

Black Lacquered Turkey


I apologize for the picture quality. This was the only one I could find of the Black Lacquered Turkey.

Yes! It is black. But don’t worry, the turkey is not the thing that is burnt. It is the paste that is spread on the turkey. The paste keeps the turkey super moist and flavorful. The paste doesn’t taste bad itself.

My mom has made this several time, after we watched how to make it on the Martha Stewart Show. It is so delicious!

Here is the recipe in 3 parts (sorry, it came that way):

Black Lacquered Turkey (print friendly)

Glazing Paste (print friendly)

Basting Liquid (print friendly)


No picture sadly:( But this stuffing was specifically designed to go with the Black Lacquered Turkey. My mom and I would make this as well. If you love stuffing as much as I do, this is a must try!

Remember, you never have to actually stuff the stuffing in the turkey. It’s just as good in a bowl!

Apple Pie Punch (non-alcoholic)


My mouth is watering! I found this recipe at Frugal Mom eh! I think this is a perfect drink for Thanksgiving! You could even spice it up with Sparkling Apple Cider.
