Maple Cinnamon Baked Pears are good enough for breakfast AND dessert. This recipe calls for minimal ingredients but gives you maximum flavor, and makes your house smell like Fall!
Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving this year?? I swear, every year the holidays creep up quicker and quicker. I’m really not complaining as this is my favorite time of year, but this year it really blew my mind that we’re already nearing the end of November!
This is the first Thanksgiving I’m spending with my parents in a while now that they’ve moved back down to Oregon, and I. Am. Stoked! We contemplated keeping it really simple and ordering pizza or something like that so that we could spend more time playing games, but this is the one day out of the year where the holiday is based solely on dinner. And, who could say no to mashed potatoes and stuffing?? They are the best part of Thanksgiving, ya know. 🙂
Maybe we’ll keep Christmas dinner simple. One year my parents made enchiladas and I almost cried. It just felt so weird to not be having a traditional Christmas meal, but after 28 years I think I’m ready for a change in our traditions. Does anyone else do something completely untraditional but really easy for Christmas dinner? I definitely understand the appeal of not having a bunch of dishes and being able to spend more time with family instead of cooking.
What are you in charge of bringing this Thanksgiving?
Let me know in the comments! I won’t be making these Maple Cinnamon Baked Pears because the desserts are already handled, but I will be bringing an appetizer tray and a green salad. I have never put together an appetizer tray before but I have to admit that I have been completely enamored by Pinterest pics of appetizer trays lately. They look so beautiful, and so…appetizing!
