Are you ready? Thanksgiving is coming…. do those words make you excited or stressed? I love Thanksgiving, but it is a TON of work. There is also a lot of pressure for this holiday to be spot on with the food, amiright? You could mess up Easter dinner, or a labor day cook out, and no one would really care. But  if you mess up Thanksgiving, it feels like you are messing up big. I don’t know, maybe no one does really care (I mean, if they did, they could always go out and buy their own turkey and make it the next day, right?) so maybe all this pressure is just self inflicted. 

Either way, you want your food to be good and not too much work. That’s where these biscuits come in! They are easier then most because you just drop them in to muffin cups. They come together really fast and would make excellent leftover turkey sandwich makins’!

So look, let’s just all take a step back and chill this Thanksgiving. The pressure doesn’t need to be there. I used to want to do everything myself when it came to holiday meals, but since having a kid I’ve learned what “enough” is. It’s enough to host dinner – you don’t have to cook it all. It’s enough to make one pie – you don’t need two. Whatever you decide to do this Thanksgiving, breathe deep and know that “it’s enough.” 

Although I will say that just one of these biscuits is not enough, haha. You’ll need at least two. 😉
