Our Untraditional Thanksgiving Feast

uacreativephoto- Thanksgiving Feast


You have your traditions and we have ours. We took time before all the holiday craziness to have our own Thanksgiving feast together with some of our favorite foods. Not your traditional turkey dinner to say the least but that’s not the point of Thanksgiving right!? And anyways, who doesn’t love a roasted chicken, homemade minestrone soup, and sushi all on one plate!?… right? Yeah, maybe that doesn’t sound too appetizing, but try it anyway!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

1 Tbsp olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced
