Thanksgiving Potluck Lunch Recipes

Whether you’re participating in an office potluck or simply getting together with friends or family members a bit early, why not give thanks for, and celebrate, last year’s harvest more than once? Sure, there will always be turkey and gravy in just about any meal that revolves around Thanksgiving and truthfully, those items can get a bit redundant. But those aren’t the only two things that make this holiday delicious. See below for a few festive lunch ideas that are anything but boring. 

1 - Herbed Cheese Ball

This is the perfect appetizer for a small to medium sized group. You’ll need roughly 8oz goat cheese, 8oz cream cheese, fresh parsley, chives, thyme, lemon zest, salt & pepper, toasted pine nuts and a sliced baguette or your favorite crackers. Recipe here: http://bit.ly/2oVtZ2A 

2 - Pumpkin Soup

Thanksgiving is often synonymous with brisk temperatures and that makes for the perfect setting to enjoy hot soup. A cozy bowl will warm you and your guests right up. Recipe here: http://bit.ly/2WZZ41S

It’s common for folks to believe oysters are only good in the summer, but believe it or not, some of the best oysters are ripe for eating during the fall months. Get the recipe for this rich and delicious side dish, here: http://bit.ly/2Cm0JVR
