Thanksgiving Side Dish Roundup & a Wüsthof Giveaway [CLOSED]
Can you believe Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK?? Not a few weeks from now or a month away anymore. IT’S NEXT WEEK. Are you hosting your own shindig this year? Having a cozy dinner for two at home? Going to watch your mom or in-laws cook while you drink? All are totally acceptable options in my opinion. If you’re making the feast or bringing some sides, I decided to give you a roundup of some of my all time favorite Thanksgiving side dishes, most of which are light and easy on the waistline and a chance to win a fancy new Wüsthof knife! But, before we get to that, we’re going to talk food.
Sides are my favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal. Yes, I love me some turkey and pie, but I always load up on sides. Luckily for you (and my scale), these sides are all lower in fat and calories, so you can have double servings for the same nutritional breakdown as one serving of the regular stuff.
Green bean pasta with gorgonzola cream
Mashed potatoes with kale and garlic
Creamy garlic vegan mashed potatoes
Crock pot honey and balsamic carrots
Light confetti corn with bacon
Roasted butternut squash risotto
Creamy butternut squash mac n’ cheese
Broccoli with roasted new potatoes
Slow cooker carrot and ginger soup
Phew! Are you drooling yet? And can you tell I’m absurdly obsessed with mac n’ cheese? Even though I could eat only side dishes for the rest of my life, I know you can’t have a proper Thanksgiving meal without a turkey (or a vegan substitute).
Now, roasting a turkey is the easy part. The hardest part? CARVING IT! I was the world’s worst turkey carver (just ask my husband) and this is really due to the fact we didn’t have a proper carving knife! Well, that was until the amazing folks at Wüsthof sent me one to review and give away to you!
Guys, this knife IS A DREAM! The hollow ground edges make the perfect thin slice and the oval depressions make for an even cut, with no messy pieces or strings left behind. With this knife, your turkey will be so beautifully carved, people will ask if you work in a butcher shop. I can’t carve anything to save my life and with this knife? I’m a badass in the carving department.
SO GUESS WHAT? One of you lucky readers will get this beautiful Wüsthof Grand Carving knife (a $125 value) FOR FREE just in time for Thanksgiving! AWESOME RIGHT? Just enter the prompts below by Friday at midnight! Good luck!
*If you are chosen, you have 72 hours to respond to my email asking for your address. If you do not respond, you forfeit the winnings to the next person. It’s only fair!

Thanks for all the amazing recipes! :)
I could so use the exquisite carving knife...as my present ones are barely suitable for slicing butter..and I have been fantasizing about "feeding" a 30 pound turkey into my food processor's feeding tube for even, suitable slices...Oh my..yes..THAT pathetic!
