Happy Thanksgiving, fans! I thought about a long post about family and friends and how food brings us all together…. but who has time for that?! Let’s keep it simple. I’m all in for a good meal, but I need a good drink to start. Let’s begin there…
ADULTS-ONLY Caramel Apple Cider
1/2 gallon apple cider
2 cups caramel flavored vodka
Heat on low and serve to every family member.
Then, here are some quick sides to add to your festivities:

I’ve never made a turkey in a crock pot. But I have roasted a chicken, so if you only need to serve 2-4 people, pick a different bird and try this instead: http://dinnerisacrock.com/2010/03/12/crock-pot-roasted-chicken/ This link also includes my curried chicken salad which is an excellent idea for your turkey leftovers, too!
Wishing you and yours a happy and festive celebration. Now pass me some of that apple cider!
