GRIT offers recipes and turkey tips for a delightful Thanksgiving feast. The recipes include Perfect Roast Turkey, Turkey with Vegetable Medley Stuffing, Roasted-garlic Mashed Potatoes and the traditional Green Bean Casserole. The tips offer a helping hand for choosing the right bird, eating sensibly and holiday planning.

Staffers at our sister publication MOTHER EARTH NEWS have put together a page of MOTHER’s best for their Welcome to Our (Sustainable) Thanksgiving Table. You’ll find articles on Better Birds, Meatless Meals, Traditional Thanksgiving Foods, Holiday Drinks and more.

THE HERB COMPANION, another of GRIT’s sister publications, offers 10 Thanksgiving Day Recipes, a compilation of Pilgrim-inspired recipes from frequent contributor Kris Wetherbee. Try Whole Roasted Salmon with Fennel & Rosemary, Marjoram-Infused Winter Squash Bisque, or Baked Stuffed Apples, among others.

The Food Channel has posted a turkey-day menu on its website. You'll find a cornucopia of fantastic ideas for your feast, plus a day-by-day timeline to help you remain on schedule and calm amid the hectic holiday swirl.
