Must-Have Dishes for Your Thanksgiving Table

November 19th, 2018 The Loved Ones Desk Uncategorized

Thanksgiving is almost here, and if you haven’t started planning your menu for the big day, what are you waiting for? If it’s your first time hosting Thanksgiving, you’ll want to make sure you have the “must-haves” at your dinner table. That’s where we can help!


This is one of the most basic dishes you’ll need at Thanksgiving. Since a common issue people find with turkey is that it can be dry, you can brine your bird in salt water for a day or two before cooking it to help make it moist.

This recipe shows you how to easily brine your turkey for a delicious main course.


You have a lot of options here. We suggest you go for three main types of potato dishes (pick one, pick three — it’s up to you).

Mashed Potatoes

These are a true classic. A nice bowl of creamy mashed potatoes is the perfect comfort food for a cold Thanksgiving day.

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes have taken the holiday dinner world by storm. Between their delicious taste and real health benefits (barring you don’t add too much butter) these are sure to please everyone at the table.

Green Beans

With all the indulgence, you need a bit of green on your plate. Steamed green beans or green bean casseroles are always people pleasers.


Last but not least, every good Thanksgiving needs a dish of stuffing. You can go with traditional stuffing or cornbread stuffing — that way you provide guests with a little more variety.


When it comes to keeping your senior relatives happy and healthy, you can trust the professional caregivers at Loved Ones. With our “never alone” promise, you can rest assured that your loved ones will receive the best care possible.
