Best Thanksgiving Sides Recipes: This is my collection of ideas and recipes for Thanksgiving or Thanksgiving. In the USA the Thanksgiving Day or the Turkey Day is celebrated, the last Thursday of each November, in Canada it is also celebrated the second Monday of each October. In recent years this celebration has been expanding, partly by Americans who live outside the country and take the tradition to other countries. Another reason (in my opinion) to explain his growing popularity is because who does not like the idea of a party with family/friends, with delicious food, and with the reason to give thanks for all the blessings we have. Here are some suggestions and recipe ideas for your Thanksgiving menu, from appetizers and snacks to the traditional roast turkey and other main courses, also ideas for desserts and options to use leftovers from the turkey. And of course, most of these recipes have a Latin touch to celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday with a taste of ours.
