Thanksgiving Shopping List

Last week I went over a few different recipes for the big Thursday in November, Thanksgiving!

Below is my grocery list for the following dishes, all serving about 8-10 people, and making 2 pies…because more pie is always better.

Herby Thanksgiving Stuffing
Soft Rolls
Turkey gravy
Cranberry Sauce
Dark Chocolate Pie (watch for the recipe on this delicious pie soon)

I put my groceries lists in order of section to make my shopping trip easier and save me waling back and forth through the store all day, with meat last, so it’s out of the fridge the least amount of time.
-Baking aisle
-Center aisles
