The best thing about this time of year is clearly not the weather.  Don’t get me wrong, I love snow, but I prefer it in the mountains versus in my kitchen where my dog thinks it belongs.  No, the best thing about this time of year is all the delicious treats you get to look forward to at Thanksgiving.  Now most of us follow a pretty strict diet from time to time, but certain exceptions are sometimes needed.  

Here are a few ideas if you’re looking to stay on the healthy side as well as my take on the dishes.

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts.  In my opinion these things have come a long way.  As a kid I went through multiple napkins and sneaky moves to hide these things in an attempt to convince people I ate them, now I actually really like them.

Green Bean Casserole.  Made the traditional way this dish can be anything but healthy, but following the idea in the substitute option will make this bad boy healthier and if done correctly, nobody should be able to tell.

Pumpkin Cheddar Muffins.  These aren’t exactly healthy, but I love cheese, goes great on everything.  Also I bought a muffin tin a while back and cooking muffins is easy.

Apple Cider Margaritas.  It’s a margarita recipe, no additional details needed.

Add a main dish to the above and you have yourself a pretty good meal.  Post any links or ideas in comments that are some of your favorites.
