Mangia Mondays:: Tried and True Side Dishes


How appropriate that Veteran's Day falls during the month of giving thanks.

I am so grateful to my family, friends, neighbors across the country who have sacrificed so much for the safety and freedom of our country.

Thank you to our United States Veterans!

and the country grand they wrought for,

is their monument to-day, and for aye.

Thank you veterans :)
And thank you Lisa. I'm always at a loss when it comes to side dishes. We always make the same things over and over again. I'll be trying the ones on your list.
