Three Course Dinner for Special Guests

Trisha's D

Hello Everyone!

I’ve got something very special for you.  If you are looking for an entire dinner that will dazzle your dinner guests, look no further.

To begin, a delicious and healthy salad your guests will love. Next, one of the best chicken dishes I’ve ever prepared.

Better yet, you place the chicken on top of a tasty potato dish. Both are then covered with a wonderful white wine sauce.

Your guests will love this dinner.

Thanksgiving Salad Recipes


As I began to plan my Thankgiving Dinner this year, I decided to change things up a bit. As traditional as I am (there are some traditional dishes I will never give up), I love trying new recipes and introducing family and friends to wonderful new taste treats. Here are the recipes for a cranberry salad and an apple salad, either of which will go very nicely with your holiday meal.    

Simply click on the link for each recipe.
