This Sweet Potato and Sausage Casserole is a perfect dish for Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving and and other fall gathering!

How is Thanksgiving already next week??  This will be a totally different Thanksgiving for us as we will be celebrating it at Matt’s fire house!  Should be super fun to bring a dish and eat with all the fire families. I have always loved Thanksgiving for so many reasons.  I mean spending the day with family, eating ALL the food, and being grateful for all of the wonderful things in our lives… it’s pretty much the best.  Not to mention going to sleep that night is similar to going to sleep on Christmas Eve because Friday morning equals CHRISTMAS DECOR!!  I can’t wait to decorate this year because our Christmas party is just a little over one week after Thanksgiving.

Okay okay let’s make sure we have a super delicious and healthy Thanksgiving before that!    I am soooo excited to be teaming up with my favorite bloggers today for the ultimate paleo thanksgiving menu!  Below is a list covering appetizers, salads, sides, turkey, gravy and dessert – all of the essentials.  I made this epic Sweet Potato & Sausage Casserole that is fabulous as a side for a thanksgiving, or really any night this fall or winter.   So get planning, get shopping, then get get cooking! Oh and pin the image below to share this spread with all your friends!
