I don’t know about you, but side dishes kind of get the shaft at my house. Not that I don’t love a good side dish, but there just isn’t enough time and energy in the day to prepare a main course, deal with tired, hungry, cranky kids and prepare 2-3 amazing and complicated sides as well. That’s what Thanksgiving is for, right? Usually I focus on the main dish, and if I need extra sides, they tend to be really simple.
