Ace at the Beach - Thanksgiving Recipe

Thanksgiving day is always full of delicious food, spending time with family, and traditions that have been passed down for years. In my family, we spend Thanksgiving all together and enjoy a relaxing day (usually full of a lot of football too!) 

I am here to highlight my favorite parts of thanksgiving and tell you how I like to celebrate Turkey day! 

Getting dressed up: I always use the excuse of Thanksgiving to wear a fun outfit! This year I decided to wear some cheetah print tights with a leather skirt and sweater! Perfectly cozy yet fun! I layered up lots of my favorite jewelry to complete my look. I am never fully dressed without my La Luna Rose jewels! 

Favorite foods: I am a dessert girl but as far as the dinner part I love green bean casserole, here’s my favorite recipe for it below! (From delish.com)

Delicious Vegetarian Thanks Giving Dish by Alden Easter

Ingredients: 

1 lb. green beans, trimmed

6 tbsp. butter, divided

1 onion, sliced into half moons

8 oz. sliced mushrooms

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 c. flour

3 c. whole milk

1 1/2 c. French's fried onions

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare an ice bath: In a large pot of boiling water, add green beans and cook until bright green, about 6 minutes. With a slotted spoon or tongs, quickly transfer green beans to ice bath to cool, then drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  • In a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until mushrooms are golden, about 5 minutes more. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute, then transfer mixture to green bean bowl.
  • In same skillet over medium heat, melt remaining 4 tablespoons butter. Whisk in flour and cook until golden, about 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in milk and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat, then add green bean mixture and toss until even combined.
  • Bake until warmed through and bubbling, about 30 minutes.
  • Top with fried onions and bake 5 minutes more. 

My favorite dessert is the pecan pie, my family always buys it from our favorite local bakery but you could easily get creative in the kitchen and make your own! 

Alden Easter Thanksgiving Vegetarian Recipe and Outfit

Traditions:

In my family a big tradition is going around in a circle and talking about what you’re thankful for. This is always fun to reflect on the good things in your life and also gives you a chance to look back on your year! It helps make the day joyful when you sit and talk about the things you’re thankful to have in life. 

One thing I am thankful for this year is being in good health and having friends who live near and far from me that I have the opportunity to go visit! 

Thanksgiving day is such a treat. It leaves you with full bellies and many memories that make you look forward to the holiday all year long!

No matter where you are, Thanksgiving can be a fun day to celebrate and a good time to bring your family together!  

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!  Love Ace x

10 ways on how to strive for a Plastic Free Christmas

Luna & Rose Christmas Plastic Free Packaging Gift IdeasI know. We hate the excess of packaging too. That’s why all of our packaging used to create, ship and protect our items at Luna & Rose is done to the absolute minimum and is completely sustainable and biodegradable. But we know that not all brands and businesses have a heart for the Earth like we do! While stores are getting much better at asking if you want a bag with that and changing their bags from plastic to be biodegradable or paper… its still all just waste at the end of the day right? So the best thing that we can do to avoid all this waste in the first place?
