Thanksgiving Dinner Menu Ideas - Spicy Pumpkin Dip

Even though I’ve been working hard on my new meal planner and Christmas cards, I haven’t forgotten about Thanksgiving!

The Thanksgiving dinner menu is right up there with being grateful and it can’t be taken lightly.

People wait all year long for some of the special foods served only at their family celebrations. And while, everyone has their favorites, it’s always fun to try something new, right?

Spicy Pumpkin dip is one of those “new” recipes, the girls and I tried one year and we loved it. We made it several times over the years when it wasn’t even Thanksgiving because it was that good.  But, somehow, it’s been shoved aside for other favorite treats and it’s been a long time since we’ve made it.

We celebrate the holiday at my parents house, therefore getting out of the majority of the cooking. But, the girls and I always make a few things to bring along and this year, I’m adding this dip back onto our Thanksgiving dinner menu.

Spicy Pumpkin Dip only requires 3 simple ingredients that you can find at any grocery store and in less than 5 minutes, it’s on the table, ready to be enjoyed.

Try it…you’ll love it!
