Do holidays strain your family sanity? Each year before the holidays begin, my husband and I have the “expectation” talk. We learned to have the talk while attending a young couples class years ago. We were learning how to best communicate; talking through our expectations proved very helpful. Before Thanksgiving, we discuss our expectations for the holiday. We’re totally honest. Maybe he needs to have some quiet time each day with a good book, maybe I want to sit as a family and watch a movie, or he wants to hang out with some friends – whatever it is, we’re honest and share our expectations. We even have a code word for it. We call it a “Clear Request.” Then we go into the holiday knowing how we can best serve each other. During the traveling, long waits, and family gatherings, we each know what our spouse is hoping for. It’s one way we try to be considerate of one another. We now have this talk before vacations (life-saver!!), big events, and sometimes even before a long weekend.
Since I’ve continued eating a grain-free diet, I wanted to find a way to include dressing on our Thanksgiving table. I’d also been missing biscuits, so I tested for a few days until I was able to create a biscuit recipe that didn’t make me miss grain. Then I combined it with my favorite dressing ingredients. So really you get two for one here. The biscuits are incredible. Buttery, flaky, and absolutely perfect with some butter and jam. When dried and combined with the onions, sage and butter, you’ve got a dressing recipe that will meet everyone’s expectations!
