This year will my second year hosting my family's Thanksgiving dinner.  I am loving my new role as the hostess of the traditional family Thanksgiving, but I am all about making it as easy & stress-free (& delicious) as possible for myself.  I mean, who wants to be stuck sweating in the kitchen, fretting that everything will not get done in time due to a shortage of oven space?  Not >>this girl<<.  ;)

I want to be the hostess sipping on a cranberry mimosa while the turkey rests and most of the sides are deliciously nestled in a couple of slow cookers, keeping warm...
Okay, maybe me as the hostess casually sipping on a cranberry mimosa is a bit of a daydream (but it could happen, right??), but who says I can't have a couple of those side dishes staying warm in a couple of crock pots?  

A couple of weeks ago, I set out to track down the best slow cooker Thanksgiving side dishes on the web.  I am talking most of these are dump everything in, come back & stir once or twice, and in a few hours... bam! Thanksgiving side dishes! :)  
You will be up early anyways getting that turkey going, so you had might as well start a couple of side dishes in some slow cookers.  (Only have one crock pot?  Ask family & friends for one you can borrow for the day! I am using my sister's in addition to my own for this year's Thanksgiving dinner.)

Ready for slow cooked deliciousness that will save oven space, time, and most certainly your sanity?
