My "First" Thanksgiving and a Recipe Round-Up!
I get to host Thanksgiving dinner for the first time!
I am beyond excited, y'all. It's taken me a long time to get T to understand how important things like this are to me. I still don't think he quite *gets* it, but it means the world to me to be able to stay home this year and make some fun memories with our girls. T's extended family is wonderful, but I am glad to be able to do things my way this time!
My brother, Jamie, and his wife, "SuSu" (as my girls call her), will mostly likely be joining us. I'm hoping T's youngest brother and sister will also celebrate Thanksgiving at our house. I'm anticipating a nice, quiet day for the guys to watch football while the girls watch the parade and cook.
Speaking of cooking....I think SuSu has the turkey covered, and I have a great dressing recipe (that's stuffing in a pan for my "Yankee" readers). And that's pretty much where things end.
I was hoping you all could help me out, so I'm hosting a Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up!
Link up your best Thanksgiving/family recipes, tips, and tricks. Anything related to Thanksgiving will do. You can link up an old post, or write something new. I'll leave the linky up until Friday and hopefully we'll have a nice little resource fair going on here.
If you'd like to use my button or a link back to me, that would be nice, but not required.
Join the party here!
Thanks for helping a Thanksgiving hostess newbie out!
