I'm pleased as punch to be hosting this year...we're going with my nice dishes, good crystal, and a tablecloth!
My sis-in-law and nephew are coming by tomorrow morning to watch the parade with the girls and me while T and my brother go out shooting. We'll have some cinnamon rolls and apple cider as a parade treat. No lunch plans, maybe a sandwich to tide the girls over...but the real show starts at 4 pm: Thanksgiving Dinner!
My mother-in-law is sharing some of the cooking responsibilities with me. That makes things so much easier, doesn't it?
Fried Turkey (in-laws)
Smoked Turkey (in-laws)
Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes
Roasted Butternut Squash
Sausage Stuffing (you can find my recipe here)
Sweet Potatoes (in-laws)
Green Beans (in-laws)
Homemade Pumpkin Pie
I'd say we're looking good! I'll be preparing a lot of these dishes today and prepping them to go in the oven tomorrow. I love make-ahead items. My in-laws, T's grandma, and his work friend will be joining us tomorrow. Should make for a delightful meal. We have a lot to be thankful for!
What's on your Thanksgiving Menu?
