You’re going to confuse US bees who don’t know we have a different Thanksgiving :p

I’ll be finishing up my last area exam for my PhD, so I will be making a phone call to order pizza 😉

Ordinarily, we would do turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes baked with marshmellows on top, some kind of green veggie, gravy, and pumpkin pie (to my SO’s disgust).

That is really funny. I am just trying to make it through October to our wedding, so it has been stressing me out to hear family start talking about Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then I saw this thread and thought, “Some people even know what they’re making already?!” We don’t even know yet where we will be! (Thanksgiving in the U.S. is on Nov. 22 this year). hahaha

(And actually, I saw this brownie pecan pie recipe the other day and I think it is a likely contender for our contribution).

Have a happy Thanksgiving! Smile

I will go to my future in-laws for dinner but I will bring homemade bread and pumpkin spice bundt cake. The day after is kitty thanksgiving and I will prepare a turkey – for my cats!

I really hope that by the time thanksgiving rolls around here, I’ll be well enough to make something – I haven’t cooked dinner in like a month because the smell of any food makes me ill. But usually I make some pretty awesome redskin garlic mashed potatoes.

Thanksgiving here is also right on the edge of when I may get to find out what I’m having, so if that happens maybe I’ll do a fun gender reveal cake for dessert.

I’m going to my aunt’s, but I think I’ll make some sort of dessert.  posting in hopes somebody here has a great idea.  She’s already making pumpkin and apple pie, but DH and I aren’t big pie fans.

I’m bringing Pumpkin Nut Chiffon Pie- way better than traditional pumpkin pie- much lighter after a big dinner.

http://www.nytimes.com/recipes/10270/Pumpkin-Chiffon-Pie-With-Ginger-Nut-Crust.html

I’m also in charge of the table decor so have been thrifting like crazy. I found 3 matching brown cloths with napkins, 8 little white pottery bud vases with a notch to hold a placecard, cylinder vases that I am going to layer with various colored lentils and dried beans and top with a candle,  a set of matching transferware dessert plates to layer on top of the napkins.I also made a bib for the baby that will be there. It is brown on one side with a cute Thanksgiving  themed iron on applique “Gobble till you Wobble” and orange on the other with a cute Halloween transfer.

I also did a project for the kids that will attend. I got the idea from Pinterest but forgot to pin it so can’t give you the link. You print off a pic of the top of a pumpkin pie and glue that to the round cardboard lid from a Chinese takeout container. Fill the container with little gifts for the kids, put the lid on and set at their places at the table. They think they are getting their own pie.

@AB Bride:  ooh good idea – roasted white potatoes and mashed sweet – that sorts out the conflict DH and I were having about which is better lol!!

 

Any other veggies?
