I am thinking about Thanksgiving food already! Partly because I’m hungry… and partly because I’ll actually be cooking this year!
My younger sister and I (both newly weds this year) are cooking our first Thanksgiving meal together.
Here is our menu:
- Turkey (of course)
- Green beans
- Garlic mashed potatoes
- Sweet potatoes (not a casserole)
I’m also thinking about adding cous-cous to the menu. Any other suggestions?
What’s on your menu? Are you cooking this year?

@Sunflower–girl: Good call! We definitely have dessert on our menu. We will have pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and pumpkin bars.

SO and I can’t make it home until after Thanksgiving this year, and since it’s my birthday we’re having birthday dinner. Lamb chops with mushrooms, cheesy hashbrown potatoes, a veggie (haven’t decided yet) and pumpkin spice cake.

We always do Thanksgiving at my in-laws and have the same delicious dishes each year which are:
Mashed gold potatoes
Mashed sweet potatoes (which my FIL makes super rich and spicy, SOOO good!)
Green Bean Casserole
Pumpkin pie, apple pie, pecan pie, and my contribution this year: cherry pie with an almond crust!
Oh and of course LOTS of wine!!!!!!!!!!!

What’s for Thanksgiving?
Family dysfunction with a side of alcoholism…I hate my in laws.

Thanksgiving is going to be HUGE this year. I think there will be about thirty people. We’re doing it with all of DH’s extended family on his dad’s side. There will be ALL THE FOOD. His aunt and uncle are farmers, and they’ve actually raised the turkey themselves! I’m pretty excited about it. There will be tons of food, but DH and I are only contributing four things:
-Peanut curry soup
-Mulled apple cider (with rum!)
-…Seaweed salad (hey, I miss my Thanksgivings in Japan, okay? I’ve told everyone that I won’t be offended if they don’t eat the seaweed.)

@GreenEyedMoon: Oh no! I would have a hard time eating a turkey I knew alive. LOL I hope you enjoy it!

@howtobeawife: And this is why I haven’t met said turkey. 🙂

@Nona99: Sorry :-/ My family is dysfunctional, too. This year I tried to avoid the dysfunction on the day of by declining the invite to my real mom’s thanksgiving. She can meet my DH on Saturday instead.
