Why wont she tell you?? That makes it so much harder to decide!

What about baked mashed potatoes? You can prepare ahead and throw them in the oven at your mom’s. I use a recipe from Giada de Laurentiis called Baked Mashed Potatoes w/parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs (google it, Food Network is blocked at work so I can’t send you link)

And then maybe something easy like a salad? I’d just bring a bag of greens, slivered almonds, blue cheese crumbles, and a bottle of dressing and assemble it there.

I’d do an appetizer and a dessert–that way it doesn’t really have to match the entree.  My favorite apps are spinach/artichoke dip and bread or pigs in a blanket (no one wants to own up, but everyone loves them).  For dessert, maybe a batch of brownies with festive frosting and sprinkles or special cookies?

I think acorn squash is an easy/delicious winter dish to share!
