It’s going to be our first Thanksgiving as a married couple. Sadly, we are not able to go home, so it’s just going to be us three. (me, Darling Husband and the dog.)
Need some ideas.
I know there’s the usual, Turkey, green bean casserole, candied yams, mashed potatoes…
Anyone have a recipee that’s not traditional? (Not that there’s anything wrong with traditional.) 🙂
I would love to try something different.
It would be great if you could post a link to your recipe too!

I have to work that night, so I will be having Chinese food. 😀 So that’s unique. 😀

I was watching Rachel Ray today and she had some good recipes that looked pretty easy… you should definitely check out her website!

We’re not going home for Thanksgiving either 🙁 It’s just me, Mr. Menard, & our puppy!
- Boeuf Bourguignon
- Green Bean Casserole
- Soul Sweet ‘taters (Pioneer Woman)
- Deviled Eggs
- Pumpkin Pie
- Red Velvet Cake (Bakerella)
- Pistachio Torte!
I might skip the Red Velvet Cake and make it when we go home for Christmas. I haven’t quite decided yet.

We always split Thanksgiving with our families, but I always bring my signature side dish –
Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Carmelized Shallots and Pancetta.
Mmm….the first year I made it, my Mom ate half the pan. LOL.

Our Thanksgiving is a full day of eating. First is my parent’s for brunch, they have a huge party after the turkey trot. I always eat bagels with lox, noodle kugel, and mini blinis (but there’s a ton more!). Before I met my husband, my mom would just serve leftovers and a Publix turkey for dinner.
Now I get to go to my in laws house, where they do the traditional turkey, stuffing, yams, potatoes, etc.

@ttn133: We’re doing the exact same thing (plans, not food)! And it’s funny you post this today because I just blogged about our menu this evening too.
