Oh yes! My husband is a chef but I chase him out of the kitchen for Thanksgiving. I do not want some fancy odd ball dinner. I make turkey with cornbread dressing. We have green bean cassorole, heavenly sweet potatos with the marshmellows baked on top. Mashed potatos with turnips for a friend who is from New Jersey. We have a fruit salad with poppy seed dressing. I make two pies. One is a lemon chess pie and one is a pumpkin pie. I use to make rolls but I now just buy Sister Shubert's. They are really great if you proof them and let them rise for a bit. I do make cranberry relish from scratch because it is so easy and it is really so yummy. Of course I make a reduction gravy with the pan drippin's with some added chicken stock. Sometimes I make a carrot shallot dish. Sometimes I add fresh corn off the cob to my dressing. Depends on how much time I have and how many are coming for dinner. I can hardly wait. It is my favorite meal of the year. The midnight snacking is the best! My step daughter and I have a tradition of having peanut butter sandwiches for lunch the next day with cranberry sauce instead of jelly.
My family and my fiance's family are sick of turkey and ham... So traditional is out of the question. We will probably be feasting on good steak cooked by my fiance, my home made fudge (grandpa's recipe) his mom's home made backed mac and cheese, and whatever else we think might sound good.
Yeah hon the usual with all the trimmings and deserts,Happy,happy to everyone and not to over eat....enjoy
Well...my sister is in charge this year so I'm not really sure. We will be spending part of the time with my hubby's family so I am sure we'll have the traditional turkey and fixings.
