Then pecan, pumpkin, chocolate and apple pies with coffee...I cannot wait!

For desert, sweet potatoe pie, death by chocolate cake, peach cobbler and cookies for the kids because w usually put the Christmas tree up and snack on cookies while we're decorating. family comes from all over and I usually cook for 2 days to prepare for their arrival.

  • Small Turkey Breast, corn bread dressing, mash potatoes, green beans ,corn chowder, sweet potatoes,cole slaw, rolls, and pumpkin pie, and an apple pie. This yr I might make some butternut squash too. I don't make a huge amount of everything, just enough so we don't have a ton of leftovers, and we invite friends that don't have a lot of family to join us.

  • I make everything, from appetizers to dessert. I love making Thanksgiving dinner!

    Apps: a plate of crudites (carrots, celery, cherry tomatoes, etc and ranch dip), stuffed mushrooms, and deli meats/cheeses/ crackers/bread with spinach dip.

    Main course: Roasted turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, mashed candied sweet potatoes, stuffing, corn, rolls, homemade cranberry sauce...Sometimes I'll throw in a green salad, lol.

    Dessert: Pumpkin pie and my Jello Poke Cake (raspberry and lime flavored, just in time to get everyone in the spirit for Christmas).
