What would you bring to a family Thanksgiving dinner?

We were invited by my husband's family to join them for Thanksgiving 2 hours away. They Don't do a traditional dinner and I don''t know what they are going to make. They say it's not necessary for us to bring something but I would really like to. Any suggestions on what we should bring??

  • Hot buttered rum... the kids can drink it with out the rum. It is a wonderful little treat for them to take home. 1lb butter, 1lb brown sugar, 1lb powder sugar, 1 carton REAL vanilla ice cream... melt, mix WELL, refreze. I package mine up in tupper ware with a bow.

    To serve put one very generous spoonful into boiling water... add rum if you like.

    oh... btw...this is NOT low cal.

  • Spiced apple cider. Its always gone by the end of the night at my house. It's easy too. Buy 1-2 gallons of apple cider, depending on how many people. Put it in a larger (4-6qt) crock pot or stock pot. Add in 2 cinnamon sticks and 4 whole cloves, and cut strips of peel off a orange (make sure you don't get the pith-- the white stuff--just the zest). Add all that in the crock pot with the apple cider. Cook on low for a few hours til nice and warm, then turn on to keep warm. If you're doing it in a stock pot, just turn the heat to low and stir it occasionally. It can go with many types of foods as well as dessert, and if adults want to add a little bit of alcohol, bring along a bottle of apple brandy!
