Something Different for Thanksgiving

We've been invited to my IL's house for Thanksgiving. MIL has already said she's got everything covered for dinner and SIL is already bringing two pies. I want to bring something...but something "different."

Any ideas...?

  • Hot Buttered Rum.

    1lb butter, 1lb brown sugar, 1lb powdered sugar, 1 gallon real vannilla ice cream.
    melt all and mix very well........ re freeze.

    put one scoop in a mug, add boiling water, add rum if you would like - good for adults or minus the rum is good for kids.

    totally fat'ning.... totally good.

  • Drinks and appetizers, get involved anyway, don't go empty handed just to make them look good.

  • Do you have a favorite dish from your family's holiday meals? Share part of your heritage with your inlaws.

  • a crock pot with hot apple cider, heat it up with cinnamon sticks and a few orange slices.

    If they drink then put one shot of dark rum in a coffee mug and laddle the rum over it. Dont heat the rum in it or it will evaporate.

  • my whole extended family love my tortilla rollups; mix cream cheese, salsa, green onion, spread on tortillas, roll 'em up, keep in fridge for about 2 hours, slice into "pinwheels", garnish with a little guacamole or paprika. My family asks for them at every event.

  • I would just bring either a good wine, or some appetizers like ham and cream cheese pinwheels, devilled eggs, cheese ball with crackers, etc.

  • Or if you do end up taking wine, you could also add a fruit and cheese platter. Get 3 or 4 different types of cheese (maybe a manchego, gruyere, smoked cheddar with different hard crackers and fruit (grapes, strawberries), and some toasted pecans. Yummy.
