  • I'm with salexander, but I love green bean casserole, watergate salad, mashed potatoes, pecan pie, it's not the same on Thanksgiving without them! And I love to make monkey bread on Christmas! Christmas Eve I love having champagne, cheese and crackers, hot cocoa, bit sized brownies etc.

  • I agree with salexander and Mamasarah. I like it all! lol! It's so hard to choose when you have turkey, dressing with sage and sausage, sweet potato casserole, lots of good veggies depending on whose home is the host site, and cranberry sauce! Oh I can't wait! And my cheesecakes! lol!

  • "THREE SISTERS" STEW

    In Native American mythology, squash, corn, and beans are known as of the "three sisters." These are the very crops, along with garden vegetables, that the harvest festival of Thanksgiving is meant to celebrate!

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 medium onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 medium green or red bell pepper, cut into short, narrow strips
    14- to 16-ounce can diced tomatoes, with liquid
    2 cups cooked or canned pinto beans
    2 cups corn kernels (from 2 large or 3 medium ears, or frozen)
    1 cup homemade or canned stock, or water
    1 or 2 small fresh hot chiles or jalapenos, seeded and minced
