Do you eat the same foods each year for Thanksgiving? or do you make and eat new things?

Growing up, we ate the same thing, every.single.year. lol  It was always turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy, rolls, green bean casserole, yams w/ marshmallows lol, and pumpkin pie for dessert. My mom NEVER strayed from that menu, not even once! hahaha

I love exploring new tastes and traditions now that I'm an adult.

What about you all?

We follow the same menu but we also have something new occasionally. I am thinking of making a new dessert this year.

Yum!  I'd like to as well I think....I'd like to make something other than a pie. Well, with the pie, I mean. I won't give up my pumpkin pie ;)

I've never made a Thanksgiving dinner.  Thanksgiving is always done by either my mom or MIL.  This year is with my mom. :) I look forward to her deviled eggs.

Oh my goodness, delicious! I love deviled eggs!

I also have never made a full Thanksgiving dinner. I think hosting would be fun, but it looks like SO much work! haha
