Anyone else getting ready to cook tomorrow?  If you cook for thanksgiving, how much do you do from scratch?

I don't cook for thanksgiving. My grandma does. But my family is coming over on Saturday, 17 of them, for our family Christmas picture for a Christmas card and I'm cooking dinner then. But I'm just sticking the food in my roaster and crockpot.

Happy cooking!!

I Di everything from scratch. I'm doing turkey, gravy, garlic parm mashed potatoes, sourdough bread stuffing (lol, the actual bread is store bought) mac and cheese, green bean casserole(fresh green beans and a homemade mushroom sauce) sweet potato casserole, cornbread pudding, maple glazed carrots and a pecan pie.

Me too! I could make the bread, but I don't have enough time, and its so much easier to buy loaves from the bakery!

Yesterday I puréed pumpkin and made my pie crusts. A friend came over and was shocked. She had no idea that people did that. Cracked me up!

I would say 90% is from scratch. I buy the bread. Lol I wish I had the time to make it but I have a lot of other stuff to do. :)

 I make everything from scratch, it tastes better, and is healthier. Plus it's fun.
I thought I would be able to get out of cooking this year but not quite, we're going to my Honey's dads but we're making the Turkey, and then I am also making, Biscuits, Raspberry Cheesecake, and a super yummy fancy salad :)

Yup. Onions and Celery chopped. Potatos peeled and chopped. Pecan pie made. Previously made pumpkin pie unfreezing. Both pies are made from scratch. Earlier this month I made a recipe for pumpkin pie that was suppose to make only 2 pies but it made 4 so I froze one. lol. Everything else will be fixed tomorrow.
