How many of you have already planned out your Thanksgiving menu? Are you taking advantage of great sales prices to stock up. Butter, cream cheese, turkey, ham, and cranberries are just a few of the items I have been finding at great prices right now.
This year my oldest daughter, Lauren, has decided to host Thanksgiving dinner at her home. They also live out in the country and have a nice lake just out their back yard. I'm sure some canoeing and shooting will be going on as well as eating lots of good food and chasing little ones. I am so thankful that both of my married daughters live close enough for easy visits and we can still be together for one of our favorite holidays.
Our Thanksgiving menu rarely changes through the years. I'll be baking a turkey and ham, a sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes and a dessert that my food allergic boys can eat. Devin will be making our sweet and sour beans and another dessert. Lauren is going to try her hand at dressing this year. She called yesterday wanting the recipe. Does anyone really use a recipe? Years spent watching my mamaw and my mama make dressing and being the taste-tester taught me how to make it. I made a few changes here and there, but we love our dressing. She'll have to get experience and make it her own. She also mentioned a caramel apple cheesecake. Oh, my!! Grandmother will be bringing rolls and our traditional cranberry/apple casserole. Here is a link to some of our favorite holiday recipes. I would love for you to share some of yours with us!!
