It is time to start planning out my menu for the big meal. Thanksgiving is definitely a favorite in this house. Everyone looks forward to the food. Our family has dwindled so it is typically my 5 plus my mom and dad, my two nephews, 1 girlfriend, 1 brother
and his girl with their 3 kids.(my brothers girl has her brother staying with them right now, I really don't want to invite him but not sure how that would go over. My family is definitely dysfunctional... even though I pretend its not!
My menu includes: Turkey, Ham, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Candied Sweet Potatoes, Noodles, Peas.
I also make Deviled Eggs(my kids would kill me if these were not present. I used to make these with my sister when she would come to my house with her family, but with us not talking for the last 2 years it is one of those things I dislike doing now.),
German Potato Salad (my MILs recipe- our holiday meal would not be complete without it and now that she is gone it means more now than ever), Cold Potato Salad with and without egg(my dad hates eggs with a passion), Pickled Eggs(because my mother insists on
them even though there are only 2 maybe 3 people that eat them), Coleslaw, Rolls.
For dessert I always have pumpkin pies, apple pies and plenty of cookies.
No one can say they leave my house hungry!
Once again I am looking for that new recipe/dish that will wow the crowd. Do you have any suggestions??? In the past brussels sprouts have made an appearance as well as bacon wrapped green beans and candied carrots. Who knows maybe they will again!
This year I am planning a casserole for my leftovers.The Kraft Thanksgiving-Leftovers-Casserole
I will follow up with a post once I have made it and let you know how it came out.
