I love Thanksgiving. Like, LOVE, love Thanksgiving. There’s just something about it that makes me giddy with warm fuzzies.
This year we’re experiencing another semi-full house with old friends, new friends, and lots of extremely delicious food, so yesterday Kenny and I went shopping for all the ingredients we need for this Turkey Day feast.
Here’s what’s on the menu so far (our guests are bringing even more good eats—ham, sweet potato pie, glazed carrots, etc.):
(We made this last year and it came out absolutely fantastic. Not only was it moist and flavorful, but it was fun and easy to make. Mmmmm….mmmmm…mmmm)
This picture doesn’t do it justice (and it was also taken before it went in the oven). Seriously guys, this stuff is delicious. It’s so good that I’m making a second batch and giving it to our friends for their family feast!
Cranberry Sauce (Grandma’s recipe)
Making this on Wednesday.
Grandma’s Green Bean Casserole (grandma’s recipe again):
Delicious, Creamy Mashed Potatoes (The Pioneer Woman):
Making this either Tuesday or Wednesday
Homemade rolls (Kenny’s recipe – came from his dad, I think)
Making these on Wednesday
Stuffing (from. a. box.)
Say what you will, but I think this stuffing is deeeelish
Pumpkin Pie (recipe’s from the back of the can…simple and yummy)
We’re using The Pioneer Woman’s Perfect Pie Crust for both this pie and the one below. We’re also making this either on Tuesday or Wednesday and freezing it till we need it on Thursday.
Apple Pie (from Alton Brown again)
Kenny and I made this pie a couple years ago for Valentine’s Day, and when it was almost ready Kenny put a heart over it…awwww!
