This year I am hosting Thanksgiving for my parents, my brother and his wife, as well as the five of us here at home. I have no idea what my menu is going to be, so that is why you find me here, blogging two weeks before the big day! YIKES! I was honestly thinking I had three weeks left to prepare!
AppetizerCheese & Meat tray w/ Assortment of crackers
Veggie tray w/ Ranch Dip
Relish tray (Pickles, olives)
Main CourseRoasted Chicken (My Daddy, and Husband would prefer chicken over turkey)
Cornbread Dressing (Momma's bringing) & Cranberry sauce
Green beans cooked w/ bacon and new potatoes
Steamed Asparagus w/ toasted almonds and butter
Mashed Potatoes w/ Gravy
Dessert OptionsPecan Pie
A simple menu, in spite of some rather large spreads I have seen in my days, but there are only nine of us, and a few of us are picky eaters. I would love to have a broccoli rice casserole up there, but my brother doesn't eat it and well, to be honest sometimes we offer TOO many options at the table. The various options for dessert are because there are some that are coming who do not like pumpkin (WHAT?), my daughter doesn't like ANY kind of pie, and there are some of us who will taste them all ! LOL
So, my dear friends, what are YOU serving this Thanksgiving? I would LOVE to hear what's going to be on your Thanksgiving table this year. Perhaps you can inspire me to make something different or new that I haven't even thought of.
