I'm just not Supermom anymore....

I think I’m just worn out with blogging. I’ve been around a long time and I think I have given all the advice that I know. You firs...

Planning your Thanksgiving meal.

This blog will be about the wonderful food that comes with Thanksgiving.  I have always loved Thankgsiving!  More than Christmas.  It's time with my family without the stress of shopping and gift giving.

It's a thrill.  Cooking, eating and socializing.  It's a wonderful tradition to have with your children.  I just absolutely love Thanksgiving!

I started planning a menu for this years feast.  EXCITING!!!  Last year I cooked everything for my family.  They just had to show up and have a fabulous time playing with the kids.  Well, and enjoy the meal.  It was delicious BTW.  This year I am delegating dishes for others to bring.  I do have four needy kids this year and don't think I want to cook for two straight days this year.

If you plan on hosting this fabulous meal it is okay to delegate others to bring a dish.  It will be a sit down dinner here so I wanted to plan the menu.  For a buffet style you can be more lenient with food that is brought.

**Note ~ my family offered to bring a dish, they wanted me to tell them which one so there wouldn't be multiple dishes of sweet potato casserole and such.  I didn't want you to think I was being a total control freak. 

Here's our menu:

Turkey and Dressing with Gravy ~ Me
Sweet Potato Casserole ~ Me
Creamed Corn ~ Aunt K
Green Bean Casserole ~ Lynn
Slaw ~ Lynn
Deviled Eggs ~ Me
Yeast Rolls ~ Me, of course!!!!!

Desserts ~ Mamaw

Cranberry Relish and/or Apple Salad ~ My MIL

My mouth is already watering.  Next, to make my grocery list.  What's your favorite part of Thanksgiving?

Being with family and the cooking process. I like to put all of these great old recipes together & to then watch everyone enjoy it. Eating hands down is the best though. Last yr. I was sick so i'm getting my stomach ready right now! Have fun!

I let the kids help, too. Your two older ones and really even, Little O, are old enough to mix, measure etc. It's a good math lesson, too. I haven't made deviled eggs, green bean casserole or stuffing (except to saute the onions and celery) in years! They love bragging about what they made, too :)
