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?
