    Nothing, because THANK THE GOOD LORD I’m not cooking this year!!

    Mom makes turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans or carrots, applesauce, rolls, and my sister or her daughter always bake a wonderful lattice top apple pie.

    I’ll show up and eat. And help set the table. It rocks not to host!

    We are enjoying Thanksgiving with friends and family.
    There will be a group of about 15. Everyone is contributing to the dinner. I will be taking a lemon mascarpone cheesecake and a sweet potato souffle.

    It should be a wonderful dinner. It is enjoyable to share the responsibilities of cooking.

    I’m glad you have help with the cooking because you are going all out! Can’t wait to look at the recipes and see more to come. We are dining with friends this year since we don’t have family near so we are in the process of “breaking” up the menu. Hopefully I’ll get put in charge of something fun like rolls or pies.

    Your menu sounds fabulous! This year, my husband has to work on a special project at work on T-Day. So, my girls and I decided to spend the day decorating for Christmas and having fun playing games, making cookies and enjoying a little unconventional holiday time.

    Well, I’m not hosting Thanksgiving, but I do have to do most of my own cooking (b/c of the food intolerances). So here’s my menu w/ plenty for leftovers (everything will be Gluten/Dairy-free):
    Turkey w/ seasonings (cooked in the crockpot)
    Lots of turkey gravy
    Sweet potato cornbread stuffing (even the name is a mouthful!)
    Green beans w/ mushroom sauce
    Ground flax seed rolls
    And for dessert, I want to do something with pumpkin and/or apple, and maybe a chocolate cream pie. Still working out the dessert details though.

    We are going to our local church to have Thanksgiving with other military families in the area.

    I would LOVE to come have dinner at your home.

    I’m not hosting dinner this year, but I’ll be taking our traditional “pearls and rubies” (pearl onions and cranberries in a sugar/stock sauce), and I’m always elected to be in charge of the gravy.

    I wish so badly that all my kids were here this year for Thanksgiving. This will be the first year we do not have a huge crowd of family and friends. We are not sure what we are going to do. We have had several invites, but it is not the same when you are so used to doing it yourself… you know?

    I love Thanksgiving almost more than any other holiday because I love to cook all our favorites.

    We’re hosting my family and we’re having our traditional:
    turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, green beans with bacon, brussel sprouts, stuffing, raspberry pretzel salad, spinach salad with pears (was this from you last year or Martha?), rolls, Martinelli’s sparkling ciders, cranberry sauce, lime jello, and my sister-in-law is bringing 3 pies. YUM!
