Thanksgiving Dinner

The kids (Justin & Amanda) are coming for Thanksgiving this year. I've thought about dinner ... but not too much. I'm not into making myself crazy these days. However, it doesn't hurt to write things down ~ so isn't this blog the perfect place to do that?  Here's what's on my mind ... so far .... for dinner, which is ten whole days away.  All ideas will be considered ~ so if you have one ~ please comment.

Roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, wheat dinner rolls, biscuits for Amanda, whole cranberry sauce, ham roll ups, black olives & green olives. Dessert: berry pie, pumpkin pie, pecan pie.

My sweet daughter-in-law is very allergic to milk so I'm keeping that in mind as I plan my menu. She is going to help me prepare dinner and I'm really glad for the help.  I've already started using soy milk in my morning breakfast oatmeal.  It's not bad!

Beyond Thanksgiving dinner, I'm thinking I should have my freezer stocked up with Justin's favorite holiday cookies & breads. Here's what I'll be baking next weekend:  Russian tea cakes, pumpkin rolls, zucchini bread, fudge, oatmeal cookies and perhaps some caramel corn.  Amanda assures me she likes all food so I'm hoping she'll dig right in when she gets here.

I can hardly wait!  Let the countdown begin.


  1. Oh gosh, yeah, stuffing! What was I thinking??? Thanks!!!

  2. WHEW......with the addition of those two I can let you proceed!! :-)

  3. Well I want one piece of each pie.
