What's Cooking?

As Thanksgiving approaches, Sean and I have been searching for recipes and narrowing down our list of what we want to make for Thanksgiving.




So far this is our list:

Turkey
Potato Casserole
Green Bean Casserole
Gravy
Mashed Potatoes
Stuffing (courtsey of Pioneer Woman)
Cranberry Sauces(another Pioneer Woman recipe)
Rolls (yet another PW recipe)
Pumpkin Pie
Pecan Pie
Spinach Dip
Mozzarella Dip

Whew! That's a lot of food. I'll be making approximately 3/4 of the items on there. Luckily the pies, dips and casseroles can be made ahead of time.

So...what's on your list for Thanksgiving this year?

headed to the inlaws so I dont get to cook. I'm a little sad actually. I was going to make the whole traditional meal, witha nice side of squash casserole just like my grandma made and for dessert... cheesecake!

My Mom is coming to visit us for the week. She is arriving shortly. E and I are making:
Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Acorn Squash, Noodle Pudding, Corn, Cranberry Sauce, Cherry Streudel and Pumpkin Pie with fresh whipped cream. I think that will be enough LOL

Happy Thanksgiving.

It's just not thanksgiving without the green bean casserole!

By the way, a friend of ours had no clue Oklahoma got so cold! I guess some people don't realize that a lot of the south gets bitterly cold.

We are pushing our Thanksgiving back a day due to James Bonds work schedule. I can't wait to make the pies, my Grandmothers sweet potato puff recipe, and everything else. I am probably making enough for a family of 5 and there are only 2 and a half of us. haha.

green bean casserole (grandma!)
mashed potatoes (pioneer woman)
homemade rolls (my fiance's recipe)

Nice pics! That goes for the whole series on Slovenia.

Slovenia is a small and extremely diverse country well worth a visit.

You really can't go wrong with a SPA vacation. Maybe you can combine that with a visit of one of Slovenia's wine regions. I would also highly recommend you try some outdoor activity (e.g. hiking, rafting, canyoning).

Love PW as well!
We're doing potluck style with each family contributing to a dinner hosted at our house. We are making the turkey -- a fresh one from a local butcher, roasted sweet potatoes, Aunt Cheryl's yams, pecan pie, crostini with Tuscan pate, bread from the pizzeria down the street & shrimp mold.
As always, it'll be too much food. As always we'll rub our bellies and comment as such. As always we'll agree that it's worth every bite.

Happy Thanksgiving.
Dana

Wow, that's a lot of food. have fun cooking and baking. We canceled Thanksgiving this year because I am at my in-laws and hubby can't be there because of training... it's kinda complicated. We'll probably just go out to eat Thanksgiving weekend.

Give me Ham, Mashed Potatoes, hot rolls and pecan or pumpkin pie with loads of whipped cream and I'm a happy camper!

Abbie said...

I was just catching up on your last few posts (bad blogger, I know) and wow! Slovenia looked absolutely beautiful!

Looks like you're going all out for Thanksgiving! If I had to do Thanksgiving dinner all on my own, Ryan and I would be screwed! Good for you!

I am planning on attempting the PW rolls -- I think they match up to my culinary skill level!

Other than that, ours is gonna be very low key, I think. I am just not that ambitious, and there will only be 3 of us. My sister and I are planning on drinking A LOT of wine, so we won't really be tasting everything anyway. :-p

I am going to my boyfriend's family in Iowa, and I plan to make sour cream coffee cake muffins to share. I made them last week and brought them to work, and they were amazing!
