My mother-in-law came over for lunch yesterday and we put the finishing touches on our Thanksgiving menu. We are both making a turkey and stuffing, and of course deviled eggs. You can never have enough of those! ;0) We split up the sides and desserts to make the cooking easier. In additon to the 5 in our family, we will be having Phillip's parents and two brothers over, a friend from church, and a couple that we've been friends with for several years and their 2 children.
I am so excited about this coming week. I'm looking foward to a house full of family and friends (and pumpkin pie!). The kids are counting down the days until they can watch "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." I told them they have to wait until Friday!
Here is our Thanksgiving Menu. It is subject to change depending on how full my grocery cart gets today. ;0)
~Crackers and Brie
~Pickles and Olives
~Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
~Sweet potatoes with Marshmallows
~Corn with red peppers
As you can see, we will have enough food until Christmas! Leftovers are nice though, especially after all that cooking.
So, what is on your Thanksgiving menu?
