Thanksgiving Dishes

Well next week is the big Turkey day. Also known as Thanksgiving! So what are you going to make? Are you cooking? going out? or just lounging on the couch watching football? I will (of course) be cooking! YAY! My most FAVORITE thing to do besides drink wine and take pictures! HA! I am not making the whole meal this year like I did last year! BOO! BUT I am in charge of the Turkey, Mashed potatoes and pies and I am think I will make the kids a special kids dessert…

So here are some ideas to help you if you will be doing any cooking next week!

We will start with dessert!

How about Apple Pie

or better yet: Scrumptious Apple Pie

MMMM I should make me a Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie

Topped with Whiskey Maple Cream Sauce
Pecan Pie

MMMM one of my most favorite parts of Thanksgiving the mashed potatoes (think I will be using this recipe this year as well)


OOOH I know I will be using this to make my turkey this year! Turkey Brine

Gotta have Classic Green Bean Casserole

Gotta have Pumpkin Pie


I don’t usually like Cranberry sauce. But I DO like this cranberry sauce


Cant forget the rolls


I made these last year too Burgundy Mushrooms

They cook for 9 hours (that’s all, only 9 hours)


OOOOH these would be a good potatoes to serve, they have those French Fried Onions, MMMM I LOVE THOSE

Restaurant-Style Smashed Potatoes


Can you tell I like potatoes? Here is another potato dish that would be good to serve. Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes


That’s all folks!

Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. I checked your brine recipe, and at the top it says you didn’t want to cook the whole thing again, because you wanted more wine!

    I love the 2009 photo. 🙂

      1. Oh man I missed her! Damn it!!! She is pretty! Kind of corny at times. I think she should sip wine on her show why she cooks. That would be awesome.

      2. It was a fun show. Too bad you missed it. 😦

        She was one of the few who didn’t drink. Giada looked smashed. I don’t like Giada, so her looking dumb was a plus.

      3. I bet they play it again!! Or I bet it’ll be on demand. I like giada. She kind of annoys me at times but she’s ok.
