What's on your Thanksgiving menu this year?

Ha, ha, ha, ha...totally non traditional. It will only be my elderly friend and myself. Daughter may stop by, but not for dinner. She has that planned with boyfriend and his family. I will put out a plate of snacks.


Chicken thighs in marinade, sweet potato with butter/brown sugar, saute'd fresh kale, crescent rolls {canned}, fresh cranberry sauce. I think I will try out the new Christmas cookie recipe that I wish to make in December. I might also make some of my mini nut/berry muffins for breakfast that day. Those also freeze well, to use into the next month for things. I want to play with some flavored butter recipes, too..for the rolls, so I will probably pick one of those to start with. And see if it is what I wish to use for Christmas. I consider Thanksgiving my "test" go-around  Grin

Lima bean casserole
apple walnut stuffing
cranberry relish

Lots of food that will put us to sleep

For desserts we are buying individual tarts instead of having a big pie.

Traditional menu for us:

Sage stuffing
Mashed potatoes
Yams with marshmallows (for my sister in law)
Home made cranberry sauce
The 'green bean' casserole
Home made rolls
Jello layered salad

My family will be bringing the pies... apple cheesecake & pumpkin

It's all good! Now I'm hungry.
