Thanksgiving Menu Plan

We have Thanksgiving at my parents' house every year and in the past few years (since teaching myself how to cook) I have been splitting the load with my Mom. One of these days I would love to host the whole thing but we are always in the midst of home renovations. Maybe some day our house will be finished!

I am a firm believer that Thanksgiving (and Christmas) dinner be a diet freebie zone. Eat a light breakfast, try not to overeat on turkey and pie, and then start back up on your diet the next day. It helps to not take home too many leftovers, too!

On our menu:

Turkey and Gravy
PW's Thanksgiving Stuffing (made with her cornbread which I make ahead of time)
PW's Delicious, Creamy Mashed Potatoes
My mom's Sweet Potato and Apple dish
Green Beans
Cranberry Sauce (last year I made PW's which I highly recommend)
PW's Dinner Rolls (are we noticing a trend yet?)
My mom's Pumpkin Pie
My mom's Sour Cream Apple Pie
Pumpkin Cheesecake (haven't decided which recipe to use yet)

I hope to post recipes for Pumpkin Pie, Sweet Potato Apple dish, and Sour Cream Apple Pie over this holiday season.

What are your favorite Thanksgiving dishes?

LOVE PW's creamy mashed potatoes, but our new Thanksgiving staple are her whiskey glazed carrots. I could eat them every day, sooo yummy.

Looks yum! We had a change of plans this year and instead of hosting at my house we are traveling to my brother's. The funny thing is that I'm not relieved, I really enjoy having it-well, maybe not the multiple loads of dishes!

Have a great holiday!
