Thanksgiving Menu

I am hosting my first Thanksgiving this year, but thankfully I'm not having to make ALL the dishes.  However, I thought I would share our menu with you!

Fruit Tray - Being made by my sister in law

Stuffed Eggs - I'm attempting these for the first time by my Grandma's "recipe".  Ever notice how our grandparents don't really have recipes, but they just make everything by sight and taste!

Captain Rodney's Dip - Being made by my sister in law

Fried Turkey - Jarod fries one of the best turkey's I've ever eaten!

Chicken Dressing - Being made by my mother in law

Marinated Vegetables - Being made by my mother in law

Mashed Potatoes - Jarod's cousin was supposed to make these, but they aren't coming due to the stomach flu...guess I will be going with some instant ones this year

Corn Souffle - Being made by Jarod's Aunt

Cornbread Dressing - I'm using my Grandma's recipe

Egg Gravy - Attempting my Grandma's "recipe"


Hashbrown Casserole - Click on the link for the recipe

Green Bean Casserole - Jarod's Aunt is making

Sweet Potato Casserole - Jarod's Aunt is making

Rolls - I'm going to easy route and buying Sister Schubert's

Red Velvet Cake - click on the link for the recipe

Chocolate Eclair - Using my Mom's recipe

Chocolate Chess Pie - Being made by my mother in law

Pistachio Pudding - Being made by Jarod's Aunt

Kentucky Derby Pie - Being made by my sister in law

We are definitely going to have a feast!  At this point we have 14 adults and 3 kids and 1 baby coming to eat with us.  I think with that feast above we'll be able to feed the entire town though!

If you want something better than instant mashed potatoes and don't feel like making homemade ones, get the Ore Ida Steam and Mash (I think is what they're called) out of the frozen food section. When you add all the yummy stuff you put in homemade mashed potatoes, they're much closer to homemade tasting than instant ones.
