To finish: Pumpkin Bread Pudding w/ Tres Leche Ice Cream
To sip: Riesling, Apple Cider w/ cranberry ice cubes

It depends on if we spend it just the three of us or not. If its just s three I am toying with the idea of making Cornish game hens for my husband and I and earths best nuggets for my son. Gotta price em out though and see if its possible. If not maybe a small turkey. Last night we went to a friends but I made a delicious baked sea bass, Indian pudding (Susan branch recipe), stuffing and sweet potatoes.
Stuffing is my favorite thing on earth so I will definitely be making stuffing! Mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, corn, biscuits, gravy, and some sort of pie are all required! I may make gruyere Mac and cheese again too. I made it 2011 and it was awesome!
I would love to make a ham one year but my husband is weird about pork. He doesn't want us to buy it but he will eat it at friends. Weirdo.
This is making me so hungry! Yum I love thanksgiving food!

Pumpkin pie! Family takes care of the rest!
@MrsMccarthy: I may or may not have started this thread because I was hungry
@Mrs. Lemon-Lime: Yum!!! So fancy and delicious!

I'm bringing sweet potato casserole and maybe green bean casserole.

@MrsMccarthy: what's your fav stuffing recipe??
pear / 1955 posts
I'm making an apple cobbler to bring for dessert - my favorite part of Thanksgiving is that someone else is in charge of making everything!

My MIL hosts Thanksgiving but I bring the mashed potatoes. 10 pounds of them!
blogger / pomegranate / 3201 posts
@Mrs. Bee: Liam doesn't like mashed potatoes, either! Crazy!
wonderful pear / 26210 posts
I am doing the pies this year, as I am not hosting.
If I were, I would be doing the same as Mrs. LemonLime and doing cornish game hens with a side of turkey legs. I'd do butternut squash soup as a starter, though.
@BandDmommy: that's what I'm going for
@dagret: ten pounds of taters! Dang that's a lot!

Catering. I'm pregnant, lazy, and it's not a holiday here. But I'm still going to be eating turkey.
@mrs. tictactoe: who doesn't like mashed potatoes???? seriously.
My parents host thanksgiving and usually take care of everything - the one year I made pumpkin pies they weren't cooked all the way through
We help more with my ILs thanksgiving the Saturday after. I usually make an appetizer (baked brie or bacon wrapped dates) and a side or two (mashed potatoes and/or roasted carrots).

I believe I am in charge of desserts but need to double check.
coconut / 8279 posts
@Mrs. Bee: @mrs. tictactoe: J doesn't like mashed potatoes either!
We'll be doing our Tofurkey and listening to the rest of my family make fun of us
I also make a green bean casserole because my grandmother used to make one but my mom hates onions, my grandmother passed away a long time ago and it wasn't made for years until I brought it back. J loves green beans, so he's all over it.
@BandDmommy: They're from skinnytaste - so yummy!

Hopefully we can find some place in Paris that is serving a Thanksgiving type dinner?! Otherwise I don't know! We haven't been home for Thanksgiving in about 5 years, LOL.
@Mrs. J: I have a few I like including one with oysters in it but this year ill be making Susan branch's http://www.susanbranch.com/my-grandmas-stuffing/

Bringing green bean casserole.
@LindsayInNY: you poor thing... I'm so jealous!!!
@BandDmommy: I think the unfortunate part is however much in Paris isn't pregnancy-friendly!!
wonderful grape / 20453 posts
@LindsayInNY: It is to the french women!!! They are much more lax than us
I'm bringing Paula Deen's corn pudding this year. My mom will refuse to let us help, I'm sure of it

Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, corn, green beans, sauerkraut (for my mom), and rolls. I haven't figured out the apps yet and my mom is doing the desserts.
@blackbird: I know... And I'm sure they'll roll their eyes at me if I question things too. Oh well, I guess?
@looch: I made butternut squash bisque a couple years ago and my mom loved it, but my husband was not a fan. In fact he probably won't like the roasted squash either. I'll just stick with the pear salad, which calls for manchego cheese.
hostess / wonderful apple seed / 16729 posts
Turkey, stuffing, green bean (or mixed veggie) casserole, corn, mashed potatoes, candied sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce
DH and I both have 'must have' sides, so I make them both. I don't mind. I've done it for a few years now.

We'll be doing a Thanksgiving themed meal for Bible study, since the family Thanksgiving is taken charge of by other relatives. I usually do a really easy menu of smoked turkey breasts from Costco (they are already cooked and REALLY good!), gravy, sweet potato casserole with marshmallows and a cinnamon-brown sugar-pecan topping, bagged salad with dried cranberries and nuts, stuffing, and sweet rolls. Costco pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream of course. The best part is everything can be done in like 2-3 hours!

We're headed to my family's in NYC. It'll also be my niece's birthday party. DH will make the turkey and I'm going to make some desserts to bring with. SIL will probably cater the rest which will be Chinese food. Can't wait!

Turkey (probably Alton Brown's recipe again), stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, scratch green bean casserole, roasted veggies (sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, parsnips, turnips), and rolls. Pumpkin and apple pies for dessert. And fresh cranberry sauce!
squash / 13208 posts
@LindsayInNY: Don't laugh but I spent Thanksgiving in Paris years ago - we were out sight seeing and by the time we got home couldn't find a place to eat - we had McDonalds
I don't recommend it!
We just make traditional stuff
@Mamaof2: We've done it in Puerto Rico, Tokyo and Arizona! Managed to get some sort of a Thanksgiving meal every place but Tokyo
cantaloupe / 6059 posts
I am bringing a yet-to-be-determined appetizer, green bean casserole, and two pies. YUM.
coffee bean / 33 posts
@Mrs. Lemon-Lime: Tres leche ice cream sounds fabulous!! Is it homemade or is there somewhere I can find this? I'm a huge fan of the cake but ice cream... Yum!
