Ah, well...there's nothing for it. Thanksgiving will be here next week and I've got to get ready! My sister and her family are coming to us this year for a beachy-keen Thanksgiving! I've never hosted a major holiday, so I'm super psyched. But there's still so much to do! We just got our dining room table, but we only have two chairs. None of our artwork is up, and I'm out of town until Thursday of this week. I have from Thursday to Sunday to get everything done, so wish me luck!

Broccoli Casserole, Sweet Potato Casserole,
But the one thing I know we have nailed is the Thanksgiving menu. My sister and I agree, our traditional menu is the way to go. It's the same one we'll have for Christmas too, because that's just how we roll. Everyone has the dish or dishes that they MUST have for a fulfilling (or maybe just filling) Thanksgiving. It reminds me of that Friends episode where everyone makes Monica make several different kinds of mashed potatoes, because Thanksgiving just wouldn't be the same if they didn't have them the way they had them growing up. Something I can totally relate to.
So, here's our menu, because I know you're all just dying to know what we're eating on Turkey Day...
Broccoli Casserole (this is my personal favorite)
Sweet Potato Casserole (everybody loves this one)
Mashed Potatoes (I prefer the boxed ones, and yes, I know that makes me weird, but the threat of lumps in real MPs scares me off)
Stuffing (Stove Top, please!)
Corn (like real Pilgrims!)
Brown n Serve Rolls (screw being gluten-free...I'll happily be bloated and uncomfortable for BnS rolls!)

What about you?? What are you eating on Thanksgiving Day? What is the one dish you MUST have on Turkey Day (or if you're not from the US, any major holiday)?
Whatever you eat, wherever you are...I wish all our readers a very Happy Thanksgiving!
