So...what are you guys cooking up for Thanksgiving? How do you celebrate? I'm guessing most of us do about the same thing....get together with family and/or friends and eat some sort of food. Most traditional, some less so.
I've experienced a big range....from cooking it all (turkey to pie and everything in between) by myself, to doing NOTHING but eat someone else's glory, to eating Chinese food. I prefer traditional Thanksgiving fare, though.
This year, we're going to Gramma's (my mother-in-law). Her boyfriend (Grump) will be there. Adam's brother Eric and his girlfriend Lyn will be flying in, too. I need to bring a few sides.
Do you have a chain called Black Eyed Pea where you live? My favorite thing there is the vegetarian platter. I particularly like their squash casserole. My cousin Stephanie makes an awesome version. I was thinking I'd make a basic squash casserole using acorn squash instead of yellow squash.
I don't think I could live without a pecan pie. Here's a tasty recipe from the Food Network. I approve of the bourbon in the ingredients list.
And I need to bring some other side dish. We'll have turkey, stuffing, gravy, spinach and broccoli casserole, and sweet potato pies.
What else would y'all recommend making? Do you have any good recipes?
