With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, I decided I better start planning our menu. Since Thanksgiving is our first big meal after spending the summer harvesting crops, canning and tending to our animals, I think it’s always fun to see how many homegrown things we can use for our meal. Today I rounded up what we have, that way I can make a list and get the things we still need…
We have turkey, green beans, sweet potatoes, pickled okra, tomatoes and apple pie, which is a good start to having what we need for our meal.
Our Thanksgiving menu:
Mashed potatoes and gravy
This year I’m cooking the turkey, green beans, sweet potatoes and stuffing. Mom is making the mashed potatoes and gravy, apple pie, lettuce salad, cranberry ice and jello salad. My sisters are bringing rolls, side dishes and dessert. Yum… can’t wait for Thanksgiving!
One of our family favorite dishes, that’s tradition to make every year is Cranberry Ice. It goes way back several generations on my mom’s side and Thanksgiving without it is just not Thanksgiving at all at our house. Be sure to check back soon for the recipe.
What’s on your menu this Thanksgiving? What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food?
