So, to help take the sting out of their little broken hearts, we've let the kids plan the menu.

We're having:

Pepperoni & Sausage Pizza
Corn
Broccoli
salad
Donuts
French Fries
Chocolate Fondue with Strawberries and Pound Cake
Fruit & Veggie platter
Pumpkin Pie
Macademia Nut Cream Pie

It will certainly be an interesting meal!
Bless their little hearts, if they are happy, you will be happy and they picked broccoli?

I thought this forum asked if we used the term "stuffing" or "dressing". I usually call it stuffing, which is ironic because I have NEVER had it stuffed inside the bird. Ever. It's always been made as a side dish.

How very sad and immature of Grandpa-life is too short.

Blessings to you and DH and the children.

They know I love veggies and that broccoli is one of my favorites

Their grandparents are the ones who are missing out!

NALgirl - Tomato pudding is a real southern dish that my father in law had when he was little (over 80 years ago). It is FANTASTIC!!!! It is canned tomatoes, white bread cubes, sugar and butter cooked on the stovetop. It is very easy and is the consistency of a 'pudding'.

I love it and it is so easy, I can cook it on the stove in about 10 minutes - which is a lifesaver (too many oven dishes already).

Every year I tell the family I won't go through this ever again (I'm the sole cook on Thanksgiving)...and yet, here we go again! I overdo it every year, but I can't help myself.


Homemade cheeseball (the one thing hubby makes)
Dill Deviled Eggs
Turkey (roasted while covered in cheesecloth, basted in wine and butter)
Stuffing
Mashed Potatoes (w/roasted garlic, sour cream and fresh garlic chives)
Fresh Sweet Potato Casserole (in pecan/brown sugar/cinnamon/vanilla sauce--hubby insists it be topped with marshmallows)
Honey Roasted Parsnips/Turnips/Carrots
Green Bean Casserole (nothing canned)
Spinach Soufflé
Pumpkin Pie
Martinelli's Sparkling Cider

...and then, a coma.

Question What will be on YOUR Thanksgiving table this year...

I mean, other than the obvious!!

I am a traditionalist...stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, dinner rolls, pumpkin and apple pies. We have a 9# "Lil Butterball" thawing as I speak...

Can't stand yams or cranberry sauce, although I do make the cbs fresh for dh.
