I’m curious… What’s on everyone’s Thanksgiving dinner menu? I love all the different ways people celebrate, and how different the menus can be, from table to table. 🥰🍁🦃❤️

Our Thanksgiving Dinner Menu:

- Cornish Hens 

- Green Bean Casserole 

- Mashed Potatoes & Gravy 

- Sage Stuffing 

- Soft Buttery Rolls & Cinnamon Butter 

- Cranberry Sauce 

- Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake 

- Pumpkin Pie 

What does your Thanksgiving dinner look like? 🍽️ 🦃🥘🍁🍂

How is a Texas sheet cake different from regular sheet cake?

Thanksgiving Meal:

- Turkey

- Mashed Potatoes

- Sweet Potatoes

- Stuffing

- Homemade Gravy

- Canned Cranberries

- Green Salad

- Zucchini/Yellow Squash or another vegetable

- Pie (this year I am going to try to make a pumpkin pie with a butternut squash I grew!)

I was born in Texas, and raised in Oklahoma, often going back and forth throughout the years. It’s just what we call it here. Some people will argue that sheet cakes originated in Texas. Some say it’s called that because the sheet pan is huge… “Texas sized”! Others say it’s having pecans in the melted icing. ::shrugs:: No clue. That’s just what everyone calls it here. ☺️

I can’t cook well so my hubs and I take turns going to our parents houses. This year it’s my in laws. I think the menu is…

-turkey

-biscuits

-broccoli casserole

-corn

-potatoes

-apple, pumpkin, and pecan pies

-green bean casserole

-homemade stuffing (my favorite)


…this is very much a “meat and potatoes” type of family 😂 but the food is delicious!! 🤤

It's just myself and my mom this year. Since it's just us we are doing an easy spaghetti with tomato and meat sauce and garlic toast for a lunch. I'm driving to her place and I want to be home before it gets dark. I don't like driving in the dark, lol.

I don’t like driving in the dark alone, either! 💜

Spisghetti and garlic toast sounds yummy! 🍝🖤😋

We picked up our pumpkin pie and chocolate sheet cake from the bakery today. I’m about to start prepping for tomorrow. I have to make the cinnamon butter and cranberry sauce tonight, along with a dozen deviled eggs. 🥚 😈 Hehe!

That ambrosia fruit salad brings back memories! My mom use to make that when i was a kid. I've made it a few times, but it's been awhile. I use to cook everything homemade also.  So, i understand your stress! 

This year we're taking the easier route. I'll be fixing roasted chicken and the regular fixin's. Stuffing, mashed potatoes, baked sweet potatoes, and rolls. Not sure what Will be for dessert yet. 

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! ❤🦃
