Is it too early to talk Thanksgiving?

I'm cooking this year.

I have a tentative menu I'll post it in a few.

What are your plans? Cooking anything new? Old stand bys?

Corn casserole is my fav. Unfortunately it is packed with dairy but I don't think I'll be able to resist.

I'm glad you posted this because DH and I were just discussing Thanksgiving dinner last night.

I want to make things that won't leave us with leftovers for a decade.

My only set in stone plan so far is a stuffed turkey breast roll up, dairy free mashed potatoes, and corn casserole. I need to add some color. Some sort of brussel sprout or green bean dish I think. Maybe cooked carrots too.

Oh and bbq meatballs as an app.

My friend made the best app meatballs. I miss her. She moved.

So far tentative:
-turkey
-green bean casserole-It's like the usual one but we make the sauce and don't use can soup
-Roastes veggies
-Potatoes-roasted & mashed
-Biscuits
-bread Stuffing
-cornbread dressing
-DH is making red meat sauce(gravy) and pasta
-French Meat Pie
-Black Beans (my ds requested these?)
-some sort of cranberry no one will eat. Anyone have a recipe that I can use the leftover cranberry stuff in muffins?

It seems like a lot but it usually is just a couple of days of leftovers.

I asked my friend over and her eyes lit up. I'm happy or have her. Munson is bringing a classmate. I'm trying to avoid the conversation with my mother.

Re: Is it too early to talk Thanksgiving?

Lol, I made most of a thanksgiving dinner last week.

We go to my grandma's for thanksgiving. It's the only time all her kids and grandkids get together. We eat the usual, with some extras (like we have turkey and ham, and several kinds of desserts). We all bring stuff so no one is stuck with tons of cooking. Days and days of leftovers has never been a problem there!

That's a great idea to do it so early before the holiday madness begins. I'm going to have to keep that idea for the future.

I contacted the godparents about not being there for Thanksgiving and I got the most heartbreaking message back. Now I'm wondering if I'm doing the right thing.

Ugh.

I did it to use up the last of the turkey before we pick up new sale ones.

I texted them (usual form of communication) and I got a really lengthy sad reply. We still plan on seeing them but just not on the day of.
