Thanksgiving 2012

As we are preparing for the arrival of our little butterball.  I thought I'd post our past menus in case you're looking for a little inspiration for your menu.

Thanksgiving 2011

This year I tried a new appetizer recipe, Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip.  It was ok.  Nothing I would actually make again.  But one I would make again is the Roasted Green Beans with Balsamic and Parmesean = YUMMY!

Thanksgiving 2010

We didn't cook this year but that didnt' stop me from coming up with a menu!  Some stand out options from this menu:  Paula's Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Bars (to die for!) and PW's Soul Sweet Taters.

Thanksgiving 2009

This is the first year I made Lime & Ginger Cranberry Sauce and I have been HOOKED ever since.  It has become my one item I *must* have on the table.  I may be the only one that eats it but I lurve it.  It makes an awesome tangy addition to those leftover turkey sandwiches as well.  SO yummy and SO easy!  I also touch on the idea of brining your turkey.  You should NOT skip this step.  I promise it will be worth it.

For this year, our plan is to have everyone at our house since we can't really travel anywhere.  So depending on Baby L's arrival will determine what day we celebrate.  This year's menu is as follow:

Citrus Rosemary Turkey & Gravy
Crock- pot Mashed Potatoes
Mom's Stuffing
Lime & Ginger Cranberry Sauce
Strawberry Salad - one of my fav's!
Memama's Corn
Sweet Potato Casserole
Squash Casserole
Steamed Broccoli
Carole's Macaroni Salad
Parker House Rolls

Pumpkin Pie
Pumpkin Cake
Lemon Squares
Scrumdidlyumptious Chocolate Pudding Dessert

Can you say, YUM?!?!  I can't wait!!  What's on your menu?  Any must have items on your menu?
