Well, I did it early this year and it was a breeze. Hit the grocery store on Monday, and picked up everything I need for a feast on Thanksgiving! I almost decided not to go since it was snowing like mad and it was mighty cold. But the store was practically empty and there were check-out lines to choose from. Yay! Maybe most folks didn't venture out in the storm. I must remember that for the future. So, carefully tucked away and waiting for my loving touch are the ingredients to my family's favorite foods. On the menu this year and every year, (you don't mess with tradition) are:

a Big Butterball Turkey
Homemade Turkey Gravy
Macaroni and Cheese
Whipped yams
Cranberry Orange Jello Mold
Pickles & Green and Black Olives
Crescent Rolls
Pumpkin Pie and Whipped Cream
Sparkling Cider

Nothing fancy, nothing gourmet. Yep, those are the rolls right out of the tube. And I have to admit, the whipped cream comes out of a can. I like a basic Turkey dinner, simple and tasty. And I think my family agrees; there isn't much to clean up when we are done. Always, Kit

  2. Hi Ki... yum!... I want some of all of it right now!... I love that, like me, you don't mess with traditions... keeping them alive is what keeps our memories alive and also helps create new ones... I need to get out today and get my shopping done for Thanksgiving as well... BIG snowstorm predicted to move in tonight!... I will be dreaming about your whipped yams... mmmmm!... xoxo Julie Marie

  3. I don't eat meat anymore, but I do usually try to order a turkey for my family and then I fix some other things to go with it. Pumpkin with whipped cream is definitely a must. :) Hope your week is great. Tammy

  4. I love Turkey dinner at your house! Those are all still my favorite foods, and I can't wait! Mmm!

  5. Your menu sounds delicious. I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.
