Thanksgiving menu with recipes

One of the perks of having families on separate sides of the state is that we don’t have to try to cram two dinners into one day on Thanksgiving. Last year, we hosted Tony’s family for a meal the week before Thanksgiving, and we celebrated with my family on Thanksgiving day. This year, it’s reversed. Either way, we’re having Thanksgiving two weeks in a row! It works out, because Thanksgiving is pretty much my favorite holiday.

Tony makes a pretty incredible Thanksgiving dinner, and we’ve gathered these recipes from various sources since we met and started celebrating Thanksgiving together. We’ve always cooked our own meal on another day, even on the days when we celebrated Thanksgiving day with our families. The turkey, gravy, and pie are new recipes that we’ve never tried. I’ll let you know how they turn out, but I’m sure it will be marvelous.

What are your favorite Thanksgiving recipes?

    My mouth is watering at your menu! We are having smoked turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, lefse, and pumpkin pie for sure. The rest I don’t know because it’s a potluck & we are going there. We make the lefse from potatoes, butter, and flour. It’s a Norwegian traditional flatbread similar to tortillas. It’s great for getting that last bit of cranberry sauce from your plate! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!
