    Raesmom, I think I need your DH's dressing recipe!

  • jdouglas13 Nov 22, 2016

    Last night's soup was so good, we're having it again tonight. Chicken veg with tomatoes, elbow macaroni, and topped with parm. Homemade rolls on the side. They were good too!

    My favorite TG dish has to be the stuffing, preferably cooked inside the turkey. I look forward to it all year. :)

    raesmom1612 - talk about a last minute decision! Safe travels if you decide to go up. And stay warm!

    Thanks for sharing your favorites, everyone. :-)

    So last nights chili is GONE!!!! Which is a good thing because DH and I are now on the fence about going home tonight for the holiday. We both have more time off then we thought so we may make the trip up to the Tundra and visit the family.

    If we make it on the road it will be fast food (whatever we find on the way) and once we get home (with children and turkey n tow) we will assist the family in making dinner.

    My absolute favorite thanksgiving side hands down is DH's dressing. OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Its even better then his moms!!! Lol I look forward to it every year!! (and then freeze most of it and sneak it throughout the spring lol)

    I enjoy the whole special meal, and the time spent with family and friends. Favorite sides are homemade cranberry sauce, and sweet potato casserole.

    Looking forward to dh's smoked turkey and my homemade dressing, gravy, and cranberry sauce. All other dishes are homemade also, with exception of pies. Frugal?? Not so much - kind of let that slip on this special day!! ;-)

    I am having either leftover half of a steak and cheese sub or leftover spaghetti. My favorite Thanksgiving dish is sweet potato casserole and like Faye, any and all pies and desserts!

    Tonight we are having Chicken Caesar Salad and rolls although the kids were angling for homemade pizza so they may have pizza.

    And my favorite Thanksgiving dish, without a doubt, is my homemade mushroom dressing with homemade gravy. A close second is pie - all of them! :-)
