Thanksgiving is tomorrow?!

What's in store for your Thanksgiving? Tomorrow, Carlos and I travel to my parents house, super early in the morning to have a Thanksgiving lunch. My mom and I will be preparing the following:

Turkey
Green Bean Casserole
Gravy
Mashed Potatoes
Peas
Pumpkin Pie Cookies (pre-made, recipe care of Scathingly Brilliant)

Carlos is presenting them with the above gift basket from Wilson Farm which I chose. It's all fruit (apples, pears, grapes, oranges) as well as one jar of jam. I'm presenting my parents with a 200-photo album filled with pictures of Carlos and I taken during our adventures. My parents are giving him Heineken beer.

While at my parents, I'll be making a Leek, Artichoke & Potato Gratin for Thanksgiving dinner.


Then Carlos and I are heading to his extended family's home for Thanksgiving dinner. I'll be bringing the gratin and extra Pumpkin Pie Cookies. I feel this is a good balance. I'm not overworking myself, I'm allowing my mom to help me more and we are all still in the spirit of giving.

What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm making a number of desserts which I'll hopefully get a chance to post about soon.

Wow! Those potatoes look amazing! I'm going to have to try them some Sunday afternoon when I have help with the kiddos. I love leeks! :o)

I hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving! It sounds like it should be filled with wonderful food and great company.

Ours will be much of the same, though I'm actually doing practically no cooking this year. We're headed to my husband's Aunt & Uncle's home for Thanksgiving dinner and they always prepare everything. Even without preparing the food I'm still looking forward to relaxing with the family.

Cornish game hens at home w/Eberle--not sure what all the trimmings will be. Hope you & Carlos have a lovely day--the food sounds great.
