Here's my menu....it is subject to change.....but probably not.
English Peas (this is Ryder's favorite veggie at the moment)
White Acre Peas
Potato Souffle (only my mom can do this the right way!)
Chicken and Dumplings (I added this to the menu years ago....my kids favorite)
Macaroni & Cheese (I tried the crockpot recipe a few years ago, but I like it in the oven better)
Deviled Eggs (I'll not be able to make enough of these!)
Pumpkin Pie(s) (my mom makes these from scratch...you have no idea how good they are!)
Cake-undecided what kind!
and something else.....because I'm wanting to use these Goodwill dessert dishes!
Here's my moms table a few years ago.....I had been hosting the dinner prior to this...but she wanted to do it one more time she said....
I use the days prior to Thanksgiving as my prep days. I map out each day Monday....Tuesday and Wednesday with all the things that need to be done. It seems to make things go smoothly and not be so overwhelming the day of Thanksgiving. I chop my onions....boil my eggs......make my cornbread......cut cheese chunks for the mac and cheese...set my table.....I make a list each day of several things to do. It just seems to make things go really smooth preparing ahead. I have baggies everywhere in the fridge with prepped food! I'll have to thank my mom for that. She's the organizing queen of the world. Seriously, you have no idea!
Today is Chuck E.
Also...today is our anniversary! 18 years of marital bliss. I have to say I have the most understanding, patient, kind, husband in the world. I made a mistake the first go around, but God certainly saw fit to bring this man into my life. We combined a family and then years later our beautiful Hannah joined our family. I don't think we'll ever forget how we celebrated this day today.....Chuck E. Cheese. Need I say more?!
