    Default What is your menu for Thanksgiving Dinner

    I'm cooking:

    Turkey
    Crockpot Stuffing
    Grilled acorn squash, baby tomatoes and asparagus
    Salad
    Mash potatoes with cream cheese and Gravy
    Cranberry relish
    Pumpkin/pecan pie
    Fresh Fruit

    Has anyone cooked stuffing in the crockpot? How did it turn out? Would you share your successful recipe? Thank you

    We are going to my sil's this year for Thanksgiving, so I'm not sure what she has planned. I know we'll be having Turkey though since we're bringing it

    Reading what everyone is having is making me hungry. I'm having my family over next weekend for an early Thanksgiving dinner.

    Has anyone tried cooking stuffing in the crockpot? How did it turn out. I'm wondering if the crockpot would dry the stuffing out to much.

    Dh manages a resturant and Turkey day is a mandatory work day for all so he will be there. On the bright side I get all the Thanksgiving items I want, with none of the cooking and cleaning up that comes afterwards.....lol

    I will however be doing an early Thanksgiving with my mom next weekend when I go over for a visit so I may make a pumpkin pie unless we decide to go out to eat.

    We are having a huge party for Thanksgiving and have invited all of our friends and family that can come. We are making dinner late and about half of our guests will be coming from other family dinners. They can choose to eat or not, but it's great fun and we do it every year!

    DH lights up luminaries up the sidewalk from the driveway.

    As an appitizer and something fun we are making Buffalo chicken wings in our turkey fryer outdoors. (We are from Buffalo )

    Also as appitizers:

    veggie platter with three homemade dips
    a cheese and cracker platter
    BBQ candied kielbasa in the crockpot

    30 pound turkey (It's the biggest one that fits in my oven and yes I've had experience )
    Homemade bread stuffing
    mashed potatoes
    homemade gravy
    homemade cranberry sauce
    toss salad
    Homemade rolls

    I will make some cookies and one pumpkin pie, all other desserts will be brought by friends.

    A huge carafe of perked coffee and black tea

    I haven't tried this myself but it tastes delicious. I went w/my friend Cathy to a THANKSGIVING 101 cooking demo w/chef Barbara Sheridan of Look Who's Cooking @ a library close by my house (not my towns) & it was advertised in my Pennysaver paper & was FREE! She has a website & cooking classes. Everyone got to eat great food that night I got some leftovers to give DH the next day for dinner & Cathy got her share too!

    She gave out recipes too One of her tips to cooking the dressing in the crockpot was whenever you'd baste the turkey, you should also baste the dressing!

    I haven't even thought about it yet. Our family is in another state so it's usually just us and this year DH volunteered to work. I do usually cook a turkey though -- we really like the leftovers. His day off is Wednesday so&nbsp;we may&nbsp;do the big meal then.

    When we first got married we tried to do volunteer work on the holidays but were turned away -- everyone said they already had it covered. After several years of that we gave up. Then we tried to invite people we thought might be alone -- we only had one person accept. So now we just cook our turkey and watch TV.
