Ann's Thanksgiving Line Up...

I'm going whole hog this year, trying some new things. First I'm going to get a fresh turkey and try my hand at brining. I'm going with Pioneer woman for the brining, baking and gravy for the turkey:

I'm making the rolls I love:

Green Bean Casserole

Sweet Potato Casserole

A green salad,

stuffing (I like the Stove Top with cranberries),

Grape Drink: Mix grape juice with Sprite or ginger ale or Fresca...note: mix carefully, when adding the ginger ale it will make the grape juice foam quickly, so it's a slow process.

And pumpkin pie with cool whip. Because Ben prefers Sam's Club's pie I don't bake them anymore...and I'm still holding a grudge about the whole thing and probably will until I die.

I'm also going to make cinnamon rolls on Wednesday for breakfast on Thursday, of course using Jaidi's Mom's recipe. I'm going to portion them out for the second raising into aluminum tins and freeze them for later too see how well they do. I'll keep you posted. Because that recipe makes A LOT of rolls and wouldn't it be nice to have them to bake any old time, yum!

I'm dropping a few classics this year (broccoli and cheese casserole and Pineapple Whip) because well it's a lot of work and I am cooking for toddlers and a husband who will and does eat anything. So mostly this is about me and I wanted to try a few new things, but not get overly stressed, so that's my plan.

To make it more focused and aware for the kids I plan on having some crafts and coloring pages with a Thanksgiving theme. Ben doesn't know it, but running those will be his job :D.
Making hand turkeys
Thanksgiving coloring pages
Thankful leaves
Turkey, Turkey, Axe (Duck, Duck, Goose)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope it is filled with family, fun and plenty to be grateful for!
