My Thanksgiving Meal Contributions (2013)

Happy Thanksgiving week! In just a few days my husband and I will head “over the river and through the woods” to my parent’s house. Most of my mom’s side of the family will be together for the first time in quite a few years. This is also the first time we’ve been with my parents for Thanksgiving as a married couple! I offered to bring a few things for the meal and my Mom was happy to assign a few dishes to me. Here’s what I’m contributing to the meal….

Thanksgiving 2014 -3

Green Bean Casserole
There are a ton of variations on this recipe, but I’m making the basic version found on the can of French’s fried onions.

 

Relish Tray
No Thanksgiving meal would be complete (to me) without a relish tray for pre-mealtime snacking. I’m going to fill mine with pickles, green peppers, carrots, celery, cucumber and olives. I wish I could serve it on this tray, as every single person at our Thanksgiving meal is a UK fan. Go Cats!

Cheese Ball
I found this festive cheese ball on Pinterest a couple years ago, and I’m finally getting a chance to make it! There’s not a recipe to accompany this pic, so I’m going to use this recipe from Taste of Home…minus the pecans to make it look like a pumpkin. 🙂

What are your Thanksgiving plans?

  2. My prayer is that the weather does not prohibit our travel. I am getting tired of packing a suitcase, and not going anywhere.:( Your contribution sounds nummy. We are looking forward to this Thanksgiving.
