Thanksgiving Planning

Jason and I sat down today to start thinking about what we want to make for our Thanksgiving dinner.  I’ve been telling my dad for a couple weeks that we are having a tofurky (tofu turkey) as our main dish.  I’m not sure he believes me which is fine, I suppose.  We’re not having a tofurky.

I figured it is getting close to the time when we actually have to start deciding what we are going to have though.  So far, I think we have enough food for at least 15 people.  There will be 4 adults and 3 kids at our meal.  🙂  When we were making our list of foods to have for our meal, Kael made it very clear that he would really like some corn.  It turns out he wanted corn on the cob which is tough to come by this time of year, but he says frozen corn will be alright.  Jason wants the traditional parts of the meal.  He is in charge of the turkey and gravy.  For some reason, I’m fixated on having sweet potatoes, but I do not want the ones that have marshmallows on the top.  We’ll also be having cranberry sauce and cranberry lemonade.  Now, we just need to figure out how to make sure everything gets cooked at the right temperature for the right time and is ready all at once.



  1. Mmmmm sweet potatoes! This year I’m making a big pan the way my one-year-old likes them: chunked, roasted in a little olive oil and salt. So simple, so delicious.

  2. That’s how we usually have them. For some reason, I’m always drawn to try new recipes at holidays and with company. 🙂
