...I shared this photo on Instagram last week with the comment:
Everyone mostly agreed with me, except apparently Katie, who will be hosting our family for the first time this year, so gets the biggest vote!
Our menu has evolved over the years, but it looks like it's going to get a big makeover this year.
We want to balance healthy with "special" and neither of us wants to spend too much time cooking. Especially since Sara won't be arriving until Thursday morning and I'll be driving to the airport instead of cooking a turkey!
|the latest Southern Living magazine...that started the whole thing!|
especially these two:
|roasted vegetable salad - completely make ahead, too|
|pumpkin pecan pie - combines two favorites into one pie|
roasted turkey breast and gravy
butternut squash macaroni and cheese
(new) roasted vegetable salad
(new) pumpkin pecan pie
rum raisin ice cream
I have to say, I'm really looking forward to the day, the dinner, and whatever new traditions we make. Our family is going to be together...and that's really the only part that matters. (well, that, and the rum raisin ice cream ;-)
