Thanksgiving Yumminess

Don’t you just love Thanksgiving? It’s like Christmas without all the commercialism and stress. It seems like every year we are either traveling or invited to a friends house since we don’t have any family around. Last year our friend’s parents invited us over and the year before that we chowed down at the amazing buffet at Wynn in Las Vegas and the year before that we ate at Denny’s on the way to NYC. Yuck. This year we are going over to another friends’ home and we were asked to bring a vegetable dish. I’ve narrowed it down to two options:

Cauliflower Gratin

OR…

Spiced Butternut Squash

I figure just because it’s a vegetable doesn’t mean it has to be healthy. It is Thanksgiving after all! If there was ever a day to cheat that would be it. Even though we’re spending Thanksgiving at a friend’s house we decided to cook a meal ourselves, too. I bought a cute little ten pound turkey and I plan to cook it up after our Black Friday adventures for Thanksgiving round two. I mostly just want the leftovers since it’s been so many years since I’ve opened a fridge to find stacks of Thanksgiving leftovers. I really can’t remember the last time I had day old turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes hiding under a pool of gravy. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

  1. I just remembered the time we did our “January Thanksgiving” with our 28lb. turk! Holy cow.. What an adventure! As bluh as it was to have Thanksgiving @ Denny’s that one year with you guys, it sure was memorable, ehh? Sure makes me crave some canned cranberry (not!)!
