Happy Thanksgiving!


Howdy sugars! It's almost turkey day!
Are you excited? Are you cooking? Bringing a dish?
We are going to celebrate with the in law's. As for bringing a dish, this year we're taking it easy and only bring something simple. So I am making Rachael Ray's Cranberry Sauce recipe.
For some reason Baby Whimsy has me craving cranberries.

So tell me what are your plans?

  1. We're celebrating with the in-laws as well, we drive up to see my husband's enormous family every year. We actually have to rent out a room at a country club to fit everyone:) Happy Thanksgiving Juju!

  10. Mmm, cranberry sauce is my favorite! It's definitely a staple for Thanksgiving. My son and I are going over to my aunt's house for our traditional family dinner, but I'm not bringing anything this year--which is a first. Feels weird, but it's nice to have the pressure off.

    Enjoy the sauce! :)

  12. I love Thanksgiving! We're going to my family's at 1pm and I'm bring some sort of veggie dish (I'd better get on that) and then going to the almost-in-laws around 5pm for whom I think I'll just make brownies or cupcakes or something easy!

    Enjoy yours and let baby Whimsy eat whatever she needs! <3

  27. Today's the only day our son got off, so we're visiting him for Thanksgiving. His apartment is tiny, so we're staying in a hotel and I have to tell you, I'm surprised at how crowded it is. Happy Thanksgiving!

  33. My DIL brought a lovely pumpkin cheese cake - and I cooked the rest. Being far away from family, we just always gather close in! (But with all the boys we have, it still is rather large)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I hope Baby Whimsy had her fill of cranberries. ;)

    I'm sure your in laws love having you there to spoil with good food and company. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  37. Hope you had a wonderful holiday Juju! Craving cranberries? That's a new one. :) I remember craving grilled cheese and chocolate shakes.

  38. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. My job was to chop up the veggies that goes into the dishes...onions, celery, etc. But I overslept and my mom did it. I'm so bad :(

    ReplyDelete
  39. I guess you could say this was my first real "adult" Thanksgiving. It was awesome. I did some things and then Christy of Southern Sassy Things and her husband came and joined us with more food! It was the four of us, plus my two girls and it was fabulous. :)

    BTW- your blog is looking pretty spiffy these days. ;)

  40. yum, I *love* cranberries too. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We have so much to be thankful for with these lil babes arriving soon! :)

  41. I also was craving cranberries and made a special dish. But, before anyone could fix their plate at my in-laws, one of the casseroles exploded (it was inadvertently placed on a hot burner) and glass got in all the food. No one ate anything except for a piece of pie!! It was a Thanksgiving to remember, but thankfully no one was hurt.

    1. O no! How awful. And definitely memorable. I recently exploded a pitcher of baby formula like that.

  42. Happy belated Thanksgiving!

    We spent a quiet day at home. We live so far from family it makes traveling to see them during the holidays impossible. Its ok though. The husband is rarely home, but the holiday season usually equates to no training missions. This means we actually get to spend time together so I can't complain. Hopefully our next assignment will take us closer to family.

    I hope yours was wonderful!
