    Question Who's cooking Thanksgiving and what are you making?

    I'm making Thanksgiving dinner for the first time. I'm doing the normal turkey, stuffing, noodles, potatoes, and green bean casserole, gravy, rolls and some desserts.

    What do you guys make? What are your favorite dishes to serve?

    I make dinner reservations. Only one place is open-choice will be either turkey and dressing or chateaubriand. No cooking. No clean up. And the Cowboy game comes on at 3!

    Noodles?

    It's just about the only time I actually cook, so I'm doing it all.
    Turkey (giant one--usually about 30lb'er)
    Cornbread dressing
    Macaroni and cheese
    Greenbean casserole
    Broccoli casserole
    Marshmallow yams
    Mashed taters
    Gravy (of course)
    Rolls
    Devilled eggs
    Stuffed celery
    And I'll probably buy a chocolate and/or pecan pie. It will be the only thing NOT home-made!

    We are having our work Thanksgiving Luncheon tomorrow. I'm the only girl and I absolutely suck at cooking, so I'll decorate the table and I'm making Banana Cream Pie. All the guys are bringing turkey, ham, eggplant, develed eggs, spanish rice, potato salad and macaroni salad. My husband's the only man actually making Lasagna (delicious). The others will have their mom or wives make it.

    I normally make Chocolate Cream Pie but 3 of them don't like chocolate.
    Into the sunrise. The sunset is sad to me….it only means the night is coming.

    ^^ Don't like chocolate??


    We are going to my grandparents' house like we always have. They will be celebrating their 67th wedding anniversary this Saturday, but we'll have the party on Thanksgiving. 67 years!!

    Grandmother does the turkey, dressing and ham, and all the rest of us bring stuff. I'm making my delicious homemade macaroni and cheese. I'm looking forward to my mom's potato salad-- it's the best in the world. Oh, and my stepdad makes the most incredible pecan pies.

    ^^ My ex's family does dumplings, but they're really just big oblong egg noodles. They're served topped with gravy, so kinda similar maybe? They're yummy!

    Yes. My bf's mom makes homemade noodles.. which is waaayy too much work for me. Especially when you can buy great ones. I buy those the big flat egg noodles. And sometimes I buy the ones in the freezer section, those are really good.

    Y'all are crazy, Thanksgiving was over a month ago.

    You're making my hungry though - maybe I'll celebrate it again...
