Thanksgiving

Jay and I are working on the old Thanksgiving menu. We feel like we've covered just about every option in the book and are going back to good old turkey, dressing, gravy, rolls, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole (because what good is an eat-everything holiday if you can't somehow incorporate processed junk from a can?), and sweet potatoes. Oh, and pumpkin pie and apple cobbler, of course

So what are the Thanksgiving staples you can't live without?

We must have this corn casserole thing my mom always made. I'm sure many have seen it - basically corn, corn bread mix and some sour cream and butter - all baked together. Very yummy. We also share in the love for the green bean casserole.

Even though I never liked it, Thanksgiving was never the same without Granmommy's mincemeat pie. All the preparations for it and then the spoon impressions in the pot in the fridge from people "just checking to see if it's okay" are a part of the holiday that will always be missed for me. I will own up to the fact that I still make mock cherry pie every Thanksgiving and Christmas even though I'm the only one that likes it...

I think Jay likes it too, but he might not admit it. He asked--again--if we could have it this year and I reminded him: "Your sister is the ONLY ONE who likes it!" I think he'd like to make it b/c it would be a good reminder of GMME!
