Thanksgiving Menu

I just realized Thanksgiving is next week already! Which means Advent starts next Sunday, and before I know it, Christmas will be here! I've been vaguely planning for the holidays for a couple months, but it's time to get serious. I need to make lists, get started on homemade gifts, and decide what is most important this year.

First, though, I need to shop for Thanksgiving dinner. One of my favorite Thanksgivings was the year we moved out here. Since our family was so far away, we decided to drive to Rocky Point, Mexico and camp for the weekend. I had sea bass for dinner, and we camped in the back of our old minivan. It was completely stress-free and wonderful!

This year, it'll be another traditional holiday. Hopefully everyone will be well, since the last few years my sister has either been sick, or stayed away because one of the boys was sick.

Our (boring) menu for this year will be:

Turkey, cooked outside on the grill
Mashed Potatoes (made from scratch)
Gravy (made from scratch)
Green Bean Casserole (which I don't like and have been thinking of buying pre-made)
Rolls (still debating about store-bought and home-made)
Cranberry Relish (deciding between trying to make something fancy or just using store-bought)
Pumpkin Pie
