I am packing up for a 7AM flight to Philly tomorrow to spend Thanksgiving with Dave’s family.  This year I will be tackling half of the menu (Rich, Dave’s Dad, is tackling the other half, with Deb, Dave’s Mom picking up desserts).  I am pretty excited to give a few classics a new update and I have been enjoyed reading about everyone else’s preparations in the blog world.  I just wanted to share with you our planned menu, with links to online recipes when they exist.  Hopefully, I will get a chance to blog about the actual dishes later and I will update the links.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I know that I am very thankful to have Dave and his family in my life, that my parents are healthy and are spending their Thanksgiving in FL with my dad’s family.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving Whitney! Have a safe trip to Philly and enjoy the holiday!

  2. I love cranberries, and for the past four years I have made a cranberry-apple-pear-orange relish. Spiced w. cardamom. It’s good.
