Thanksgiving Eve: A Menu

Happy Thanksgiving Eve, lovelies!

With my family situation, the holidays are always a difficult time for me. This year I am reminded how blessed I am to have those friends in my life who have become the family I do not have. It is with these friends that I will be celebrating Thanksgiving...twice. So tomorrow will be a busy day for me!

The first dinner is a potluck, and I'm in charge of cake. There's this adorable little bakery by my office. Cake...Check!

The second dinner is all on me. I'll be going over to a friend's house, but will be the one doing all the cooking. I'm keeping the menu pretty simple since I won't be able to devote all day to the cooking like I have in years past.

Hashbrown Casserole
Haricot Verts (recipe from one of my very favorite girls, Ally over at Copacetic in Carolina)
Macaroni and Cheese

Recipes and pictures to follow this weekend!

What will you be having for Thanksgiving?


  1. Oh my goodness, I'm tickled pink & honored. And my Mom will be pleased as punch. I've mentioned you several times to her - she'll love that you're making her recipe for people you love dearly. What a compliment! Thank you so much. And I truly mean this: I'm wishing you a day of abundant JOY. NO one I know deserves big joy more than you :) Love you to pieces Miss C!

  2. WAH! I love this photo! One of my very favorite Snoopy episodes ever! Your menu sounds delish. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I love the Charlie Brown photo. I am spending Thanksgiving with friends too. I am stuck with appetizers.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. I really love this post I will visit again to read your post in a very short time and I hope you will make more posts like this.
