Thanksgiving Prep

Must not forget the veggies!


It's all about the sides, 'bout the sides, no turkey.....  Just jumping on the bandwagon with all the parodies of Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" song.   Really, I do like the turkey on Thanksgiving, but after loading up on sides, I usually only have a few bites of turkey.  Turkey is best for the leftovers:  Turkey soup, turkey tetrazzini, turkey sandwiches, turkey enchiladas, turkey salad and more.
Most of these side dishes are wacky and fun, but you may just find some gems among my skewered recipes! Click on each photo to make really big!

I'm guessing you could do this any flavor Jello! Easy-peasy, no clean-up!

We tend to serve fresh green beans today, but this casserole always disappears!

More marshmallows than yams.  Yum!

Stove Top is great, just add a few fresh ingredients and no one will know.  Be sure to destroy the boxes.
A gift card from Audrey and Jeff one year.  I still love this!

Turkey Sugar Cookies made with Pillsbury ready-bake cookies!  Easy, Festive!

I still serve this pumpkin ice-cream pie with a prepared graham cracker pie crust.  It's light, refreshing and delicious!
Don't forget to wear your drumstick hat!

If you really do not want to fuss, just pick up that old stand-by from Swanson's!

I probably will not be making any of the above, except, maybe the hat!  I look forward to spending Thanksgiving with 30 members of my family.  We don't cook anymore, we go out!

That drumstick hat is crazy cool.

The jello in a can of pineapple is just hilarious! Would it taste a bit tinny?!! (We call can's, tin's in the UK).

Hi ES!
I agree with you, the pineapple and lime jello mold may taste a bit different made in a tin can! It's so convenient though AND no wash-up!
