Giving Thanks- Thanksgiving Day Menu

Giving Thanks I am joining the ~Giving Thanks~ celebration this week. Monday through Thursday we are sharing as we prepare for Thanksgiving. Stop by Kelli's and see what others are up to this week. Or join in the fun by signing onto Mr. Linky and share how you are preparing for this special holiday.

Here are some things you could share:

-What you are thankful for
-Thanksgiving traditions and memories
-Recipes
-Crafts
-Decorating ideas
-Your menu
-Cleaning/Organizing "before" and "after" pictures
-Anything having to do with Thanksgiving!



Here is my Thanksgiving Day Menu:


Appetizers:
Cheese ball and Crackers
Veggies and Dip



Dinner:

Turkey

Dressing

Mashed Potatoes/ Gravy

Rolls and Butter

Green Bean Casserole

Corn

Mandarin Orange Salad


Dessert:
Pumpkin Pie/Whipped Cream



This is my original menu and usually additional delicious side dishes are brought in by my beautiful daughters-in-law. I love that because it gives a taste of their favorite foods and we learn about traditions from their families, too. It is all about making and sharing memories with our families and friends during the holidays. The favorite foods become intertwined with our experiences with each other. It brings great comfort to us to remember the love and joy that we feel as we gather on this special occasion to thank God for supplying us with all that we have. Our family, homes, food,clothes, and all the extras that are our bounty.

Hi Linda,
We don't celebrate Thanksgiving Day here in Portugal but I think we should because we are to be thankful for so many things.

And I love your blog. Thanks for visiting me.
God bless you and your family.

I'm curious about your mandarin orange salad. Is there a recipe you can share?? I'm looking for a good fruit salad to add to our menu.

Thanks

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. Your thanksgiving memu is much like ours....I triple the green bean casserole and that is only for 6 people! I also do a pumpkin pie cake instead of the pie...they can't leave that alone either!

Looks so yummy. My family always does a mandarin orange salad too. I'm glad you posted appetizers...it reminded me that I forgot to add those to my own menu! I hesitate to put too much out because I want people to come to the table hungry, but then again, guests need something to snack on while I'm busy in the kitchen! Thanks for sharing.
