I can’t believe next week is Thanksgiving 2013! This year has gone by so fast. Last year I was sick as a dog and didn’t feel like doing anything at all for any of the Holiday’s. This year, they all sort of crept up on me. I’m not the least bit prepared.
My sister-in-law messaged me last night and asked if we had decided what to do for Thanksgiving this year. Our house is where we all congregate for events so we always have parties and the big dinners here. I had completely forgotten about Thanksgiving dinner! So, we decided to do Thanksgiving dinner pot luck style this year. That saves one person from having all the cooking and all the cost and makes it so much more enjoyable. She has a turkey and a ham and will bring those. I will be making Cranberry Apple bake with a recipe coming soon, and a couple other things. And everyone else has been asked to bring 2 dishes. I even created a Facebook event so we can all post what we are making and there won’t be 4 dishes of sweet potatoes! It works great!
To make my shopping easier, I always make a list. (Sometimes I even remember to bring it to the store.) I made one up this year that has just about everything one might expect to find on a Thanksgiving shopping list. I don’t buy all the items on it typically but I’ve seen some of the things, like mushrooms, on other Holiday lists so I thought I’d add as many things as I could think of and share that list with you all. Feel free to download and print it out to take to the store with you when you do your Thanksgiving dinner shopping. I hope you find it useful.
Don’t forget to print your free Autumn banner to decorate for Thanksgiving too!!!
