Thanksgiving Dinner

I saw a commercial that said Thanksgiving dinner is the most anticipated meal of the year. I couldn't agree more. And as such, I want to remember what I served my first time hosting Thanksgiving dinner.


Knorr Spinach Dip
Cheeseball (made by Diana)

Main Meal

Turkey and Gravy
Mashed Potatoes
World's Best Dinner Rolls with Cinnamon Butter
Stuffing (made by my Grandma Ford)
Cranberry Sauce
Yam and Apple Casserole (made by my mom)

Cranberry Punch
(I had to get this recipe from Roger's cousin, Kathy. It is crazy good and I can't imagine Thanksgiving dinner without it!)

4 cups cranberry juice
4 cups pineapple juice
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 Tbsp almond extract
2 quarts ginger ale

Mix all but ginger ale together. Add ginger ale when ready to serve. Use frozen cranberries instead of ice to keep it cold.


Blueberry Pie (made by Mariah)
Pecan Pie Bites (made by Mariah)
Mini Pumpkin Cupcakes
Pumpkin Pie (from Costco)
Double Cream Blueberry Pie (from Marie Callender's)

I think it was a successful first attempt at the most anticipated meal of the year!
