Thanksgiving Eats

Most people don’t spend a day of their honeymoon with their families. But Dustin and I aren’t most people. Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays, and when we decided to have our wedding around Thanksgiving, we knew that instead of a traditional reception, we wanted to have Thanksgiving dinner with our family–not families, anymore. It’s cheesy, but we’re really excited that just days after our wedding, we’ll be celebrating our first Thanksgiving together with our newly united family.

We’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner at our cabin, so I’ll probably be doing most of the cooking. I’ve wanted to host a huge holiday dinner for a long time, so even though I have a gut feeling I’m getting myself into WAY more than I can handle, I can’t wait.

This is what I’m cooking (all of this with fresh ingredients, organic and local if possible):
-Turkey that’s been brined overnight in a homemade concoction, stuffed with oranges, garlic, and onion
-Coca-Cola Ham (maybe)
-Sweet Potato Casserole
-Mac and Cheese
-My mom-in-law’s monkey bread
-Spicy Green Beans
-Jalapeno Corn Bread (maybe)
-Homemade Cranberry Sauce
-Ginger Peach Upside Down Cake (maybe)
-Grasshopper Pie (maybe)
-Homemade Chex Mix
-Banana Bread (maybe)
-more stuff
-even more stuff
