The Girl (his girlfriend) is also coming, so we're going to have a joint birthday celebration this weekend since her 21st birthday is the day before Thanksgiving. Bring on the cake! Oh, and we're also having lasagna. ;)
My father-in-law will be here in a week, so pretty soon we'll have a full house. That makes me very happy.
I have my Thanksgiving menu all planned (I have had it planned for about a month now...I love the holidays). This time next week, I'll be in the kitchen baking pies and doing the prep work for the big day.
Here is my menu...
- mashed potatoes
- sweet potato casserole (have to make a double batch because my nephew will be here!) ;)
- corn casserole
- peas and pearl onions
- homemade noodles
- homemade rolls
- cranberry sauce (and I admit to using the jellied sauce because I'm the only one who will eat the 'good' homemade stuff)
- pecan pie
- pumpkin pie
- Dutch apple pie
