    this is the only holiday i do not host. (i do all the jewish holidays). my secular sister does thanksgiving. so i contribute home made cranberry dressing (and i make it tart, my favorite)

  3. I’m not making anything special this Thanksgiving. I might make a Thanksgiving themed Shabbat dinner though. I’m still deciding.

  4. avatar says: LMinkow

    We’re probably going to grill some steak and lots of veggies, since we’re a little turkey-ed out lately.

  5. avatar says: Leez

    everything looks absolutely delishes! We are not making a thanksgiving dinner. Maybe we will have a turkey on shabbos.

  6. avatar says: ohyoucook

    Making stuffing and pecan pie … traveling to ILs.

  7. avatar says: shuly

  8. Nothing special on Thanksgiving but maybe a pumpkin pie if there’s someone going to my son’s Yeshiva motzei Shabbos to deliver it.

    I know it would be so nice to be able to tell you what exciting things i am making for Thanksgiving or most probably what i am helping my son and daughter in law make. The truth of the matter is that i was recently in the hospital and am unable to fly to my son and daughter in law this year to celebrate with them. They are fantastic cooks and love to entertain. This year will be spent most probably watching tv and deciding that i can easily make for myself in 1/2 hour or less in the hope that next Thanksgiving and hopefully well before that i am able to travel and we can enjoy each others company and food. I would love to win the mat for my son and daughter in law and in this way i can have the excitement of having won as well as the thrill of gifting them something truly fantastic and i know they can really use it Thank you for your consideration.

    Turkey, my favorite green bean casserole, fresh baked yams casserole with brown sugar, butter, cream, and topped with pecans; homemade pull apart rolls and a freshly baked lemon-zest pound cake with strawberries.

  13. I do not make Thanksgiving supper but but it all looks very nice.

  14. avatar says: imergoot

    Can’t wait to start cooking. It is almost like getting ready for seder. I love that most of our family will be together and then do it all again for Shabbat. Missing my son and daughter in law and their kids though.

  15. avatar says: mglawler

    I am cooking our gluten free Thanksgiving at a friend’s house! We will be doing turkey, stuffing and chocolate pecan pie!

  16. avatar says: maklady

    Unfortunately my husband and I are out of town working,so I won’t be able to cook this Thanksgiving. All of the food above looks delicious!

  17. We’re having individual Cornish game hens, stuffing (not dressing, stuffing) and gravy; mashed potatoes, spicy sweet potatoes, asparagus, spinach and glazed carrots. We’re skipping apps and desserts.

  18. avatar says: lcheeze

    These dishes all look great! I can’t wait to try some of them!

  19. Love the marshmallows on the sweet potatoes. Just blogged about it too!
    Enjoy the holiday

  20. avatar says: lcheeze

    We’re having Turkey, candied sweet potatoes, herbed peas and new potatoes, and cloverleaf rolls. There are only 2 of us eating, so that will be more than enough. I may make your sweet potatoes instead of my recipe – your dish looks incredible!

  21. My husband and i are traveling to bring my home cooked meal to my 96 year old mother. We will drive for pproximately 6 hours round trip and know that we will be exhausted afterwards. We have made this trip for over 20 years. I have made pumpkin yeast bread. Will make cranberry applesauce, Harvard beets, roasted kale or Brussels sprouts, green beans, high temperature roast turkey, rice or pasta salad, and mandle bread. Would very much enjoy having this prize. Thank you for the giveaway. To all I wish a safe and festive Thanksgiving. May there ne an everlasting peace for all of our brothers and sisters in Israel.

    My food-maven and chef wannabe 11 year-old son planned our menu: hero sandwiches (custom made to each one’s taste– smoked turkey, salami, or pastrami/ketchup or mustard…), pumpkin muffins, baby corn trifle salad, and cake. We’re still deciding what kind of cake to bake.

I’m making Turkey (mom’s recipe) for the first time, nutella swirled pumpkin bread (a pareve version with chocolate spread rather than nutella – joyofkosher.com/recipe/nutella-swirled-pumpkin-bread/), corn bread (http://www.chefdecuisine.com/baking/bread/BEST_NON_DAIRY_CORNBREAD.php), green bean casserole (http://www.food.com/recipe/i-cant-believe-theres-no-dairy-in-this-green-bean-casserole-339371), sweet potato pie (http://simpledailyrecipes.com/11963/the-best-sweet-potato-pie-recipe-ever-ever/), vegetable soup with flanken (mom’s recipe too), cranberry sauce (really simple), and People magazine (Aaron Sanchez)’s stuffing which I tried already and is amazing (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/aaron-sanchez/chorizo-and-cornbread-stuffing-recipe/index.html). Sister is coming with apple pie, pumpkin pie, and squash pie. Also buying cole slaw and potato salad. Can’t wait!
