My Thanksgiving Dinner Menu

This year, I am cooking for John's Mom's side of the family. His Mom, grandparents, and uncle & aunt will be here with us. It's a little intimidating, cooking for three seasoned cooks, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything will turn out OK.

**Turkey (of course)--my husband's boss has a turkey fry at his house every year on Wednesday night, so ours will be deep-fried. Yumm.
**Dressing--I am letting John's aunt fix this as I have never made it before! I'm sure it'll be good.
**Green bean casserole
**Sweet potato casserole
**Cornbread salad
**Mac 'n' cheese

**Fresh apple cake
**Fudge pie with cool whip

Tomorrow I will bake the cake and the pie and also make the cornbread salad. It's always better the next day anyway! Thankfully, my husband is pretty good in the kitchen, so he'll be helping with the other stuff on Thursday. As long as he doesn't try to take over, that is--it's still MY kitchen! :)

We'll probably have to be rolled away from the table! But I'm so thankful to have family to spend the holiday with.
