Thanksgiving Menu

This year we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving with the husband’s family, and I cannot wait for the delicious spread that’s sure to come, and the wonderful company of both my parents and my new extended family. This year is definitely going to bring some changes in our holiday traditions, as we navigate married life, and the combining of each of our family traditions, with those of our own.

We all have that one dish that makes Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving. Our annual family staple is known as ‘Pineapple Stuff,’ basically a sweet pineapple stuffing, and it looks like it’s my job to make it this year! I’m absolutely taken with these early 20th century menus, and the traditions that emerge! Consomme? Assorted candy, nuts and cigarettes? Love it.

What is your favorite it-isn’t-Thanksgiving-without-it dish?
