Calling All Turkeys

Dear Readers,

Today I ask your input. I don’t often ask things of you because, frankly, I’m afraid no one will answer. But today I’m asking. Thanksgiving is fast approaching and this year I’m allowed to contribute! WAHOO! In addition to making the pies for my family’s Adirondack feast, I’m thinking I’d like to make something special. Something different. I come from a family that is BIG on tradition, and we don’t really like change. But this year I want to try. Just a little. Just to see how it feels.

I found a recipe for chestnut soup but I’m not sold on it, and I’d love to hear from you! What are your families’ specialties? Any regional dishes? Any recipes brought over from Europe, Asia, Africa, that have since been integrated into the food-fueled American holiday? You don’t have to post the whole recipe, but I’d love to hear about anything that falls outside the realm of Stove Top stuffing and green bean casserole.

Leave ’em in the comments, friends. I do appreciate it.

Love always and forever amen,
Lauren E.

    Dutch Butter Cake. It is SO good.

    My brother usually makes a chipotle mac n cheese which is insanely good. Last year, I made sweet potato gnocchi, also delicious but requires a pretty big time commitment.

    Butternut squash soup, Tomato Bisque…

    Make some kind of mac n cheese. Jazz it up in some creative way. You know everyone will eat it and it makes great left overs. Also, some other kind of sweet other than pies.

  5. I know, dupa. Nothing different at all for you.
