A Whole Lotta Thanksgiving Recipes

I'm so excited because Thanksgiving is a mere 2 days away. Though I ate my body weight in turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and more on Sweatsgiving, somehow I'm still not sick of it yet. Bring me more! And in case you are still on the hunt for a dish to bring to dinner, I'm rounding up a whole bunch of my own that would work fabulously. I'm trying some new things this year, which I'll be sure to tell you about! For dinner at Shaun's aunt's house, I'm bringing my grandmother's famous cranberry sauce mold and a Brussls sprouts and bacon dish. And for dessert at my aunt's house? I'm going with traditional pumpkin pie! Just thinking about it makes me hungry...

Anyhow, happy recipe hunting!
