Thanksgiving 2011

So, I'm already starting to plan for Thanksgiving, and I'm pretty excited since this will be my first one on my own. What are some of your favorite things to make? Is anyone going to try a new/different theme this year? I'm leaning towards gourmet Martha Stewart style.

Yeah, it is pretty early to be planning, but I'm really excited about it. When I lived at home with my parents, I didn't get to make many new/gourmet things, because they were pretty picky, so this year i plan on going ALL out, lol.

i like your enthusiasm.

it's so early, though, you could start a garden for the veggies and raise your own turkey by then.

Thats a good idea, haha, but I live in Phoenix, AZ so it might be a bit hot for a poor little turkey.

No silly! I pick a different cuisine each year and make a 5-7 course meal. We have a turkey dinner about 4 times a year, I like Thanksgiving to be special.
