Thanksgiving, Monday, Oct 8 (Canada)

I can't believe none of us have started this thread. What are you planning? I'm still working on the details...what are the rest of you cooking for Thanksgiving?

We're going to kick off "eating season" with a bang this weekend. Having family over on Saturday night for prime rib (sides etc to be named later), then Sunday will be at my MIL's for turkey and all the rest. I never get enough turkey dinner though, so I might do my own turkey dinner on Monday. LOL! I'm going to do green tomato mince tarts, that much I know!

Next week, my brother and his wife are in town for a bit so I'll do a giant ham, scalloped potatoes and I'll figure out the sides later.

I was thinking of starting this thread but was too busy being pampered and spoiled rotten today!

I am planning a ham dinner with all the fixings for Monday as DH has to work Sunday and is then off Monday (after being off all this week on vacation but didn't have another day to cover Sunday). The guest list keeps changing as the family members in town that live out of town and visa versa keep changing.

Hey, I will make the food and they will come!

I will be making two pumpkin pies, one regular and one gluten/dairy/egg free. First time trying to figure this one out but I think I have it figured out.
