Stuffing, my mom makes the best ever! Then there is baked corn, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy, turkey, My Salmon Pinwheels, relish tray, a veggies tray, a platter of spinach dip in a bread bowl with lots of bread for dipping. Then for dessert there is always at least 3 different kinds of pies, usually pumpkin, cherry, and apple, a cake, and chocolates. That's the Thanksgiving I grew up with.
Since I have been married, I have been going to the inlaws. There thanksgiving is good too, but not like my Mom's.
Christmas, is extra special because it is my birthday. So we have a big party on christmas eve, and have all sorts of appys, and a big birthday cake for me.
The next day we have some of the leftover appys, a ham, mashed potatoes, dinner rolls, veggies, and what ever anyone else brings.
Last year, my whole family came to my house, we had a blast. We did a prime rib roast, ham, mashed potatoes, and a whole lot of sides.
We really live for the holidays. It is the best time of the year, and my family are foodies, so it has to be big.
