Thursday Thirteen - Thanksgiving Foods

Our family actually celebrated Thanksgiving in the US early. Still, I wanted to pay tribute to the holiday if only in a frivolous way. Here are thirteen foods besides the ubiquitous turkey that have graced the family table:

1. Mixed nuts - from the can, not the family tree, thank goodness

2. Cheese cubes

3. Vegetable tray

4. Green bean casserole

5. Cranberry sauce

6. Rolls

7. Sweet potato casserole

8. Cheese ball and crackers

9. Taco dip and chips

10. Dad's outrageous stuffing full of chestnuts and rice and bread

11. Pumpkin roll - a favorite of mine from my sister-in-law

12. Cherry cheesecake

13. Pumpkin pie and whipped cream, of course

  1. Oh, good heavens you've made me so hungry - and most of that is stuff I can't get over here! AUGH!!! :(

    Still, I hope you had a merry celebration with your family/loved ones.

    Happy TT!

  3. I have never had green bean casserole in my entire life. I love seeing the cultura/regional differences around major holidays in the US. :)


    Happy T13,

  5. I'm wondering if your sweet potato casserole is anything like my candied yams.
