7 Days of Thanks 2018: Day 1

Preparing for Thanksgiving!

It’s time for 7 Days of Thanks 2018! This is my countdown to Thanksgiving, and I am ready to start preparing for this holiday. So, November 1 I preorder my ham at Honey Baked Ham, but this year I decided to pre-order my Turkey here and not at Safeway like I normally do. Once I place my order, my gears instantly change into Thanksgiving mode, and I have to write out my menu:


  • Honey Baked Ham
  • Turkey
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Corn
  • Green Beans
  • Stuffing
  • Gravy
  • Rolls (homemade)
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Potatoes au gratin
  • Salad
  • Pumpkin Pie

Our traditional menu is above, that is what we have every Thanksgiving. The Menu below is what we like to change every year, we try new recipes to mix it up a bit. So here are our new dishes:

  • Jalapeno Popper Mac and Cheese with Bacon
  • Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Cheese
  • Broccoli Hashbrown Casserole

Now I am so excited to make the Jalapeno Mac and Cheese because it is from the new Disney Festival Cookbook and this was one of my mom and I’s favorite dish from the Food and Wine Festival in Disney California Adventure. What are some of your preparation traditions?
