DH comes home soon (Yay!) and he has informed me just how busy our schedules are going to be next week with with like 5 Thanksgiving Dinners we are going to, andddd I guess we are hosting one of our own. Cool, whatever. He asked me to go get all of the stuff so we can prep things ahead of time. Aside from yams, green bean cassarole, and mashed potatoes...Idk what to do. lol.

So if you could give me some side dishes and if you have an amazing recipe to go with it, that would be great!

I didn't even think of Pinterest! Even though every attempt at recreating a Pinterest recipe has been a fail. Lol. At least it tastes good, right!? Haha

Yeah, these are just giving me a basic idea. I most likely wont follow the recipes exactly cause almost every pinterest recipe Ive made has also been awful. I have made the corn casserole before (not the same recipe) and it was amazing!

I made these last year, and I hate sweet potatoes but rest of the family loves em. But even *I* had one of these!

And this is really good and not the norm

I also make this..I really do not like the typical greenbean casserole, i think it tastes icky with the cream of mushroom soup. SO I made this but I used 3 different types of mushrooms and made this amazing mushroom gravy , I almost decided to just eat that instead ^.^ Used white buttons, portabello and oyster. It was AMAZINGGGGGG! I fine red onions make better crispy yumminess than white or yellow

also, this website is great for recipes. Unlike with pinterest, you can read the ratings and reviews to know beforehand if the recipes are worth trying :)

a friend of mine made that exact corn casserole for us and it was great! She has been making it for YEARS. It's awesome and the stuffin muffins are a great idea that I'm going to use. Thanks!
