Thanksgiving Dinner

As I was putting together our Thanksgiving menu I came across last years list and made a decision to simplify as much as I could. I was prepared to make fresh pies then resorted to baking frozen pies. But after tasting a pie at the staff Thanksgiving meal I bolted to Sam's Club after school and bought four pies from the bakery! I felt a huge weight lifted knowing I didn't have to bake that night.

Cream Cheese dip
Mixed nuts

Mashed Potatoes - instant instead of peeling fresh
Candied yams
corn - our frozen summer corn
Green Bean Casserole
Deviled eggs
Rolls - bought frozen instead making from scratch
Gravy - canned turkey gravy from GFS
Cranberry sauce - canned instead of making a salad
