thanksgiving drinks, menu, dessert, table and leftovers!

In the two weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, it seems to be impossible to talk about anything else. Obviously I’m guilty. Next Thursday can’t come soon enough!

And as much as I love our LA Thanksgivings, I have to admit that I’m also really missing our annual “Pre-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving” with friends this year. Things would definitely be different (think more babies and less drinks) but oh what fun we had! (Whine over.)

What are you cooking this year? I’m making a challah stuffing for my work potluck this week and probably some sort of vegetable next week. Still need some inspiration? I’ve rounded up the best drinks, menus, desserts, and my favorite – leftovers!

PS: This Thanksgiving is also the first night of Hanukkah…and THANKSGIVUKKAH was born! (It’s been a fun holiday on pinterest – think sweet potato latkes and pumpkin pie sufganiyot!)

    My family all cooks together on Thanksgiving, but I always bring the pie and make the vegetable. This year’s pies include Rustic Apple Rhubarb Tart, Classic Pumpkin, and Pecan Pie Cheesecake. And I’m making Ina Garten’s roasted broccoli, because it’s one of my favorite foods on the planet. Can’t wait!
