Thanksgiving at my house!

(image from

Since where we moved this past year is centrally located to all of my side of the family it was decided that we would have Thanksgiving dinner at our house.

The nice thing is everyone volunteered to bring certain dishes but they pretty much covered everything and I don't know what to make!

Here is what people already said they were bringing:

Deviled Eggs
Pistachio salad
Cranberry Sorbet
Pumpkin pie

Besides mashed potatoes I don't know what else is missing!

I think I am going to make Marilyn's recipe that she left on my blog giveaway (thanks Marilyn!):

Crock Pot Pumpkin Spiced Latte

2 cups milk (I use 2%)
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, 1/8 tsp ground cloves, and tiny pinch of ground ginger)
3/4 cup strong brewed coffee (or 1/2 cup brewed espresso)
garnish with whipped topping

Add the coffee/espresso and milk to the crockpot. Whisk in the pumpkin, spices, sugar, and vanilla.
Cover and cook on high for 2 hours if everything is cold. Whisk again.
Ladle into mugs, and garnish with whipped cream and additional cinnamon.

But I am not sure what else I am going to make! I feel like I have to make at least a couple of dishes- it IS at my house!

At least I will have a decoration! I just was notified that I was the winner of this cute plaque:
