We have a tradition in our family not to serve a traditional Thanksgiving meal in our home. We have turkey and the fixings at both my mom's house and Bob's family's get together. Our primary reason, though, for having a nontraditional Thanksgiving meal is Ashley, as she simply despises Thanksgiving food. I mean ALL OF IT. Turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, stuffing, pumpkin pie.... nothing tastes good to her. She eats noodles and rolls at my mom's house and nothing at the Steffes' house. She tells them she is full from my mom's dinner!
At our house this year we are contemplating having Irene's meatloaf, Bob's macaroni and cheese, smashed potatoes and cauliflower and Pioneer Woman's green beans. I might make some cornbread to go with it. Ashley hasn't decided on the appetizers or dessert yet. Any one else out there go with a nontraditional meal?
