|Last year’s Thanksgiving pies (not all are pictured).
And that’s why I refuse to go to Thanksgiving anywhere but my Grandma’s.
Thanksgiving is a huge tradition in my family. HUGE. It’s our big day where we all get together. We always go to my Grandma Woodward’s house and usually there are 50-80 people for dinner (my Grandma has 11 kids!). In my 31 years, I can remember just 4 Thanksgivings somewhere other than Grandma’s house. We love all of Grandma’s cooking…the turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, stuffing, cranberry relish and of course, the pies.
If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner at your house, slow cookers are a wonderful way to cook portions of dinner. One recipe that you may want to seriously consider making this Thanksgiving in your slow cooker are mashed potatoes. This recipe is truly delicious and allows you to make it ahead of time.
