Favorite Thanksgiving Dish

I love Thanksgiving. It was always the big holiday in my family. Everyone kind of went their separate ways at Christmas but Thanksgiving it was "be there or be square". I don't really get to have Thanksgiving with my fam since I moved away from Texas, but I can get a taste of it from certain dishes.

By the way, Thanksgiving makes me immediately think of several things:

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

Macy's Parade (a must see in my world)

The beginning of A Christmas Story season (which maybe should have been my favorite movie for the movie challenge because I watch it roughly 1 trillion times a year and love it every time).

Casie's look:

Watergate Salad Recipe

Cool Whip
Pistachio Instant Pudding
Canned Crushed Pineapple
Chopped Pecans
Mini Marshmallows
**Stir it all together, and what you get is LOVE

I may be alluding a little too heavily to my Southerness here, but it is NOT Thanksgiving for me without my Watergate salad. It might be a strange concoction (see recipe above- and by the way, the nuts MUST be pecans), but it is GOOD.

Thank you Aunt Roselyn for gifting this food into my life.

I feel that my sweater is a lovely representation of the colors of my dish- minty green, yellow for pineapples, the whiteness of Cool Whip. mmmmmmm......

sweater- Cabi, Ebay
jeans- Old Navy, hand me down from Ali
tank- Target

Jillian's look:

mmmmm.....pumkin pie. Sort of the star of the Thanksgiving dessert world.

Kim's look:

Kim likes Turkey and Stuffing. Personified by the boyfriend sweater and jeans, it is a classic in fashion and on your Thanksgiving table.

Don't foreget, we are off for the holiday until Monday.

  1. I can't turn up my nose at anyone's weird-sounding salads. My family makes Cookie Salad for each holiday and my Mormon in-laws put veggies in their Jello. And it's all delicious. :)
