    Thanksgiving is only a week away!?! Most of us are looking forward to spending time with family as well as eating that delicious traditional feast!

    What are your pregnant tastebuds already craving the most for Thanksgiving Dinner?

    Is there anything new that you have never enjoyed in the past, but can't wait to try?

    It will be interesting to see what your body is longing for as far as tastes and nutritional purposes are concerned this year for Thanksgiving! :)

    Best Wishes!

    I told my mom two months ago that I wanted my favorite squash casserole (people always say "yuck! squash?"...but it's SO good and rich....*drool*). We didn't have it last year because I had just had a big surgery and was about to have another and my mom thought it was too much for me to take. That just goes to show how fattening it is :p lol

    I don't think I've ever had something at Thanksgiving I haven't liked though, just some things go over better than others (unless my MIL is cooking then I'll just stick to the dessert table, which I don't have to worry about this year because we're not going to their house for thanksgiving.)

    oh my gosh.... creamed turkey is like a party in your mouth! lol! basically all you do is cut the turkey off the bone, chop it up into smaller pieces and mix it with the leftover turkey gravy and pour it over mashed potatoes. Delish!

    Stove Top Stuffing is what I'm looking forward to most.

    This year I'm going to try a new recipe "Carmel Apple Salad".

    I hope everybody has a wonderful holiday!

    Oh god, everything that's on our Thanksgiving menu sounds AMAZING at this point. Especially since I'm finally getting over my M/S!!!

    I'm making artichoke and cheese stuffed mushrooms to bring to my family's get-together. I read the recipe on foodnetwork.com and was immediately drooling! lol.

    I am so with you, in fact I've been roasting a turkey breast once a week just for sandwiches the entire pregnancy. Like you said on good bread, with mayo, and salt and pepper. It totally hits the spot!!

    I also love the turnips my MIL makes, they are like mashed potatoes but SO much better. My husband makes and awesome bread, the boys call it "home bread". You actually make it in an Le Cruset pot, if you like crusty rustic bread look online for it just using those key words. We found the recipe in the NY Times and it is a staple in our house.

    Now if a genie would just come and clean my home, keep the kids in line, set-up and clean-up I would be in heaven!!
