If you are like me, the Thanksgiving menu comes together at the last minute. This year I am so glad that my sister took charge. "Here's what you're making," she wrote me in an email. Weee! I love take-chargers. Here's her plan:

Sounds great! Hope we'll be seeing a recipe for those (dairy free?) cheesecake bites! :D

Ricki, you'll have to get with my sister on those : ) What I love about these raw cheesecakes (as you well know), is that you can make and freeze ahead of time.

Love your menu, Lex! I wish we could all have a Thanksgiving meal together. How absolutely amazing that feast would be. Your meal sounds like it will be fabulous! I love it when someone takes charge and tells me exactly what to do. Sometimes all of the decisions just wear me out. ;) Hope you are feeling amazing!

Love it when someone else plans the menu and tells me what to bring. I will be making your mashed potatoes. This is our first dairy-free gluten-free Thanksgiving, so I had to start earlier this year planning.

I made the pumpkin pie with the maple pumpkin pie filling. The entire family said it was the best pumpkin pie I have made to date! WOW!

I am allergic to gluten, dairy, and eggs. So that pie was really nice to find! I made a different gluten-free crust.

Thanks so much!
