Pumpkin Cornbread- Thanksgiving Family Feast

Pumpkin Cornbread

Every year I add a new dish to my Thanksgiving menu so that by the time Pierre and I have purchased our dream kitchen, in whatever place it might be, either in a city apartment or country house, I will have the m0st amazing Thanksgiving spread to offer our guests. My first Thanksgiving dinner, in Sweden, was a potluck and three couples (all American-wives and Swedish-husbands) got together and put our dishes together.

 It was fine..I was really stressed since I had the turkey and Pierre managed to slice his finger open, just as I started to film, but whatever... it was a Thanksgiving to remember..not the best, but at least gave me enough motivation to continue the tradition.
One of the great things about not being able to spend Thanksgiving at home is that it forces you to learn how to cook these recipes that you grow up with. Even though my Granny didn't write down her recipes I use my "oral memory" to recreate the same tastes and that is what it is all about anyway!

So, do I have a future Thanksgiving invitation list in my head?

You better believe it but are YOU on it??

Blog Question: Do you eat the same food on Thanksgiving and Christmas???
