A Few Thanksgiving Recipes

This Thanksgiving will be our FIRST married holiday!  I am beyond excited only because we don't have to worry about meeting up to ride together or both of us leaving to go to our separate homes.  This year we're both going back to the same home!!!!!  And this year I'll be  legitimately cooking and responsible for bringing food to family gatherings.  We have 4 (yes, FOUR!!!) Thanksgivings to attend starting Thanksgiving Eve night to Thanksgiving night.  We are going to be so stuffed!!!

I've been Pinteresting like crazy since we got married, and I have a few boards just for food.  I'll be making some of the "regular" Thanksgiving food and trying out a new Pinterest recipe.....or two.  I've listed some of the things I'll be making this year and taking to family functions!

1. Deviled Eggs--You can't ever go wrong with deviled eggs!  These are such a southern staple that I'll have to make a couple dozen!

2. Diabetic Pecan Pie--My husband LOVES pecan pie, and I want him to be able to eat one without over doing it on his sugar.  I actually made this last year, and I think he only had one piece while everyone else ate the rest!  It's pretty good for sugar free!!

3. Crockpot Mac and Cheese--This is a total Pinterest recipe!!!  I'll be trying it out for the first time for Thanksgiving--hope it works!  I've pinned two different recipes for this, but the link is the one I've decided to make.  I'll let y'all know how it goes!  Eeek!!

4. Jiffy Corn Casserole--This is a fantastic recipe that is tried and true!  So, so easy and I actually think you can substitute non-fat plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream.  I won't be doing this for Thanksgiving, but if I were to make it for us for supper one night, I would definitely substitute that along with a few other things.
