a dish to pass

Only two days until Thanksgiving, the time known for getting together with family around a table full of treats. Some people gather at other homes, some host the feast themselves. Luckily for me, I will be traveling to meet up with family. (I couldn’t cook a Thanksgiving dinner if you paid me!) Where I’m going, each guest has been asked to bring a dish to share. In years past, I would have probably thrown together a simple dessert or my favorite lil’ smokies recipe. But this year, I want to try something different.

With less than 48 hours until we head out of town, I still haven’t decided what I’m going to make! However, I’ve narrowed it down to five options, which I’ll share with you below. I wish I had more time to make them all!
