No oven Thanksgiving

The oven is kaput!  
Well to be honest with you Lovelies it has been this way for about 5 years now and I have been making due with a counter oven.  The counter oven and my regular sized oven are now dearly departed and I am planning a NO OVEN Thanksgiving ~ crazy I know!

So how is the turkey going to be cooked to golden perfection?!?!  Roaster thingy that just cooks the turkey which has been working perfectly the past 5ish Thanksgiving.

Pumpkin has suggested having asparagus or Brussels sprouts instead of our traditional green bean casserole.

Squirt loves pumpkin pie so Jello No Bake pie is on the menu ~ the girls and I will make individual little ones.  

For those of us in the house that do not like pumpkin pie {me and ironically Pumpkin}  we are going to try a Lava Chocolate Cake made in the crock pot. 

Of course we will have stuffing and our favorite smashed potatoes {not mashed - smashed little potatoes pan fried to golden goodness}

We will also be writing down all the things we are thankful for and making our little turkey place mats.

Well, this is the plan as of right now for us to feast on all day Thursday.  
What is on your menu for your day of thanks giving? 

Ja matta ne,
