Yes, it is November. Enough of the October "Pink". That doesn't mean we forget and still do things for breast cancer, but we need to go on. The "Pink" obviously works as if you saw GMA this morning, Amy was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. This was her first ever mammogram and she did it in October to go along with the "Pink" campaign. 

1. Do you have Thanksgiving plans yet?

2. What is your favorite side dish for Thanksgiving?

3. What is your favorite dessert for Thanksgiving (trying to get ideas as we were invited to a friends home and was asked to bring dessert)?

Nice summaton and thoughts and prayers for Amy, I didn't see that. 

We will see my dad and my family.  Homemade stuffing.   My favorite dessert is pecan pie, We all bring a dessert to my sister's house and I may make sweet pumpkin muffins, they're quick and easy, Lol.

Stuffing

Pie.  And if I were invited somewhere and asked to bring dessert, I would ask the hostess if "the basics"   (pumpkin, pecan, apple pie) were covered, and if not, I would make one of them.  I think people in general want traditional comfort food on Thanksgiving, not novelty.   If I invite someone for Thanksgiving and they ask if they can bring something, I show them the menu and say, "If there is something that just screams "Thanksgiving" to you that is not on this list, please feel free to bring it and share your tradition with us.  Otherwise, just bring yourself.  We're so glad you are coming."

I am looking for something that says Thanksgiving but maybe in a different form. Instead of a pie, maybe a bar or cookie or something else. Last year I brought my caramel apple pie. One of their children is going to school to be a chef so she made an apple pie too but didn't know until the last minute what they were making at school but we all enjoyed both of them.

A caramel apple pie sounds delicious.   My sister's daughter is a pastry chef for a fancy resturant, she makes some pretty interesting stuff that I can't even pronounce much less spell, Lol.  Last year she made some kind of tart and drizzled chocolate over it, I don't know what surprise she'll come up with this year.

My sister does Thanksgiving every year, Of the fifty-ish people that go some bring their "regular" dishes which are always the traditional sides and desserts.

Please don't tell me that Amy got her mammo just because it was October, or that Pinktober is what inspired her to get one. She's 40. She should have been talking about mammograms with her gyn for a very long time (even if she didn't need a baseline until 40.)

Yeah, it is really good. I always like to try new things but I have made this a few times and it comes out good.

Yes she did. Robin actually inspired her and coaxed her to do it and she did on, on TV that day. This was the first time she has ever had it and said she most likely would have kept pushing it off if it wasn't for this.
