This year she’s trying out Stuffed Acorn Squash, filled with rice, onions and mushrooms. It sure sound delicious.
As Holly at The Coconut Head’s Cancer Survival Guide reminds us in How to Be the Perfect Guest for Thanksgiving, it’s always a nice gesture to bring a side dish when you’re a holiday guest. And sometimes it’s an assurance that there will be at least one dish at the meal that you like to eat. (sorry, Aunt name as been removed to protect the blogger)
I enjoy hosting Thanksgiving at our home. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, because the focus is on family (and food). Corrine at Wondermom Wannabe is sharing some great tips on how plan for and host a large Thanksgiving meal. If you’re hosting at your home this year, you have to check out her tips to make everything go smoother this year.
I’ve found that some side dishes can be transferred into a pretty bowl for serving, but other dishes do better remaining in their original casserole dish. I want to make those side dishes that I serve in the casserole dish look pretty, too, and so I have crocheted casserole dish cozies.
Crochet until the bottom measures the size of your casserole dish.
I made 2 cozies. I single crocheted the sides and only added the chained ruffle at the top. This pattern makes a denser cozy and would be good if you were transporting the dish to a potluck party.
I always like to bring a hostess gift when I’m a guest at a holiday party and this cozy would be perfect., just like The Coconut Head suggests.
