I’m still a little bit in shock that Thanksgiving is next week. The time has just flown by and the holiday season is rushing toward us! I’ve never hosted Thanksgiving at my own home. We’ve either driven to my parents’ house far away to celebrate or across town to celebrate with Todd’s parents.
We wake up early to watch the Thanksgiving Day parade. We slowly eat a breakfast casserole and sip our coffee. And then the food prep begins. So whether we’re staying in town and driving across town with our food or we’re spending Thanksgiving far away, there are some important traditions that stay the same.
One thing that is always consistent with Thanksgiving for me, though, is the food! I love my side dishes and casseroles. And even though I’ve never hosted, I always fix a couple of my favorite side dishes to bring to someone else’s house to celebrate. I would think it’s a challenge to take a turkey to someone’s home, but I can take a corn casserole or sweet potato casserole.
And when we celebrate at my in-laws’ home, I always get to bring leftovers home with me! Aren’t leftovers the best? Reheated turkey and dressing and sweet potato casserole? Oh my! The Aladdin food storage containers are perfect for leftovers. They are insulated and can go straight from the refrigerator to the microwave.
I’ve been pinning so amazing recipes as inspiration for some of the side dishes I may prepare for Thanksgiving this year over on Aladdin’s Thanksgiving board on Pinterest. These are perfect for making, taking and sharing, and then for bringing home later when you have leftovers. I’ve shared a round-up of some of my favorites.

This is a great time to stock up on food storage containers and those adorable mason jar tumblers for stocking stuffers!
