Portable Thanksgiving

ilawjakul | Oct 4, 2013 07:53 AM

I know it might be a little early, but I really like to plan in advance. This year, my husband and I are going to spend Thanksgiving at my mother-in-law's. Since she always has so much going on, we would like to be able to bring Thanksgiving dinner so she won't have to worry about it. The problem is she lives about 2.5 hours away, and I'm worried about make-ahead dishes. I hate reheating in the microwave, but I never seem to have much luck with reheating in the oven =/

Any tips, inspiration, or good make ahead recipes would be much appreciated (especially any concerning Brussels sprouts ^-^)

Some things to consider:

We can usually not stay more than 1 day due to our own work and school schedules

My MIL has a very small, basic kitchen (she doesn't really cook)

My hubs also has a teenage daughter who is sweet and wonderful, but I've only seen her eat French fries, or pizza. Any inspiration for something she'd want to eat would a serious bonus! =)
