From Beaujolais Nouveau to Eiswein, there are a whole variety of wines to complement your Thanksgiving dinner.
Thanksgiving means turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and other great things to eat. All that good food deserves something good to drink. Fortunately, your local wine seller has plenty of options for Thanksgiving Day, including the ever popular Beaujolais Nouveau, which goes on shelves Thursday, a week before Thanksgiving “It’s a bottle to celebrate the harvest,” said Calvin Khemmoro of Merchant’s Fine Wine in Grosse Pointe Woods. The red wine, best served chilled, is young (about 6 weeks old) and does not age well. The price of a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau ranges from $8.99-$12.99, Khemmoro said. “People look forward to it,” Khemmoro said. “It’s very fruit forward. It’s very dry.” But if Beaujolais Nouveau is not your style, Khemmoro …

It's Day 2 in Megan's "12 Days of Thanksgiving." On the path of organization, she is focusing on potluck pleasures and family chores.
I never feel bad about delegating, and that's how we do Thanksgiving in my house. This goes for cleaning, too. Today, I’ll ask my sons to wash the dining room windows (I know they’ve been dying to do this) and my husband will help me do a thorough job of dusting my cabinet of tchotchkes, which everyone seems to look at when they come to our home. My husband also is hanging new blinds today that will help cut back on reflection and glare on the television when everyone’s tuned into the Lions at 12:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Day 1, we made a list (Did you make a list? If not, there's time to catch up.) Today, refer to your list and jot down more specifics on what you’d like everyone to do and bring. Carolyn Hefner, owner of The China …

Follow along with Patch Home & Gardens writer Megan Swoyer as she prepares for Thanksgiving, with daily tips to keep readers on track. Today: Get out a pen and start The List.
Thanksgiving 2011 – and once again my husband and I are hosting! Things we work around to make the day special: health issues range from a teen with Crohn’s disease (sensitive to too many fat grams, digestive issues) to an adult who requires a gluten-free diet. With that, fat grams and wheat and gluten factors are top-of-mind (Example: there’s no way I can open a jar of, say, Spartan-brand gravy and call it a day … most mainstream canned and jarred gravy has wheat and gluten ingredients, not to mention fat grams aplenty). Other challenges: Between family members attending or volunteering at America’s Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit and Lions football fans (especially this year!) glued to the television, it’s not always easy to have an ETD (…
