I love Thanksgiving -- my favvorite Holiday. Am 80 yrs. old and will have dinner for my four children, spouses and seven grandchildren. I stock my pantry with almost everything on your list, but I really need 4 to 6 cans of Everyday Value whole berry cranberry sauce, a real time saver that tastes every bit as good as homemade cranberry sauce.

It's got to be canned beans - they go in everything from salads to breads, they're a great source of fiber and non-meat protein, and SOOOOO versatile!

I simply cannot do without Frontier Organic Cinnamon, Organic Cloves, Organic Nutmeg and Organic Ginger. Why? You just can't make a pumpkin pie without them!

Love all nuts -- almonds, walnuts, pine nuts, pecans -- they add something nice to everything on the Thanksgiving table.

That was simple. The slivered almonds and chopped pecans jumped out at me. I love adding slivered almonds to stir fried fresh green beans or roasted brussel sprouts. The pecans top a sweet potato casserole kept simple with fresh sweet potato and a canned pear blend with only a touch of butter and brown sugar. Cuts out a multitude of fat and tastes even better, sweet and fresh. Love holiday baking so the nuts go into pecan tarts, almond crescents, butterballs and Santa's Whiskers. Love to bake. Happy to celebrate. Thankful for friends, our health and family. Happy Thanksgiving!

The staple that I can't do without is chicken stock--we use it in so many holiday dishes like my homemade stuffing.

During the holidays I absolutely can not do without cinnamon. I use it in pumpkin pie, sweet potatoes, warm cider, biscochitos (traditional New Mexican cookie), pumpkin rolls. I would be in real trouble without this spice in my pantry! Happy Holidays!!

I must have pumpkin and butternut squash purees, both of which I use in my Thanksgiving soup and pies, not to mention at other times during the fall/winter season. And vanilla. Always need vanilla this time of year.
