    I'm kind of in the same situation.

    My MIL said now that I'm her daugther I should bring a dish for Thanksgiving and it could be something I'm good at or something they aren't having that my family would normally have. The problem is they are fixing everything my family normally has. lol.

    I'm thinking of baking something since I can do that the day before here since we have to travel 5 hours the night before Thanksgiving to be there. So you could always bake a pumpkin pie, cherry cobbler, pumpkin cookies, etc.

    I always take deviled eggs when we go somewhere for Thanksgiving. There can never be too many deviled eggs.

    I say you make the seafood dish anyway. If no one eats it, theres more for you

    That's just me though. I'm a troublemaker

    You know, I moved a ton growing up and in a lot of areas a seafood casserole will be fine. I would just tell her "Well, I am going to bring a casserole. I will decide when it gets closer to Thanksgiving." and make that casserole anyway.
