just made out my menu/grocery list:

turkey breast, ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, cranberries (yes, the jellied type), deviled eggs, corn casserole, green bean casserole, mandarin jello salad, sweet potatoes...pretty much the standard!! But I love fixing this special meal.

Ours will be fairly traditional, 'cept there'll be THREE fried turkeys (gotta make it worth all that oil!), prolly a ham, a tofurkey (for me), a raw veggie tray, LOTS of olives for little fingers, all the regulars (stuffing, mashed tatoes, green beans casserole, cranberry sauce, pecan pie, pumpkin pie), and MY tradition - creme brle. Oh, and lots of wine, champagne, and "kids wine" (sparkling cider). We have much to be thankful for, ESP healthy twin grandbabies who will be just a bit over 2 weeks old!

Congrats on the new grandbabies jules07!

We will have the standard meal- turkey, mashed pot., stuffing, corn, green bean casserole, rolls, mac and cheese, cranberry sauce, and collards. desserts- pass me the sweet potato pie, pumpkin and apple pies too. We do a big lunch veggie tray with some cheeses and pickles. I munch on the veggies while cooking and watching the dog show.

I guess people outside of New England don't eat turnip and squash for Thanksgiving.

Turkey
Mashed potatoes
Corn bread and sausage stuffing from scratch (new recipe kindly shared from a CD member)
Gravy
Green bean casserole
Apple and cranberry jello salad
Cranberry jelly, the canned stuff
Rolls
Pumpkin and apple pies

I'd make more food but we're going to be a small crowd. Also, I only have one oven, and making a lot of food is always a trick! I am making the mashed potatoes tomorrow and warming them in my big crockpot on T-Day. I'll also make the cornbread ahead and prep the rest of the stuffing, so when the turkey comes out of the oven to rest and be carved, the stuffing and green beans will go in to bake. The pies will go in when we sit down to eat.

I also call it "stuffing" despite never stuffing the bird. (Don't like it that way.) I think that's technically "dressing," but the habit is ingrained in me.

It's not Thanksgiving dinner for me without rutabagas Cubed, boiled and lightly mashed served with just butter and s&p. And I'm going to have baked acorn squash this year (second generation Washington DC native here)
