My parents have chosen to make the turkey this year, also the mashed potatoes and gravy, rolls, pumpkin pie.

I'll bring the green bean casserole.

My boyfriend will make the oyster stuffing.

You're right, no fun.( unless you're having a Wild Turkey or 2 with it!)
Your in Florida, so you must have a publix by you. See if they have individual dinners, Sooo much better than TV.
Or get one from a local diner. (If you can find a diner in your area.) It may taste the same, but you'll get someone who calls you, "Hun" and alot more food too.

Default What is your Thanksgiving Menu?

mod: There is a thread about Thanksgiving plans but I don't see one for menu

Please list your menu and how many people you will be serving and your state

N.C. 4 (2 adults and 2 eleven yo girls)

Ham - I swore off Turkey last year

Wilted spinach salad with mandarin oranges, red onion and warm bacon dressing

Cheese Grits Casserole- no special family celebration would be complete without it

Cornbread dressing- no rolls planned

My version of green bean casserole

sweet potatoes with pecan topping

Pumpkin pie and fresh fruit

I'm making enough to have left overs for a nice long weekend

Looking forward to see what others will be serving

Louisiana - 10 adults and 6 kids

Smoked turkey
Country ham
Cornbread dressing (made in a pan, not stuffed in the bird)
Giblet gravy
Green bean casserole
Fruit salad with lots of fresh clementines and honey crisp apples and grapes, pecans, celery tossed with a bit of mayo
Shoepeg corn dish (family favorite - corn with cream cheese, chilis and pimentos)
Sweet potato casserole with marshmallows on top - lots of brown sugar and butter!
Yeast rolls
Fresh cranberry sauce
Pecan pie
Buttermilk pie
Pumpkin pie
Chocolate cookies or brownies or fudge (someone always brings something chocolate)
(Everything except the rolls made from scratch -oh and we buy a Greenburg smoked turkey if someone hasn't given us one already)

Sweet tea
White wine
Coffee with real cream for dessert
NO WHIPPED TOPPINGS ALLOWED - ONLY FRESH WHIPPED HEAVY CREAM!

Funny thing is, we turn around and have almost the identical dinner a month later, but we add Red Velvet cake! I usually make up a huge amount of the cornbread dressing (family recipe over 100 years old, put it up in the Recipe section) and freeze a big pan for Christmas dinner. It takes all day to make it but it is WORTH IT!

I can't wait!

(I know this sounds like a lot but one of our goals is for everyone to be able to take quite a bit home and have the next day's meal ready - sometimes we can eat off this load for three days! LOL and TG leftovers are DA BOMB!)

LOL our family is very multicultural and we've lived and traveled all over the world. We are always saying, after every TG, that we will do a "different" and more "ethnic" meal next year - for instance, we have several Korean family members, several Hispanic, some from the northeastern US, some from the midwest, some African American, etc and we always always say we're going to do a whole different format.

Then we get right down to it and even the "ethnic" and non Southern family members start saying, "You mean we're not going to have the country ham?" and "You mean you're not going to make that dressing?" and "But someone has to bring green bean casserole," and the big uproar - "DON'T MESS WITH THE DESSERT MENU!"

So we always just say, "Never mind - we're going with the same ol same ol!" And everyone cheers!

Just the wife and I this year. Most likely to be a really good steak, I'll know more when I get to the supermarket. I do have a butternut squash which will be used though.

We will be a group of 12 adults and 3 kids, 2 are toddlers. Our granddaughter and hubby are hosting this year, they are the ones with the biggest house. Usually we do it at our daughters, but since Sarah's house is so big, plenty of room to watch football, visit, eat and room for the kids to run around, she is going to tackle the event. Now for the menu (I think everyone thinks we are feeding an army)

appetizers: cocktail meat balls: Rueban cheese ball: herb flovored nuts: pepper dip and crackers;
5 cheese, cheese ball: fruit kabobs

2 Turkeys; one smoked, one deep fried
Spiral Ham
mac and cheese
mashed potatoes and gravy
dressing
asparagus or some veggie
Cranberry relish
green salad
several kinds of bread
Apple pie
Pumpkin pie
pecan pie

Beer, wine and whatever.
