Well, hello! I will ask my cousin why she didn't think of that.

I think i just might add that to the menu.

Thanks.

Is anyone on this thread from Southern California? I could do dishes!

I'm cooking for the first time ever, so my menu is basic:

Turkey
Gravy
Mashed Potatoes or candied yams
Green Beans
Corn
Dinner Rolls
Apple Pie and ice cream for dessert

There's only three of us, though, so this should be more than enough food!

cornbread dressing/gravy
candied yams
broc. cassarole
sweet corn
devil eggs
