Everyone in my family has their own favorite side dish, and my mom and I try to see that everyone gets what they want. Sure, it's quite a bit of work, but it's only once a year, and everyone is appreciative. My dad has to have sweet potatoes with pecan topping, my daughter wants noodles with chicken cream sauce, my husband must have deviled eggs and pecan pie, I always ask for homemade macaroni salad, my mom wants jello cream cheese salad, one brother wants broccoli and cheese casserole, and the other brother must have baked beans. Of course, we also have turkey breast, cornbread dressing, gravy, cranberries, mashed potatoes, yeast rolls, and pumpkin pie with real whipped cream as well. We'll have about fourteen people at the house if everyone can make it here. We eat leftovers for days! I love Thanksgiving--my favorite holiday--food, family, and no gift exchanges!

I am starving and I can't wait!!

I forgot the collard greens or kale! Have to remember that.
Either one is good for us, just depends on what looks the best at the store.
