Probably the usual for the small remnants of my family who still manage to get together in November: Turkey, stuffing, chicken, ham, mashed potatoes with brown gravy, candied yams, pineapples with cottage cheese and cherries, rice pudding, broccoli, cauliflower, cranberry sauce, probably some pie for dessert such as pumpkin pie and blueberry pie, and red wine, iced tea, and diet cola to drink.

Baked ham, macaroni and cheese, zipper peas, creamed corn, corn bread, mashed potatoes and ham gravy, green beans, and I would really love to try a recipe I saw on the Bonnie Hunt show. Courtney Cox was on there and said she makes the green bean casserole with the cream of mushroom soup and the durkee fried onions, BUT instead of green beans, she substitutes Lesueur baby sweet peas. I don't like that recipe using green beans , but I am wondering about it with the sweet peas.

It is just the two of us this year, so I am really bummed about not making a turkey and some dressing. I may get a large hen and make some dressing anyhow! LOL Boy will we have a pile of leftovers!!!!

OOPs - also we will have pecan pie and at least something CHOCOLATE!
