Its coming up during the weekend here (Canada) and I am a bit behind in planning.
The usual like Turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes will any way make its way. And yes, pumpkin pie. But i am wondering if anyone is doing anything interesting for the sides....help a girl out with your ideas please!

Napa Cabbage, Pomegranate & Apple Slaw with Walnut-Mustard Dressing « Roche Bros. Supermarkets

I like to make this salad. Actually, if you search around the net, you’ll find variations on this. I layer the ingredients on a platter, but you could easily layer them in a glass bowl. It is a very fresh tasting side alongside a meal that has so much starch.

I always wondered what a Canadian Thanksgiving was like food wise. I hope you have a happy one.

Cooking Thanksgiving dinner is a lot of work. May you be blessed in the making and the feasting.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. The cooking is a lot of work unless everyone brings something. For us, we do a pot luck pretty much so it cuts down some on the pressures put of the host and hostess. For us, the salad is either cranberry or sometimes even a green salad. We are green salad eaters in our family. though there are always a couple of kinds of pie, by the end of the meal not everyone is hungry for any or not for much.

that sounds like a winner salad, a good mixture of fall and a green as well. I think I would use bok choy.

Make a non-pumpkin pie dessert (or ask someone to bring one). There are those of us who cannot stand pumpkin pie. My grandmother was one of them, so we always had other pies, panna cotta, or lemon mousse. My own favorite Thanksgiving dessert is creme caramel. I use the recipe on p. 407 of The Martha Stewart Cookbook (1995). It's this recipe, but I always made it in a single 9" cake pan (or was it 8"?).

Thank you so much. the cabbage slaw looks and sounds really delicious! I will try it.
I like the concept of having friends and family over and make an elaborate meal. Like taking a break from busy schedule and dedicate it to just having fun.

Thank you so much, I dont have family here. So it will just be me, hubby and my 3 and 6 year olds.
Honestly though, I was not raised in North America and 12 years ago when I first moved here, I did not even know what Thanksgiving was. Slowly I learned when my friends invited me over. This is one of the things i picked up; local traditions and customs. I find that it enriches my small world so much.

I love Napa cabbage, not a huge fan of bok choy. Crunchier too.

I have made another pomegranate salad for many Thanksgivings — baby spinach and/or butter lettuce, avocado, pomegranate, shaved red onion, crumbled Gorgonzola or bleu cheese, toasted walnuts, homemade vinaigrette dressing. It’s very festive.
