So far this is what's going on my table for Thanksgiving. The menu has beed divided up between myself, 2 sister-in-laws, & mother-in-law. But I am cooking most of it. The main reason I say "so far" is because with my husbands family, I never know what they are going to bring other than what I have asked them to bring. :roll:

Appetizers

Mushroom Turnovers
Dill Pickle Sandwiches


Entrees

Smoked Turkey
Ham
Green Bean Casserole
Pineapple Casserole
Mac & Cheese
Sweet Potatoes
Corn
Dressing
Giblet Gravy
Mashed Potatoes
Deviled Eggs
Cranberry Sauce(homemade & canned)
Yeast Rolls


Desserts

Pumpkin Crunch Cake
Brownies


Beverages

Tea
Coffee
Soft Drinks

I have yet to make a turkey. It was and always has been done by my Grandma. I can tell ya what she has usually.

appetizers: nothing fancy and it's different every year. Most of the time, something like a snack mix, hollowed out round loaf of bread (pumpernickel) with a dip in the middle and served with vegies and cubes of bread, relish tray, ham roll-ups, shrimp and cocktail sauce (the nice juicy jumbo shrimp)

of course the turkey
sage walnut stuffing
gravy
mashed taters
green bean casserole
cranberry sauce
cheesy potatoes
fresh baked onion rolls
swedish brown bread (I THINK it's called limpa)
pickled herring (for my uncle)
buttered peas
candied sweet potatoes
tossed salad with assorted vegies


pumpkin pie
brownies
apple pie
rice crispy treats
coffee
tea

I always get carried away. I know it's too much food for 7 people but...

Breakfast--baked french toast with triple berry compote

Snacks--assorted cheese and crackers (come over Juliev and Sierra!), cranberry cheese spread, beefstick, veggies and dip, chocolate cherry chunk cookies, peanut brittle

Dinner--turkey, mashed potatoes, brown sugar roasted sweet potato wedges, peas, broccoli with balsamic brown butter, stuffing, gravy, homemade ginger-orange cranberry sauce, apple sauce (MIL makes w/ apples from her yard!), clover leaf rolls.

Dessert--Chocolate meringue pie, apple pie w/ vanilla icecream, cheese cake with a maple cranberry sauce.

Breakfast the next AM--ginger scones and pumpkin muffins

Thank you so much for sharing your ideas!! You make a lot of varieties. They sound yummy and just reading them made me hungry... :oops: You guys must be a wonderful cook!

MJ, roasted garlic mashed potatoes sound so good!! My mashed potatoes are flavored only with butter and seasoning. It is good but too simple. I was scared to try something different but I would love to try your recipe!!

SizzlininIN, I didn't know what doo doo means :oops: I like duckies and tried to make it sound cute but I guess I made it sound nasty

buckytom, what is pearl onions in cream sauce? Is it easy? It sounds good to me.

I don't usually eat pies but chocolate pies sound so good! I think I'm gonna make it. I'm so glad you give me ideas. I will have fun cooking next week!!

Thanks again!!
