What are your thanksgiving meals?

Hello. This year I'm gonna try thanksgiving cooking for the first time. In my country there is no such a holiday and it is very new to me. I often watch food channels and kinda know what it is like, but what are the common thanksgiving meals besides turkey? What do you guys cook or eat?

I'm thinking about turkey, green beans, and mashed potatoes, but I also want to try something else.


Thank you.

Ok... I'll lie.....
I am going to have turkey day with my family! I cant wait!!! They can tell me all their new meds and what they do. I LOVE that. And then they can tell me what I should do with MY life. ANd how I didnt do something right. For extra SPECIAL fun they can tell him how the man I voted for President is the anti-christ...... hitler..... and terrorist himself.
I shall then proceed to argue with logic.... which they have none of. I will THEN give up. And while they are ALL getting drunk, I will sneak out, and praise GOd its all over.

Sushi, If it's that terrible, why put yourself in that scenario? Life has already been tough this year for you. You don't need any more cr** in your life. Do something that will make YOU happy.

Ahhhhh..... its family. Even though I HAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE going, they HAVE helped me in the past financially when I didnt have a job. Not MUCH, but enough. And Im grateful. SO I figure a couple of hours with them, and 2 hours of driving (both ways) isnt all THAT bad. *sigh*

Thank you.
I like to smoke my turkey. I also like Pecan pie, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, Miller Lite, and a big nap on the sofa.

Hi DooDooDucky...........ok first of all please explain your username

Secondly...........I can tell you what my mom always fixed. She passed last January and this will be my first Thanksgiving without her and I'm in charge of the meal. I'm going to make the things she did..........although not exactly like she did because now one cooked like mom.......she was the best. But anyway here is what for sure we'll be having:

Roast Turkey and Turkey Gravy
Mashed Potatoes
Green Beans..........cooked with bacon, onions, and S & P
Chicken Noodles
Sweet Potatoes with Marshmellow Topping
Relish Dish
Cranberry Sauce
Pumpkin Pie
Chocolate Pies..........at least 2 because one kid can eat 1/2 in one sitting
Scalloped Corn
Dressing
Rolls


I'm going to add some other things also but still haven't yet pinpointed what for sure.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and the best of luck in all you prepare. Just remember that its not really about the food but instead sharing the meal with loved ones.
