Look here for the broccoli wild rice casserole. I think the addition of toasted pine nuts would be wonderful! Especially on top maybe with some extra cheese?

Did someone say cheese?! Count me in. This sounds/looks tasty... & real comfort food. Thanks Alix. Copied and saved. If you really don't like pumpkin, I'd skip it -- unless your having a bunch of folks that love PP. It's sort of traditional here - but I could take it or leave it. I do like it though - once a year. I would make one pie you like and pumpkin or a traditional (pecan whatever) for the guests. Happy Thanksgiving.

" chocolate bourbon bread pudding "

Well now, I could kill two birds with one stone if I made that!!!! I'll post the corn pudding tomorrow. It's really good. Makes me feel like a southerner. LOL The brocolli wild rice looks great, but I think I'll have enough food. So far, there's only 3 of us.

I LOVE pumpkin pie!!

We too make the big dinner on the Monday (the day after we get up there usually) so that it's leftovers for thanksgiving and there's not a ton to take home.

Hey Lorraine, look here for a ton of Chocolate bread pudding recipes. None of these is EXACTLY like the one I made, but kitchenelf's is pretty close I think. I know that I omitted raisins and instead added brandy to the "wet" stuff. I'm still looking for my exact recipe.

Here's the Corn Pudding. If you have fresh corn, grilling it adds a nice smokey flavour. You can add things such as cooked bacon etc, but I like it plain. It has a souffle like texture.

Makes about 6 servings
3 T butter
2 cups corn kernals (thawed and drained if using frozen)
Pinch each nutmeg and white pepper
4 eggs
1/4 c ap flour
1/2 t baking powder
1 T sugar
1 t salt
1 1/2 c heavy cream
Preheat oven to 325F. Melt the butter in a large saucepan and saute the corn kernals over medium heat, about 10 minutes. Do not brown. Add the nutmeg and pepper and set aside.
Beat the eggs until light and foamy. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt and then sift into the eggs. Beat until smooth. Add the reserved corn and the cream, blend well. Pour into a greased 1 1/2 quart casserole and bake in a water bath for about 1 hour 15 minutes, until a knife inserted comes out clean.
