Alix--Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without wild rice (says she who just brought 10 lb back from MN).. You could do a wild rice salad, or wild rice "cakes" (like crab cakes), or wild rice stuffing, or wild rice pilaf as a side. I think the recipe I use is in the rice folder. I stuff my bird with wild rice stuffing--wild rice, barley, brown rice, celery, apples, mushrooms (morels are really nice to use, but if you don't have those, porcini work well), roasted pecans, dried cranberries, dried bread, seasonings, butter, some chicken broth. Sorry, I don't have a recipe, I learned to make the stuffing at my granny's knee and so it is by taste and feel. Yum-yum.
Glazed onions are also nice. And don't forget the cranberry salsa! I'm going to CT over Thanksgiving--so s/one else is cooking <g>.
