Desserts vary from year to year but I like to do a cheesecake topped with a fruit sauce. My favorite is blueberry.
I'm with you on the standing rib roast (but served au jus; the bernaise is perfect with the beef tenderloin!)
I love mashed sweet potatoes (aka Yams, although true Yams aren't available in the U.S.) or a combination of mashed sweet potatoes and mashed white potatoes - the "floury" ones, not the waxy ones, if that helps anyone. And I like them savoury, not trying to taste like a pumpkin or sweet potato pie.
By the time Thanksgiving leftovers are used up I'm completely sick of turkey. I don't even like turkey to begin with
and usually go with a couple of small stuffed game hens.
