Ours is the traditional turkey dinner - which by the way is my favorite meal to cook and the eat.

Turkey, dressing, potatoes, gravy, cranberry, roasted brussel sprouts, honeyed carrots, rumaki, rolls, cranberry cream torte and crustless pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream .. yum !!

The "bulk" of my groceries will be delivered tomorrow, & I'll go from there. Still trying to recover from foot surgery, & don't want to "push" it. I'm thankful I haven't lost my leg - yet. This year has been a real struggle healthwise. Thankful for my home (especially after seeing the devastation to folks on the East coast after Sandy. Makes one put things in prospective). Thinking about goung to a buffet (how bad can they mess up a bird! lol - and they prob have ham & roast beef). Over the weekend I may make a small dinner, at my leisure.

So far...

Shrimp or crab & avocado cocktails
Apple, spinach, red onion, walnut salad
turkey
Oyster dressing
cranberry sauce
sweet potatoes (w bourbon) in orange cups
Potatoes au gratin
brussels sprouts braised in cream w/ chestnuts
dinner rolls
Pumpkin pie

I feel like I'm forgetting something. lol

We are going to my BIL's. There will be approx 16-18 for dinner. I haven't heard if Jr is coming or if he's going to his GF's. Turkey dinner using mom's/family favorite recipes. I am bringing a quinoa / broccoli / cheese casserole with a garlicky dijon bechamel sauce base. I haven't made this before. Yikes. It looks close to a rice/ broccoli casserole I make, so it ought to be good.

It's about time for me to flip over & do the other side, Whisky. (Hope you don't mind me calling you Whisky.) Not a big gravy fan, but whatever floats their gravy boats. lol

Love the avatar, Cerise! Hope your foot is healing well, didn't know you had surgery. Take care.

We're going to a cousin's, she was insulted when I asked if I could bring anything, Acted like I thought she couldn't cook. Though her mom (my aunt) was famous for her inability to cook. Should be interesting.
