What's on your menu for Thanksgiving?

Besides turkey, of course.

It's only going to be us this year so I'm not going too crazy just the usual stuffing, mashed potatoes, marshmallow topped sweet potatoes, candy-glazed carrots, cranberry sauce, bisquits and gravy.

What ever the MIL makes. I'm sure it'll be turkey, mashed potatoes, a few salads, olives, feta, pita, and apple, pumkin pie and cheese cake and ice cream and cookies.

I've never made my own ravioli but would love to try. Being from NY I miss the good stuff that I used to be able to buy on almost every corner.
I do make my own manicotti shells. (so much better when homemade) If we were having company I would probably add them to the menu.

All of your menu's sound wonderful!

Well, we finally talked about Thanksgiving last night. There's just going to be 6 or 7 of us this year. I guess I need to start thinking about what to have. So far I've planned on, turkey, dressing, gravy, some sort of sweet potatoes, green bean cass., pineapple cass., mac & cheese, giblet gravy, rolls, & probably pumpkin crunch cake for dessert.
