Ok, it's a finalized menu.
Before we get started, we will give thanks for what we have as a family.
1. Smoked Turkey from the Webber
2. Sage flavored bread dressing, maybe made in a bundt pan
3. Slow cooker smashed spuds with salt, butter and cream
4. Mashed rutabaga with butter, brown sugar, and black pepper
5. Turkey Gravy
6. Ripe, black olives
7. Lime Jellow with cottage cheese and pineapple (I like adding chopped walnuts too)
8. Frehsly steamed green beens with butter
9. Pumpkin Pie
10. Deviled Eggs

Let the food settle and play with the munchkins.

Day 2:
1. Turkey and dressing sandwiches on fresh, sourdough bread (for lunch)
2. Turkey and mayo sandwiches (for those who don't like dressing)
3. Leftovers
4. Start the dirty-sock soup with the turkey carcass (turkey carcass, pearl barley, rice, onion, sage, pepper, salt, celery, fake dirty socks (made from cheesecloth and stained with soy sauce)
Pumpkin Pie with Chantilly cream

Let the food settle and play with the munchkins

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

I'm thinking turkey, "stuffing", mashed potatoes and gravy, but probably not what you are expecting
I have no time for a traditional dinner on Thanksgiving, so have been hashing around something for the person on the go.

Sounds like a version of Thanksgiving day 2 at my house.

I make a version of this casserole using the remnants of Thanksgiving dinner.

It is a little different every year.

It looks like everyone's plans are shaping up.

I took Dx to an afternoon movie today. To keep her away from more shopping. I think she is first-name friends with every grocery store in town. Thwarted. Her sister stopped over w/ a bag of fruit to put together a fruit salad ( us put it together for her - what's with that !?!)

I guess we are having fruit salad for thanksgiving. That's a good treat.

I made a Thanksgiving leftovers casserole one year... the one year I cooked a turkey dinner. I can't remember what it was called right now, but it was pretty good.

I like to put a T'giving leftovers casserole in the freezer. It's a wonderful surprise to pull out and cook when I don't want to mess with the whole bird and trimmings.

Welcome to DC, ModernCat

That's a pretty ambitious menu - I'm guessing you're not new to cooking My friend told me this afternoon she's serving a cranberry sauce over baked brie. Just thought I'd mention it in case it sounds interesting to you.

My darling cousin, who is probably one of the world's worst cooks, has lots of holes in her potluck menu. The offerings sound hideous so far. Last year we took DH's brother with us to Cousin's, and on the drive back to BIL's we all chuckled, as the food was the worst we'd ever tasted anywhere. DH and I are driving up with dressing, my way, and I may even make gravy. We're about 4 hours away, but luckily I have a huge selection of crock pots and it's really cold out.

Thankfully, we love the company, if not the food!

Thank you GotGarlic
I am hoping to learn hints and tricks. I have been reading different recipes for weeks to find simple yet delicious recipes. I think the stuffing is going to be most difficult. Timing is my worst enemy. I am horrible at that and wasting. So with all the different FRESH herbs needed I went out and bought $3.00 herb plants instead of buying herbs from the grocery store. I think I may considering something like a cranberry sauce on the side. That sounds delicious, cheese and cranberries. thank you! oh and I am not a good cook I am just not afraid to try anything :). I "need" to follow recipes, I can't make anything on my own without a recipe.
