Normally I would live on little dishes, appetizers, tapas, mezze dishes.

But on Thanksgiving, we do the whole routine.

Dut to work considerations, this year we are cutting back a bit and bought a precooked smoked turkey. But everything else is from scratch, just put the cornbread dressing in the oven.

Going to take a brief nap, and then there is one more side and the gravy to finish and we are ready to eat.

Any other day of the year I am fine with experimenting with other things, but Thanksgiving is always turkey, bread dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry salad, fruit salad, Waldorf salad, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, baby peas, rolls, black olives, green olives, and pumpkin pie with whipped cream. The only deviation from this (since the day my mom accidentally left them in the microwave and no one noticed until they were found the next day!) is that we sometimes don't have the peas. Any other variation of this meal would result in some horrible rip in the fabric of time and space, and I would hate to be responsible for that!

i voted for traditional fare (not faire).

gotta have turkey, stuffing/dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, mashed taters, string beans, mashed turnips, and pearl onions in cream sauce.

if one of these is missing, it's not the same. sorta like an equation.

Put me in the traditional catagory. I'm w/ Barbara L, it could be disastrous to change the menu. One neat thing we've added to our tradition, I always made the stuffing and it's a family favorite but I never wrote it down and the girls were always fussing, "what if something happened to you..?". So last year my 8 yr old gdtr came over on Wednesday and helped me make it while writing down the recipe. This year she did most of the work with my assistance. I love it!
