Today is busyish for me. I'm making 2 pumpkin pies, snickerdoodles, a pumpkin dip to serve with apple slices, orange-cranberry sauce, and candied sweet potatoes. I also have to brine a turkey at some point.

Tomorrow will be the turkey itself, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, stuffed artichokes, and giblet gravy.

I'm looking forward to all of it!

Whipped Sweet Potatoes and Bananas with Honey. Both the potatoes and bananas are roasted first. It sounded really interesting to me.

A Pecan, Cherry, and Apple Pie have been baked. A huge 12 in. pone of Cornbread (for dressing) just came out of the oven. Sweet potatoes are baking (for casserle) Two chickens simmering on the stove to make stock for dressing. DW is dipping home made Millionaires in chocolate. Turkey breast is brining, and I'll start the cooker after lunch do start the ham cooking to add just a little more smoke flavor. I'll cook the turkey breast late this afternoon/tonight.

Have Fun & Enjoy!

I'm going to a bring-a-dish Thanksgiving at the home of my best friend's new boyfriend. They're doing the turkey with stuffing and a spiral ham; my mom is doing a broccoli/cauliflower/cheese sauce casserole and will make the gravy when we get there. Another friend is bringing 1 pumpkin and 1 chocolate cream pie and whipped cream and friends from out of town are bringing rolls. I'm doing cranberry sauce (made it Sunday), corn pudding and mashed potatoes (tomorrow morning), and, being made tonight, a pumpkin pie and stock from turkey wings for the gravy.

DH has a half day today, so I just sent him the shopping list

We've been doing this meal a little at a time since Sunday, when we made the dressing. Mon we made a broccoli casserole with blue cheese, and last night we made the mashed potatoes. Today we'll cook the turkey, let it cool, then slice it up and put it in a pan to be reheated tomorrow. I'll also make the gravy this evening.
Tomorrow, I have an appetizer to make (olive/cheese balls) and and green beans to fix. I was going to make the ubiquitous green bean casserole (because I love it), but the only green beans I have are the broad Italian type, so I'll just go the bacon/onion route.
My daughter's bringing the pies, bless her heart, and Pillsbury's bringing the dinner rolls.

Today I will prepare:

2 pumpkin pies
1 pecan pie
(Slice of Sin was made on Monday)
broccoli casserole
dressing (plain and oyster)
mashed potatoes
chop sweet potatoes for sweet potato hash (no one wants sweet potato casserole
cranberry sauce (I'm taking Andy M's lead and cooking them in orange juice versus water and then I may add some apple and walnuts to a portion of it)
wild rice salad
prep Brussels sprouts but will cook those tomorrow
brine turkey

Normally I do this all on Thanksgiving with the help of my best friend. She went and "got a boyfriend" and has to be at his house for awhile tomorrow so we're doing a bunch today instead.
