We're hosting it (I live at home lol). But, my mom and I do all the cooking together. She's actually more laid back than I am about this stuff so I came up with our menu.


Turkey


Gravy


Cornbread Stuffing


Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes


Candied Yams


Green Beans


Cranberry Sauce


Mac & Cheese


Corn on the cob


Pastichio (we're Greek so you have to throw it at least one Greek dish lol)


Salad


I'm also making a pumpkin banana mousse pie for dessert. My aunts are bringing other desserts. Apps will probably be standard-- cheese/crackers, veggies/dip, spanakopitas, tiropitas, baked brie, mini quiche.

Grandma AND my mom!!!  I get two Thanksgivings.. woohoo! 


I'm helping with some dishes for mom's Thanksgiving.. I'll be making sweet yam casserole and green been casserole.


My Grandma does EVERYTHING though.. she's italian so we always have an antipasta in the afternoon and then the big ole turkey dinner in the evening.  Both she and mom have pretty much the same menu:

Homemade Stuffing


Homemade Cranberry Sauce


Mash Potatoes


Sweet Potato Casserole w/ little marshmellows ontop  (my fav!)


Stuffed Mushrooms


Breaded and fried Cauliflower (YUM!)


Green Bean Casserole


Rolls

ETA:  Forgot dessert!  I'm famous for my iced pumpkin cookies, so I'm making those.  And we're also having pumpkin and apple pie.. mmm!

My sister is hosting Thanksgiving this year but we all split up the cooking. I'm making green bean casserole, glazed carrots, yorkshire pudding (DH's only request), and a chocolate trifle for dessert. Yum! Can't wait!

All of our family is out of town, so it will just be DH and I this Thanksgiving.  He works Thanksgiving Day and will miss out on the big meal, so we are doing a breakfast instead...


So far I am thinking..


French Toast


Sausage and Grit Casserole


Fresh Fruit


I miss having all of the Thanksgiving staples, but I will be the only one eating it and I can't justify making all of that food just for me!

DH and i are cooking for his parents (and possibly his cousin and two nephews), but even though it's a small gathering, we cook a lot because we love the leftovers!!!


we usually cook a big turkey, but DH has been so curious about Turducken, so we decided to order one this year from http://www.cajungrocer.com/. so excited for that!!!


and then we'll cook sides:


garlic rosemary mashed potatoes


gravy


green bean casserole


broccoli and cheddar mac and cheese


and for dessert, pumpkin cheesecake!

-Mashed Potatoes


-Green Bean Casserole


-Sweet Potato Hash


-Deviled Eggs


-Dinner Rolls


-Stuffing


-Carmel Apple Pie
