What's on your Thanksgiving menu?
Before dinner I am setting out a veggie platter and nuts
Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, the veggie platter, salad, cranberry sauce, lemon glazed sweet potatoes, rolls.
Pumkin pie, peanut butter pie.
Well, I'm not doing a Thanksgiving dinner; we go to my mom's and she cooks it all! However, I am hosting a Thanksgiving breakfast for the in-laws. I'm serving..........
3 different breakfast casserolesbacon & sausage
pumpkin choc. chip mini-muffins
fresh fruit--apple slices, bananas, maybe grapes
juice, milk, coffee
This works out well for us and we're not rushing around between the 2 families. They all come here to eat at 9am and are mostly gone by noon. We don't eat at my mom's until about 4pm so we have a few hours to relax and get hungry again! :-)

Waffling here, waffling here...still not entirely sure! Not really focused on it at all at this point!
We are hosting it here with my father, and mil. What I think I want to do is instead of a turkey, make cornish hens. My mil doesn't eat turkey, so I would have to make yet another thing for her anyway
I am trying a new recipe with apples and sweet potatoes and pecans(I already have some).
I'm going all out.
I love cooking for the holidays; I do all the traditional stuff from scratch.

Came back to say that the decision has been made, lol.
Cornish hens it is! I have to find a good glaze recipe now. Along with the hens, there will be potatoes (still undecided on roasted or mashed), corn, roasted brussel sprouts, homemade cranberry sauce, and whole artichokes w/butter to start. I want to make some cornbread too.
I'll also put out a crudite tray with raw veggies, black olives and pickles for snacking.
