I'm traditional when it comes to Thanksgiving Dinner so I don't really change up the menu too much ... I also go to relatives for potluck every year (yes, I still cook my own dinner), not sure what is on that menu, but I'm sure a turkey is involved... this year a request was made for my spaghetti salad (as an appetizer), sweet potato pie and apple crisp so that's what I'll be taking...

 

Here's my tentative menu for home, some things I'm still questioning if I'll feel like doing:

 

Roasted Turkey

Dressing

Baked macaroni and cheese

Sweet Potato casserole - two different kinds

Collard Greens

Potato Salad?? (may take this off the menu this year depending on how I feel)

Rice

Cranberry sauce - homemade and the canned kind

Hot water cornbread??

Jiffy cornbread

Hawaiian sweet rolls

Sweet potato pies - 5 total

Apple crisps - 3 total

Coconut Pound Cake??

Ice Cream

My mama still cooks the big dinner, same every year, but that's getting harder so me and my sister are trying to help. But of course when we offer or ask what to do... she says she's got it. But I always make cranberry sauce, and sister is making a cobbler and another veggie food dish. And I'll do something else too, probably squash and a dessert as well.

Turkey
Dressing
Dressing with veggie stock
Noodles (cooked in turkey broth)
Noodles (cooked in veggie broth)
Mashed potatoes
Sweet potato casserole
Corn
Green beans
Mac and cheese
Squash
Another veggie
Rolls
Homemade cranberry sauce
Pickles, olives, black olives, cheese
Peach cobbler
Pumpkin pie
Cookies

Ham, fried potatoes, Mac & cheese, chocolate pie and spice cake for us. We aren’t big turkey & dressing eaters so ham it is.

Well, I won't say anything negative about the Bills as we've been playing good the past couple years... but from previous years, you know how we played  :sidesplit
