Re: Thanksgiving menu
Baked Brie as an appetizer

Maple-Glazed Turkey
I'm creating a sausage stuffing of my own.
Mashed Potatoes
Southern Style Sweet Potato Casserole
Canned Cranberry Sauce
Brown N' Serve Rolls

Caramel Pecan Pie

I think it's going to be wonderful! There will be more than enough food for the two people that will be eating, though I may add a can of French cut green beans too.

Re: Thanksgiving menu
My family gathers at the family cabin for Thanksgving potluck. Everyone arrives hungry, but so there are always tons of appetizers: cocktail shrimp, nuts, olives, cheese, and crackers.

This year, I get to cook the turkey. I also add my Thai contribution of woodear mushrooms and ginger; it goes great with turkey. There will be a fabulous salad from the vegetarian Aunt. Her salads are to-die-for. They almost make me want to be vegetarian...almost. Ham, green bean caserole, corn, sweet potatoes, rolls, pumpkin pie, apple pie, and ice cream.

Food is served at 3pm, and then we all go for a walk around the lake before it gets too dark.

It's just four of us, so nothing fancy...

Potatoes au gratin
Mashed sweet potatoes
Green beans (raw, since the kids won't eat them cooked)
Dinner rolls (with surprise "I'm thankful for" notes inside)

And some kind of apple pie. Perhaps homemade, if I'm feeling up to it. DH makes homemade whipped cream :)

Pretty boring menu, now that I look at it, but with just us, any more food and I'll run out of room for leftovers!
