    Default Your Thanksgiving menu plan

    For those that are entertaining and doing most of the cooking, what's your spread going to look like?

    Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn bread stuffing, creamed corn casserole, green bean casserole, cole slaw, cranberry sauce, yeast rolls, pumpkin pie - and TUMS!

    I actually like the leftovers better than the main event. A turkey sandwich on white bread with a little Miracle whip - my idea of Good Eats!

    Love it, tums.

    Agree the leftovers are the best. That is the great part about making it all yourself.

    Creamed corn casserole is a can of creamed corn, a 1# bag of whole kernel corn (cooked), a handful of crushed saltine crackers, some cream a tablespoon of sugar, salt and pepper - baked in the oven until it's bubbly around the edges and maybe browned a bit on top.

    You are hereby virtually invited to our family's Thanksgiving celebration. It is held the fourth Thursday of November, and we generally eat around 2pm Eastern time. How many places should we set for your family?Our family's tradition is to place three kernels of popcorn (unpopped) on each person's plate. Before we eat, we pass a small bowl around the table and as the bowl comes to your hand, you place one of the kernels of corn into it and state something you are thankful for. After the bowl has made the rounds three times, we pray and THEN we eat!

    I wouldn't really call it entertaining in our house as I will be feeding the regular crowd, hubby, ds, and dd.

    we will have turkey, mashed potatoes, string bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, macaroni and cheese, stuffing, collards, cabbage, rolls, pumpkin pie, and a chocolate chip pie for the kids. and I will probably have some left over fried chicken in the fridge for ds since he doesn't really like turkey.

    everything will be homemade except for that nasty stuffing dh loves

    We don't celebrate Thanksgiving with anyone other than our little family unit and our neighbor. We travel enough over Christmas, I refuse to do it over THanksgiving too.

    None of us are big turkey fans, so we are cooking a big ham. We'll have mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, pasta salad, either a creamed corned or a green bean casserole, some fancy dessert, some appetizers and a few dishes of Wesley's choosing.

    Wesley helps me prepare the meal as well.

    I remember having a corn custard which was pretty good.

    Fortunately I just need to bring a side dish. But will probably have a small dinner which will be basic probably, turkey breast, filling, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, corn.

    Whatever is leftover will be packaged up and put in the freezer. The leftovers are definately the best.
