Traditionally?

turkey, dressing
mashed potatoes/gravy
baked sweet potatoes
green bean casserole
homemade rolls
pumpkin, apple, gooseberry pie

This year? Dad died just before Thanksgiving 2 years ago, mom died this past March. . . I've disowned my brother and sister...

So MIL, hubby, and how ever many of my kids/spouses/grandkids can come:

roast sticky chicken
party potatoes
garlic green beans
homemade rolls
pumpkin pie

I haven't made a whole spread in years for Thanksgiving. We always go to the MIL house with all the family. It's usually...

Turkey
dumplings
pea/cauliflower tossed salad
huge bowl of fruit
mashed tators and gravy
stuffing
green bean casserole
broccoli/cheese casserole
sweet potatoes
rolls
some type of cranberry dish

Desert is always apple, chocolate, and pumpkin pie and several small treats. My husbands uncle is a diabetic and they make the chocolate pie with Splenda. It's really good!

Pretty basic here.

turkey
mashed potatoes
gravy
vegetable of choice..sometimes beans, sometimes corn or broccoli...whatever we feel like.
baked rolls
sweet potatoes
candied carrots
butternut squash
stuffing
cranberry sauce

We usually have appetizers of some sort like assorted cheese, summer sausage, deli meats, crackers, veggie plate and dip, fruit plate, deviled eggs, assorted nuts, etc.

Dessert is usually apple pie and vanilla ice cream. Sometimes another type of pie or cheesecake. Sometimes I make some sort of fluff dessert. Just depends.

I'd like to make cornbread of some sort, but it's really too much food as it is.

It's almost always just us 6.
