GRANA  here; I tried , multiple times, to post the menu; but it is always too small to read. CLICK on the menu to enlarge it & then, if necessary, enlarge it even more  by using your own computer's zoom feature.

Here's the menu (and I'm making everything by myself!) - turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, candied yams, green bean casserole, cranberry relish, assorted olives, 2 kinds of dinner rolls, Libby's pumpkin pie, and fudge pecan brownie pie (new recipe). Hopefully we'll be eating between 1 and 1:30, so I'll have appetizers available for those who didn't eat breakfast!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving, Ann, and everyone at VBB!

All home-made:
Turkey, bread stuffing, gravy, mashed golden Youkon potatoes (made with cream cheese and sour cream), cranberry salad,  corn, black olives and a mozarella and grape tomato salad.  My daughter is bringing fresh green bean salad.  Stuffed mushrooms and shrimp coctail for appetizers, and a pecan and a pumpkin pie with fresh whipped cream for dessert.  Just four of us at the table, plus assorted dogs and cats hoping for a handout!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Appetizer table: our energy mix, left over pie dough cinnamon thingy's, candy corn, turkey cookies (Pillsbury holiday design), candied fruit slices, pumpkin bread and peanuts.


The main course: Turkey, stuffing (yes I stuff the bird), dressing (what ever doesn't fit in the bird goes into a casserole dish, thus being called dressing and not stuffing), mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, greenbean casserole, corn, cranberry sauce, lime Jello, cherry Jello w/ pineapple rings (set in the can and then sliced), black and green olives, and whole wheat dinner rolls.  (I cook the giblets for my dad and he has them on the side, ew, but he loves them so I cook em'!)


Dessert table: 2 pumpkin pies, 1 pecan pie, 1 apple pie and 1 pumpkin cheesecake.  Also any thing that is left over from the appetizer table is fair game as dessert too!! 


Beverages: Milk, sweet tea, water, a variety of Keurig coffees, teas, apple cider and hot chocolates.  I also have Diet Coke and root beer in the fridge if any one so desires a carbonated beverage.

I'm having roast turkey breast, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, cole slaw, hot rolls (commercial hard rolls).
The leftovers will be wonderful!
The turkey breast is bone-in so this evening I'll be boiling the bones & skin to get good broth to save in the freezer.  It is the basis for
really great gravy.

I used to do the whole bit - homemade everything.  Now that the sons are grown and live some distance away , I have scaled back.  If it is just huby & I a cornish hen with small amounts of the usual go-withs. 
They are coming for Christmas this year so I will go all out then.
Both sons will help in the kitchen.  The one daughter-in-law heads the clean-up!  Lucky me.

Turkey with stuffing,  (yes, I also stuff the bird and added a chopped apple to the stuffing, left overs went into a casserole as dressing) sweet potatoes, peas (to add color) fresh cranberry sauce, odd lettuces from my garden (yes, still going) with fresh tomatoes sliced on top.  A tomato plant came up in a large pot so I brought it in when it got cold and it is still producing plum sized tomatoes.  For dessert we had pumpkin and apple pie.  A nice white wine went with the meal.
