    Default Thanksgiving (US) food plans?

    So what are people planning on eating on Turkey day? I am going to my parents and my mother is planning some kind of oriental turkey casserole experiment thing???? We have agreed that I am going to roast a large chicken and bring it over just in case as a 'back up'

    so what are y'all planning on eating?

    *i did check and no matches came up and did not see another food thread for this*
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    I'm making a carrot cake. Never made one before, but I test ran it the other night and it was pretty damn tasty, if I do say so. I posted the recipe in the other section.

    I'm going to make some cranberry sauce, instead of just buying the stuff in the can this year. My mom asked me to buy her cranberries a few weeks ago and I bought 4 bags. She only needed one, so we've been shoving cranberries in everything lately.

    I'd want to know what this oriental turkey casserol is like

    Hehe, that's funny...but cranberries are good for you!

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    I am making the basic traditional stuff that is pretty standard for this region:

    turkey
    dressing (not stuffing!)
    mashed potatoes
    corn
    green beans
    macaroni & cheese
    pie

    maybe some other stuff, dunno, I'm still thinking

    Not having the big dinner until Saturday, when the hubbys fam is all in (and some staying w/us). But having the traditional stuff: Turkey/stuffing, mashed potatos, etc. Heart attack on a plate.

    What she said, except we eat peas at Thanksgiving instead of green beans and I'll be making snacks for the sporting events like candy corn popcorn balls and cookies. Every Thanksgiving I make a cranberry mazipan poundcake too.

    My 85 yrold Grandma is cooking with some of the aunts bringing side dishes.

    The Turkey.
    Grandma's homemade stuffing
    Her coleslaw
    My aunt's awesome mashed taters with sour cream and chives.
    Macaroni salad with shrimp. (aunts)
    Pumpkin pie (bought from local bakery)
    Sweet tater cassorole
    kale
    dinner biscuits
    beets
    assorted veggies and dill dip(aunt)
    Sometimes my aunt makes some crazy dish or dessert. Always good. Excited to see what it is this year!

    And then my uncle tries to steal most of the turkey to take home for himself! LOL.

    Roast turkey and gravy, of course
    mashed potatoes (my dad's recipe, with all kinds of herbs)
    green beans
    arugula salad
    mushroom, onion and sage dressing
    biscuits
    cranberry sauce
    pumpkin pie (somehow, I found a bakery to order it from-weird, considering Thanksgiving isn't observed here, and most people haven't even heard of pumpkin pie)

    I'm going to be cooking by myself for the first time, so any and all advice is appreciated.
