    What's on the menu? What's the plan?

    I am making putting in the oven a turducken stuffed with cornbread dressing with a fig sauce and gravy. We are having Creole corn, collard greens, red beans and rice, bread pudding with rum sauce, Kentucky butter rum cake and a sweet potato pie.

    That's a good question. Now that you mention it, I don't think that I am allowed to even make that call. Hell, I could be sentenced to the kid's table. That will have to go up the chain of command.

    I'm driving down the day before to start cooking. So, about 3 1/2 hours after I am told to put the turducken in.

    I've disowned my brother and all my local family are dead so it's just the Wife and I.
    Going to smoke a small fresh brined turkey,the Wife will make some home made cranberry sauce and cornbread dressing along with some mashed garlic tators,some homemade yeast rolls and turkey gravy.
    And of course a pecan pie.

    Might have to add some collard greens now that you mention it.
    The Wife makes some bad ass greens be they mustard or collard.

    We are hosting this year... 19 people.
    We will be roasting the turkey, making cornbread dressing and mashed potatoes (and of course gravy via the drippings)
    Other family members are bringing other sides/desserts.

    This Wednesday we are having "early Thanksgiving" with my kids, they are both respiratory core therapist and work Thanksgiving day.
    Going to make Leg Quarters, Mashed Sweet Potato and Risotto. Kids are bringing salad/dessert.

    The bread pudding is a must. Here is the deal. The whole order the turducken thing was so that we wouldn't be in the kitchen from 5 in the morning until the dishes are done. Then 75 other items were added in..........because of all the time we saved with the turducken.

    Just the thought of 19 people congregated in one space makes me want to lock myself in a closet.
