Ok what are you going to cook, how many are you serving, what is your special recipe(s)...just general kitchen blather about Thanksgiving. We will have: Turkey w/ dressing cranberry sauce mashed potatoes gravy...I will use pan juices, not giblets I think. I'll freeze the giblets and use them down the road. Candied sweet potatoes Green bean casserole relish dish clam dip & chips homemade rolls w/ butter pumpkin pie w/ homemade whipped cream some other pie (apple? Mincemeat?) strawberry jello crab salad I think that's about it. I was toying with doing something different with the stuffing this year, but I don't think I will. My stuffing: a couple of boxes of seasoned stuffing mix (I really don't care which ones, usually whatever is cheapest...I have used cornbread mix in there too) Saute 1 onion, a few stalks of celery in butter, throw that in there Usually salt & pepper pretty heavily Stuff that fowl, put the rest in a casserole.
