Thanksgiving Drool

So, my husband and I have been dreaming of Thanksgiving dinner for a few weeks now. Fried turkey, stuffing, gravy... it got me thinking, could it get any better?

How about a little sharing? How about I tell you what's usually on our Thanksgiving menu and you tell me what's on yours?

Fried Turkey
Gravy (usually with giblets)
Cornbread Stuffing
Rice Dressing
Sweet Potato Casserole
Cranberry Sauce
and way too many dessert options!

Some years we mix in potato salad and macaroni & cheese. Usually we have pecan pie, chocalote or lemon meringue pie, or some sort of ooey gooey squares.

This year we'll have our reunion on my Daddy's side. Imagine a room full of italians and you know we'll have a bunch of stinky food on the buffet table. So we'll likely have the menu above but throw in a huge italian salad loaded with olives, homemade spaghetti and meatballs, and a few other italian treats.

Now, what are YOU having?

p.s fried turkey sounds really delish, so does the corn bread stuffing, and rice are making me so hungry!!!

Here's what we'll be eating thanksgiving (and possibly for days after)

Roasted turkey
Gravy (of course)
Mashed potatoes
candied yams with marshmallows
Green beans
cranberry sauce
Sweet potato buttermilk dinner rolls

and whipped cream for the tops!

Gosh it sounds like a lot when I put it in a list like that!!!
