Default What will you cook besides the Turkey?

Now that we will have Thanksgiving here after all I am trying to get some ideas for side dishes. WE usually have stuffing<lots of it> sweet candied yams, Broccoli with a cheese sauce, hot rolls. I need some more ideas! Off course cranberry sauce too.

We love the green bean casserole:
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) CAMPBELL'S® Cream of Mushroom Soup
3/4 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 packages (9 ounces each) frozen cut green beans, thawed
1 1/3 cups French's® French Fried Onions, divided
Directions:
1. Combine soup, milk and pepper in a 1 1/2 -quart baking dish; stir until blended. Stir in beans and 2/3 cup French Fried Onions.
2. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes or until hot. Stir. Sprinkle with remaining 2/3 cup onions. Bake 5 minutes or until onions are golden.
My Hubby adds cheese to the top at the same time he adds the remaining onions. Hope that helps.

Instead plan to grill steaks (rib eye), salad, corn bread,and friuit w/ sherbert. That is for wednesday.

On Thursday we are going to a local restruant, then to the new James Bond movie. Of course the football games to.
On Friday, hit the shopping malls early !!

Hi Carole,
I'm not the only one!!!! I hit the stores at 4:30AM. The toy store first then do all the other store. I'm done with all my christmas shopping by 8AM.

But, I grab the sale papers and have the family members circle items they want on thanksgiving day. My nephew circles the entire toy store sale paper. So when I go into the stores I know exact what to buy and I speed thru the stores at a go clip. The earlier you go the faster you speed thru the crowds. I find it a fun challenge that way. Go ahead call me crazy I don't mind.

We don't have any family and since we're in the restaurant business we won't be cooking any dinner. The restaurant will be closed so we'll just go down there and do some cleaning.

Regards,
Thomas

I am alone so I no longer cook. I used to put in a small pork roast along with the turkey. Of course I made onions, peas, mashed potatoes, squash, and candied sweet potatoes and stuffing. Always date nut bread, cranberry bread and carrott bread and banana berad For dessert pies and suet pudding.

If you're a southern girl like me, you HAVE to cook a sweet potato casserole. Mine isn't the kind my mother made (marshmellows on top), but does have a lovely pecan/brown sugar topping. Yum!!

Dorothy, as your neighbor about two hours away I agree completely with the sweet potato casserole ! I don't know if this is southern or not but it is what I am use to.

I will also do a pheasant appetizer. You marinate your pheasant in lime juice with some red and black pepper, oregano, cumin, cilantro. Then cook the pheasant for about 2 hours.

Take it out and strip the meat off and then lay it on a pizza dough (I cheat and buy the Papa Murphy's). Put on a thin layer of tomato sauce, homemade or store bought and add what ever cheese's and non-meat toppings you like. (I like whole milk mozerrella, jarlsburg cheese, mushrooms, onions and jalepenos.)

It makes a great appetizer. The bad part is that you can only use half of the crust for a normal sized pheasant. You need two birds to fill a full large Papa Murphy's crust unless you skimp.

Take care,
Mike

Large butternut squash peeled and sliced.
4 Granny Smith Apples peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups cranberries
1 stick butter


You can microwave squash until tender, but I prefer to pan roast until tender (350 for about an hour)

Combine apples with 1/4 cup sugar in heavy med. sized saucepan over med. heat until juices evaporate. In another pan with 1/4 cup of sugar add cranberries ,mix until sugar is dissolved... Combine all Mix all with butter.. if you want..

3:00 p.m. on Thursday..

Yes., I use fresh cranberries... we live in MA where fresh cranberries are "in".. 'Im making it tomorrow and will reheat it on thursday.Actually, except for the green beans which I will wash and trim....for one of the few times almost everything will be made ahead except the turkey and gravy. Don't forget to save the liquids from all the vegetables you cook and use it in the stockpot forturkey soup and some for the gravy..

Parrot Mom, we used to live in Rhode Island so I know all about the cranberry fields. I miss it a lot! Angela it sounds wonderful too! We are just the 4 of us as our kids want just a family dinner. Which is fine with me. Everyone have a great day!
