  • Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, corn pudding, cranberries and cresent rolls. And pumpkin pie for dessert.

    You can always add a fruit salad or green salad if you need more sides. Corn pudding is a southern tradition and for us it just wouldn't be thanksgiving without it. It's a side dish, not a desert despite the name.

  • You can also make up a veggie platter with dip and bowls of olives too

  • Sophia has a good idea, we call it Relish Tray and include radishes ,cherry tomatoes,sweet and dill midgets ,green onions,sliced jalapenos,and everything else on a veggie tray.Add lettuce and it has a second life for leftover turkey sandwiches Thurs night.
