  • make sure you do all the basics ( turkey, stuffing, real mashed potatoes, yams, noodles and pumpkin pie) .. and then find a couple of other not so traditional recipes that you would like to make a tradition ( we make "mexican wedding balls" every year and everyone loves them_

  • We do ..
    Mashed Potatoes
    Green Bean Casarole
    Cranberry Sauce

    Last year my dad added Navy Beans. (Ick!)

    For dessert we had Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, and Cherry Pie.

    You can very easily add in dishes that aren't traditional. As another answer said.

  • Ask your husband what your mom used to make, or even better, what HER mom used to make.
