  • This year my sister is doing ham, turkey, heavenly rice, and jello. My mom is doing 3 or 4 pies, green bean casserole, and baked corn. I'm doing mashed potatoes, noodles since my oven is acting up. We do our Thanksgiving "Dinner" at lunchtime, around noon or 1 p.m. So I'll probably cook right before we go over to my sister's around 11:30 I'd say.
