Well this year Dh has to be at work for 2pm and since mom and dad live almost an hour away and we want to be there on Friday so they can watch kids while we shop we just decided not to go until after he gets off work and do a turkey dinner on Friday evenin since my family is the only one out of my siblings that can come at all this week. so Dh and i said we can do a ham dinner on Thursday before he leaves. So Im tryin to figure out a menu. Since we won't be here on Friday i don't really need a whole lot of leftovers. so if you cook thanksgiving dinner for just your family, how many sides do you normally cook.
This is What the kids and i have so far.
Ham of course
Green bean casserole (my pick)
Homemade mac and cheese (Juli's pick)
Sweet potatoes (juli's pick)
Crescent rolls (you always have to have rolls)
Rice casserole (jessi picked)
Pumpkin pudding (my pick)
But that seems like so much food for just 5 1/2 people.
