 Are you cooking this year or being a guest at someone's home?

I think I have my menu all worked out but I always forget something.  It will just be the 4 of us but that's how I like it. 
So far:
Turkey/Ham
Mashed potatoes
Dressing (forgot to add this, lol)
Giblet gravy
Rolls
Green bean casserole
Sweet potato with marshmallows
pea salad and/or cucumber salad
cranberry sauce

Dessert is where it gets difficult to choose.
I think we will have Pecan pie and Peach cobbler (both requested).  I was going to have Pumpkin, Pecan and cheesecake.  I might still make a Pumpkin...not sure.

This will be the first year since our very first Thanksgiving, that I'll be hosting. My cousin Rachel from SC, her husband and son are coming up and I am so excited I could puke!! My husband also invited one of his co-workers to join us because he is alone; literally, the man hasn't had a real Thanksgiving since 1998!!!

 We're making a turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole with a crumble topping, butterbeans, glazed carrots, rolls, homemade cranberry sauce, stuffing, pumpkin pie and a birthday cake. My cousin's husband's birthday falls on Thanksgiving so the cake is for him.

 I'll be looking over your menu because I know I'll forget something, lol!
Jamie posted her menu and I had forgot to put dressing/stuffing on mine...who forgets that? LOL!

That is going to be a nice Thanksgiving day meal for everyone ;)

I'm not used to making such big meals. I'm going to do my baking on Wednesday ( pies, cake and sweet potato casserole) because I do NOT want to be in the kitchen all day on Thursday!! My husband said he will cook the turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. He is also working like a madman to get our second bathroom that we're building in the basement, at least somewhat functional ( a toilet at least) before my cousin and her family arrive.
