menu looks good, you could try other sides like cabbage or collard greens, or mac and cheese or brocolli rice and cheese casserole, sweet potatoes, other desserts like chocolate cream pie. this is my 2nd year making dinner by myself and I'm really excited if you have questions just ask and I'll help as best as i can.

This is my menu. If you want any recipes, PM me. The cornbread dressing is excellent, but its meant to take the place of traditional stuffing and be served in a dish alongside the turkey instead of stuffed in (because i hate having to do the internal temp of the stufffing inside the turkey!)

Rosemary roastaed turkey

Mashed potatoes and gravy

Whipped sweet potatoes

Corn

Rolls (I buy these)

Homemade cornbread dressing

Green beans

Pumpkin pie

Deep Dish Brownies

Baked apples

It is only my family this year (just me, hubby, and our kids) but we are still going all out!  For drinks we will have sodas (a rare treat for the kids) and hot apple cider and hot cocoa with peppermint sticks for stirring :-)
