STUFFING  , How about a mashed potato with spinach or mashed cauliflower blended in?   Broccoli/cauliflower blend.   Glazed carrots.    Peas and pearl onions in a butter sauce.   Are there any tradtional tribal foods you have not tried to cook yet?

You could always make casseroles.  I cook for a crowd and you can usually makee the casseroles ahead of time.  My favorite is Paula Deen's squash casserole--it's terrific!  or you can do Broccolli cheese casserole--it's easy and yummy too!
