    Edited for update:

    It's still fluid at this point but here is what I'm thinking.

    Roasted home grown pullet, she is on the scrawny side but will be plenty for the two of us.
    Cornbread dressing, some with oysters.
    Canned cranberry sauce, to quote Rick Bragg "we don't hold with cranberry sauce that don't slurp when it comes out of the can"
    Parker House rolls (ugly but did better than expected)
    Broccoli rice casserole.
    Green beans.
    Sweet potato casserole.

    Hoka (local grower) turkey roast (its a deboned turkey rolled up like a roast, both dark and white meat and I wait all year for this! [​IMG] )
    side of turkey thighs and drumsticks
    roasted sweet potatoes
    wild rice with smoked oysters
    buttermilk corn muffins
    "asian" greenbeans (with ginger, water chestnuts, sesame seeds, soysauce)

    Today I am making real pumpkin pie with our real eggs by Martha Stewart's recipe, and apple pie (gluten free crust)

    Thanks everybody for posting! I only have my little family of 5 plus my own mother for Thanksgiving, and I admit it feels lonely. This is the first thanksgiving in years that I'm not working, so I am very glad to be home, and I look forward to "living vicariously" through reading about all your dinners!

    I hope some pictures get posted! [​IMG]

    Roast goose, cooked with apples.
    Baked yams with butter
    coleslaw
    pecan pie

    I absolutely despise those canned yams cooked with brown sugar and marshmallow. I was 50 years old before I discovered yams are actually delicious if you don't try to turn them into candy. I had to go to 3 stores in order to find Beauregard yams.
