    Time blew by so fast that, believe it or not, Thanksgiving is right around the corner. We're planning out our menu, and it's looking pretty good. I can hardly wait! So, what's on your Thanksgiving menu this year? Post it here!

    Here's my menu:

    -Turkey and stuffing
    -Old Fashion-style green beans, with tangy chopped bacon and vinegar
    -Rolls
    -Mashed potatoes and gravy
    -Potatoes Au Gratin
    -Sweet potato soufflé

    Al, I'm salivating as I read your menu! It looks great.

    Boyd, I've never had roasted rabbit before. Sounds interesting.

    Don't think we'll have one. Was at the store and asked DH about a turkey and he said he didn't want one, so dunno. [​IMG]

    Rotisserie roasted venison
    green bean casserole (beans from garden)
    Baked squash (squash from the garden)
    maybe some fried okra (from the garden of course!)

    I don't make a big deal of it because we're usually hunting most of the day anyhow.

    ...but I like to eat. [​IMG]

    Cyn, your hubby is crazy. How could anyone not want Turkey? Of all the meals we're having over here, Turkey is one that I am especially excited about.

    HLAC, your menu also sounds very tasty. Fried Okra is a great idea!

    I don't eat meat other than seafood, so I will be making a big pot of seafood gumbo as my contribution.
