SIMPLE Thanksgiving Dinner Menu

I have to admit, my first inclination regarding Thanksgiving is to make one of everything that "should" be on the table! Really though, that is a lot of food for 4 people, and it's not very frugal! I don't even know yet if we are having Thanksgiving here or not (we may be at a friends, but if family comes in last minute, I want to be prepared!) If they do come... this is what we will be having:

Simple Thanksgiving Menu for 2007
  • Turkey Breast (I may cook it, or I may get it from Honey Baked Ham [again this year]) They do a really good job and we don't end up with more turkey that we can eat. If I make my own, I could/would freeze leftovers etc, but pregnant with a 1 year old (almost), we may just buy one ready. :)
  • Mashed Potatoes (made from scratch [I never knew how easy this was until recently] ~ we have cut all hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils out of our diet... this means most potato flake boxes.)
  • Gravy (Honey Baked Ham has the best in the world!... though if I make my own turkey, I may be using some of your recipes for this!)
  • Green Bean Casserole
  • These yummy looking Refridgerator Dinner Rolls from Seasonal Delights! Thanks for the recipe Kelli! (I've never made them, but after seeing the pictures, how can I not try?!?)
  • Apple Pie with Butter Crust ~ DH loves apple pie, so although Pumpkin "should" be the pie I make in my mind, I'm following the "to please your husband" guidelines! :) (I'll be using a recipe from my new Taste of Home Cookbook this year, but the butter crust is a recipe I've used a bunch of times! ~ shortening has partially hydrogenated oils in it)

Like I said, if we do it at all, we'll be keeping it simple!

I consider an Apple Pie to a Thanksgiving dessert. I really don't like pumpkin, but I do like sweet potato pie much better. But Apple pie, yummy! Especially with Ice Cream on the side!

this all sounds yummy!

I totally agree with the please your husband idea. I've seen lots of recipes for things that I don't like myself, but I know he'd love. So, I am throwing in some of those items as well.

Thanks for joining the fun!

Iam taking a pumpkin pie to Thanksgiving at my mom's because she wasn't going to make one... to me, you HAVE to have pumpkin pie. Oh yes, did I mention that it's my all-time favorite pie anyway? That could have something to do with it, LOL. I'm also making a very non-traditional chocolate pie.
