All my other recipes are at home in my trusty recipe box - will have to dig them out when I get home. What are you wanting to serve? Are you having anyone bring things - ie someone bring pie saves you having to make them (if you don't like baking - I love doing pies)?

Candied sweet potatoes are a requirement at our family Thanksgivings. We usually start with canned sweet potatoes or yams (saves time), then puree (blender or mixer works because they're soft) and add brown sugar to taste. Top with marshmallows and put them in the oven until the marshmallows melt.

Quick easy ham in case some don't do turkey, crock pot, add a cheap spiral sliced ham, a large can of crushed pineapple, and a lot of brown sugar. Cook for a few hours on low until good and heated through. I love it because you can toss it in and forget about it that AM while everything else cooks. I have recipes for corn casserole, green bean casserole, broccoli casserole, cranberry jello salad, lost and found fruit salad, and chocolate peanut butter balls if you want them. Let me know, I'll dig out my holiday file.

Apachie, what is lost & found fruit salad?

Funny how things are regional. I never heard of or saw green bean casserole til recent years. But, oyster stuffing is not so rare here. Some folks do a whole filet of King salmon instead of a turkey, WAY more expensive, though.

I agree Caroline, it is interesting how regional some things are!

The standard menu here for Thanksgiving, everything has to be homemade and most don't have recipes aside from baked goods & the gr bean casserole, thank you campbells soup My grandma, mom, sister & I split the cooking duties.

Turkey - has to be brined and done in the convection oven, juicy goodness!
Country ham - for everyone but me (ham, yuk!)
Chicken & Noodles
Mashed potatoes
Green bean casserole
Candied sweet potatoes
Stuffing (not in the turkey) the bread kind
Scalloped sweet corn
Homemade bread (with pear butter and assorted jelly made during summer)

Crab salad/shrimp cocktail/veg tray/deviled eggs for snacking on - mainly for impatient kiddos

Dessert gets a bit crazy but it's worse at Christmas when the cookies and candy get added to the list too.
Pecan pie
Zucchini cream pie
Normal pumpkin pie and bourbon chiffon pumpkin pie
NY style cheesecake
Pumpkin choco-dot bundt cake (pumpkin, chocolate & pecan)
Banana bread
And football.

MHF, Lost and Found Fruit Salad is a creamy almost puddingish dish with pineapple, bananas, pecans, mini marshmallows, and cherries. I love it. Could literally eat the entire thing in one sitting by myself. It does require some cooking, its not hard, just a little time consuming as you can't walk off or it WILL scorch.

Oh my, that sounds really good.
I make home made tapioca and cheese from fresh milk and this sounds right up my alley.
Would you be willing to share the recipe?
