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
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.
Zucchini cream pie
normal pumpkin pie and bourbon chiffon pumpkin pie
NY style cheesecake
Pumpkin choco-dot bundt cake (pumpkin, chocolate & pecan)
