Well, what would Thanksgiving be without a fine meal. :) Aside from the turkey, that mom makes, here are some yummy ideas for the menu this year. Or ... the dessert menu, as it were.

(Please note: Some of these are off-site. Please use your back button to return to this page):

Green Bean Casserole
INGREDIENTS:
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) Campbell's® Cream of Mushroom Soup
1/2 cup milk

4 cups cooked cut green beans
1 1/3 cups French's French Fried Onions
Directions:
MIX soup, milk, soy, beans and 2/3 cup onions in 1 1/2-qt. casserole.
BAKE at 350°F. for 25 min. or until hot.
STIR and then sprinkle with remaining onions.
Bake 5 min. Serve

Pumpkin Pie:
INGREDIENTS:
1 1/4 cups pumpkin puree, canned or fresh
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup evaporated milk, undiluted
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 unbaked pastry shell (9-inch)

PREPARATION:
Combine pumpkin, sugar, salt, spices, and flour in a medium mixing bowl. Add eggs; mix well. Add evaporated milk, water, and vanilla; mix well. Pour into pastry-lined pie pan. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350° and bake about 35 minutes longer, or until center is set.

And of course sweet potatoes, baked with brown sugar and marshmellows (I don't have an exact recipe for that concocotion, yet); MASHED POTATOES. Don't forget the mashed potatoes:

As many red or brown potatoes as you wish, Boil until tender, Mash, add milk and margarine, take your handheld mixer and mix it all up until desired smoothness (we prefer our slightly lumpy). serve.

Pumpkin bread.
We've come to love this, here in our home--and it's easy too. Yes, it is from Betty Crocker®, or Duncan Hines®, (whichever) but it's awesome stuff. So maybe try that this year as well.

Some other ideas are as follows:

For a main course, you could bake a ham, or, heck, even chicken could do nicely, if you'd rather. One also needs, for a fine Thanksgiving dinner, cranberry sauce, dressing, bread, or if you're a southern gal or guy, cornbread fits in well, always! :) And perhaps add a three-bean salad? Of course, you wouldn't want to forget the gravy! For dessert, if for some reason sweet potato or pumpkin isn't to your liking apple, blackberry, or mincemeat pie are fine substitutes.

Do you need even more ideas? OK, these should do fine:

This sounds good--I haven't tried it, but it sounds good:
Sausage Stuffing

And... for the moment, that's all I can think to add. I'm thinking I'm going to go hit the fridge. :) Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!
