What do people cook for thanksgiving dinner?

Well the holidays are special no matter what you serve and coming from another country it’s just fine to give the holiday your own “flavor” so to speak. Traditions are special at the holidays as is eating foods that remind your family of good times together, so don’t worry if the meal’s not the traditional american Thanksgiving meal.
Anyway, here’s a list of our Thanksgiving meal and BOY are we FULL afterwords.
Mashed Potatoes
Stuffing (dressing)
Green Bean casserole (Green beans with cream off Mushroom soup.and crunchy fried onions.The recipe is on the onions)
Dinner Rolls with butter
Yams or Sweet Potatoes (with marshmallows melted on them)
Jello Salad
Cranberries Pumpkin Pie
Fruit Pie- like apple, cherry, peach
Sparkling cider to drink
Wow am I getting hungry!
here’s another fun thing to do while you have family together: Draw a silly turkey face on a paper plate and staple colorful strips of paper to it. On each paper put a different direction. For instance one will say: Tell what you are the most thankful for this year. Another will say: Have everyone gobble like a Turkey and you pick the best one. A third might say: Hum your favorite Christmas song until someone guesses the name. And a fourth: Can you say this 3 times fast “Tom thought the turkey tickled tiny Tim’s toes” We usually have enough different ones of these so everyone at the table can pick a “feather” off our paper Turkey twice.

No wonder Thanksgiving evening is spent in a coma!

Mashed potatoes – boil red potatoes, mash with butter, salt, pepper and milk.
Sweet potatoes – boil until half done, peel and chop into pieces. Layer with bits of butter and brown sugar. Bake until bubbly and brown.
Stuffing – chop onion, celery, parsley and saute in butter. Add a bag of stuffing mix and a loaf of cubed bread. Season with sage, black pepper and poultry seasoning. Add as many as 6 eggs and enough milk to make it very moist. (this is richer than other peoples stuffing. We have Polish roots and they make a rich dressing) Stuff into bird. Put any extra into a buttered casserole. Put it in the fridge until later when there is room in the oven)
Green bean casserole – 1 can of mushroom, 1 can of celery soup, 2 cans of milk and about 2 tablespoons of Lipton onion soup mix. Some people put Durkee crunchy onions on top. Bake the casserole until bubbling.
