Recipes: Preparing for Thanksgiving

So, my son-in-law’s football team made it to the Missouri State Finals, which will be played in St. Louis the day after Thanksgiving.  His parents had originally planned to make a trip to Texas to see their extended family, but with the win – they are staying home.  And, I’ve invited them to join us for Thanksgiving.  My guest list now totals 15 people. That’s okay!  I’ll just grab a couple of extra turkey legs to roast and we’ll be fine. 

So, what are you planning on making for Thanksgiving? How many people are you expecting at the gathering you are hosting or attending? (my kids are already drooling and anticipating the dressing and gravy). Here’s what I’m planning on making:

Traditional Roasted Turkey – but I’m going to try this first– via Pioneer Woman’s Recipe.
Apple Salad
Deviled Eggs
Easy Cornbread Dressing
Mimi’s Easy Giblet Gravy
Corn Pudding
Classic Green Bean Casserole
Sweet Potato Casserole
Pecan Pie
Fresh Apple Cake
Dinner Rolls – I’m cheating and using some frozen rolls that are pretty good. I just don’t have time to make them from scratch – this time.

And, to add to the holiday cheer factor. I just have to share this photo of my friend’s baby.  Thank goodness for leaves!
