unique t-giving dishes? Is it inappropriate to include "unique" dishes? I notice most people stick with turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and salad. However, it's rare to see unique items on the menu. Strange!

Traditions are like that.

Having said that, there are lots of variations potatoes, yams, and green veg, and for that matter, the turkey and stuffing.

I just saw a chef up here slicing both cooked potatoes and sweet potatoes in 1/4" slices, placing them in layers inside a large ring, slathering them with sour cream, sprinkling with pumpkin pie type spices, topping each layer with a light colored cheddar cheese, then baking.

bacon pecan pie!

We do a slight spin on favorites. My daughter made a bacon pecan pie to die for! We try to keep it simple with half the dishes 'cause makes the others shine. I like a simple squash with butter and dill but then next to it I like brussel sprouts with almonds and raisins and carmelized onions. Mashed spuds with sour cream and cream cheese, chives and roasted garlic next to plain baked sweet potatoes. We try a new stuffing every year. Last years oyster stufffing got a thumbs down but the sausage apple stuffing from the year before got all thumbs up.

One thing that never ever changes is a cranberry salad that my m-in-l made every year. She is gone now but she still joins us via her salad. Now my 9 yr old grandson makes it.

we have to have pumpkin pie (yuck) and another special dessert. This yr my son and d-i-l are making something they have on their gotta try list. I would be happy with Frozen pot pies as long as we were all together.

Enjoy your holiday and be thankful for all your blessings.

Each year my sister or I make a new

version of brussels sprouts just to be inventive. Sometimes panfried with pancetta and pistachios, sometimes roasted with garlic and dusted with pecorino, lots of variations on this.

There is a cranberry dish that is on the NPR website that looks entirely crazy. I have not had the nerve to try it yet. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4176014

I think each year you make some traditional dishes and try something new. How else do traditions get started?

Yes bring the out the different sides!!

With my boyfriend's diet restrictions I am going to have to get really creative this year with my stuffing, fat content, and pie creations. Not to much salt, no sugar, and little carbs, a Thanksgiving nitemare. Though for stuffing I am going to do a spinach and cremini stuffing, just omit half the breading and add some smoked honey ham,....fresh herbs

Also mug cakes on the menu too..
