We're having my SIL and her family over for dinner. I'm making:

Turkey
Stuffing & dressing (we have people who like both, so I make the same recipe and cook half in the bird and half out)
Mashed potatoes
Gravy
Corn
Broccoli cheese casserole
Cranberry sauce
Pumpkin pie
Pumpkin cheesecake w/ gluten free gingersnap crust
Apple crisp

SIL is bringing:

Yeast rolls
Peas
Green bean casserole
Pistachio Jello salad (I think...I dunno, I never eat it due to my nut allergy)
Cherry pie

I love making Thanksgiving dinner. It's just the four of us and we're not crazy-big eaters so I keep it fairly simple.

Turkey
dressing
gravy
mashed potatoes
cranberry sauce
sweet potato praline casserole
green beans
buttermilk biscuits
cherry pie - not very Thanksgiving-y but no one likes pumpkin and I can't eat a whole pecan pie by myself

But what about cranberries? Or apple pie?

Using my iphone with my toe thumbs. There will be typos.
My mom makes something similar (though with butter, so not vegan) for her sweet potato dish. It's one of my favorites.

I have some frozen cherries from the farmer's market earlier this summer and cherry pie is hubby's favorite, so there ya go.

How can you hate pie? Pie is perfect! I don't care what filling it has (unless it's nuts and that's just because they will kill me), I will eat some pie.

Further evidence that you are a good, sensible human being.
It's pie season. Well, summer is pie season, too. And then in spring there's rhubarb, so, yeah. And winter is citrus time, and I love me some Shaker lemon pie and blood orange tarts.

But fall is awesome for pie:
Concord grapes
Plums (at the beginning of fall)
Tomatoes (at the beginning as well; mmmm, tomato pie)
Apples
Pears
Cranberries
Persimmons
Sweet potatoes
Winter squash
QUINCE!!!
Plus figs and nuts, too!

So many pies to bake, so little time.

Oh, lord no. Perish the thought. My family loves pie, but no one has quite the sense of adventure and variety that I do. I made a buttermilk pie last week that everyone loved, though. We definitely prefer pie to cake.

Like I said, I know cherry pie is not traditional Thanksgiving fare, but my husband requested cherry and I couldn't say no. I lurve him!

Lol!

I figure that my pie heathennes is balanced out by buying the freshly killed, locally bred and grown turkey I'm picking up in a few hours.

So what is your menu? Did I miss it? Surely there will be bacon in at least one dish.

I'm going to my parents' house, and my mom enjoys doing the meal herself. She'll want assistance in cutting, cleaning, etc., but she prefers to do the bulk of the work since the whole family doesn't get together often. So, I offered to buy the turkey.

But, the menu is usually pretty standard, basic, something along those lines.

Turkey with stuffing and dressing
Cranberries
Corn
Green bean casserole
Mashed potatoes
Candied sweet potatoes
My grandmother's pumpkin pie recipe which is pretty spicy
A less spicy pumpkin pie

Nothing particularly interesting or novel or creative, but it's what we do and enjoy. There's a sort of comfort and stability in having the set thing for years running.
