Thanksgiving Menu

I'd like to show you what I'll be serving on Thanksgiving day at our house! The food I cook is always rather simple and I try to make as much of it ahead as I can so I can enjoy my family a little more on Thanksgiving day.
Here is a Waldorf Salad and I just love this! But somehow I just fix this during the holidays! Do you ever do that with a certain dish?

We must have gravy. I make a pretty good turkey gravy but have run across some of your recipes that I may just try this year.

Mr. Precious dearly loves his cranberry sauce. This is one thing I always pass up, just don't like the stuff!

I will never pass up a big heaping spoonful of garlic mashed potatoes and a little gravy drizzled over the top!

Sweet potato casserole...we all love this dish! Can't make this with canned sweet potatoes. You just must use the real thing. There really is a difference in the flavor! Trust me! ;)

I know, please don't laugh or gag! We like Green Bean Casserole.

A few roasted carrots on the side!

Rolls hot from the oven smeared with butter!

Take a ten minute break while I clear away the dishes and I'll cut you a slice of pumpkin pie with a little dollop of whipped cream!

And to top it all can have a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side!
Be a bunch of thankful sweeties,

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~
The Thanksgiving Song
Love to eat turkey
Love to eat turkey
Love to eat turkey
'Cause it's good
Love to eat turkey
Like a good boy should
'Cause it's turkey to eat
So good
Turkey for me
Turkey for you
Let's eat the turkey
in my big brown shoe
Love to eat the turkey
At the table
I once saw a movie
With Betty Grable
Eat that turkey
All night long
Fifty million Elvis fans
Can't be wrong
Turkey turkey doo andTurkey turkeydap
I eat that turkey Then I take a nap
Thanksgiving is a special night
Jimmy Walker used to say Dynomite
That's right
Turkey with gravy and cranberry
Can't believe the Mets traded Darryl Strawberry
Turkey for you and Turkey for me
White meat, dark meat
You just can't lose
I fell off my moped
And I got a bruise
Turkey in the oven
And the buns in the toaster
I'll never take down My Cheryl Tiegs poster
Green beans and sweet potato pie
Sammy Davis Jr.Only had one eye
Turkey for the girls and
Turkey for the boys
My favorite kind of pants
Are corduroys
Gobble gobble goo and
Gobble gobble gickel
I wish turkey Only cost a nickel
Oh I love turkey on Thanksgiving
