    Since we have members from all over US (and elsewhere) What do you enjoy with your Thanksgiving meal besides the meat, potato, and gravy? We always have the same green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, and dressing. I'm looking for a couple new sides to add to the meal.

  4. I like the dressing of course and then the yams\sweet potatos. If I could eat pumpkin pie as a side instead of having to wait for dessert I would count it.

    Green bean casserole. Broccoli cheesy rice.

    Does pecan pie topped with Blue Bell ice cream count as a side?

    Green bean casserole, the inventor of which died recently at 92. From CNN:

    (CNN)Across dinner tables in America, the green bean casserole is a Thanksgiving staple and has been for years. One month before the casserole's customary time to shine, the woman who created it has passed away.
    Dorcas Reilly was 92 and died of Alzheimer's disease on October 15 in Camden, New Jersey, the Hinski-Tomlinson Funeral Home told CNN.
    Reilly was one of the first full-time members of Home Economics department at Campbell's. That's where she came up with what the company calls "the mother of all comfort foods" in 1955.
    She simply combined green beans and Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup, and called it green bean bake.
  13. Candied yams and cranberry salad are popular at our house.

    Longneck squash baked slathered in butter and brown sugar. My sister makes this awesome summer squash casserole with grated carrot onion, cream of celery soup, sour cream topped with butter garlic ritz crackers. Oh yeah!

    I found it completely strange at first but my In Laws do cole slaw... Also, their dressing is intensely difficult to prepare and doubt many would invest that much attention to it but it is divine and even better than the bird itself.
