Thanksgiving Recipes and Tips

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! (What?! I say it all starts with Thanksgiving!) My mom does the hosting every year, preparing the turkey and ham (we have both), dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, rolls, cranberry salad, and a few pies. Then everyone else chips in with more sides, salads, and desserts.
Since there are “only” 22 in our family, we always invite plenty of others. If there aren’t 40 people in attendance, it’s a slow year!
My all-time favorite turkey prep tip is to get that bird made early! 
Unless you’re the Huxtables, and have a gorgeous plated bird to set and carve on your table, why deal with the mess? And really? Who wants to stare at a turkey carcass during dinner?
What are the must have dishes on your Thanksgiving table? Do you host the meal? Do you serve it up like the Huxtables? (Don’t tell me if you don’t know the Huxtables… that’ll just make me feel old.)
