So excited about Thanksgiving!! There's just two of us this year so I'm just doing a few basics.

Turkey & gravy
Mashed potatoes
Roasted veggies (sweet potato, brussel sprouts, parsnips)
Steamed green beans

That's all I have planned so far but I think it should be enough.

Hope you have a great holiday!!

I like to change the traditional Thanksgiving dishes with a new twist. I now make a tofu pumpkin pie that uses tofu instead of cream and eggs. I also roast the green beans in a 450 degree oven after tossing with a tablespoon of olive oil and chopped garlic.

GREAT! Are you getting a whole turkey, or just the turkey breast? Fruit salad sounds like an awesome dessert alternative!
Happy Thanksgiving.

I will be cooking a Thanksgiving dinner but only myself, my husband and I attending. My son likes turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and maybe a little stuffing. Doesn't care that much for dessert so I will forgo that except maybe a fruit salad. Will not make the green bean casserole that I love. He likes it, but eats very little so leaving it out. Husband is a vegetarian so will have a big salad, too. Anyway, cutting the fat where I can cause I will not gain weight for Thanksgiving! I amy indulge a bit, but I know what to do to survive! emoticon
