i'm probably not making thanksgiving dinner (it's not celebrated here, and it's a regular work day. sometimes i do have a meal but i don't think it's going to happen this year).
but - my favorite sides:
*canned jellied cranberry sauce. i've never actually had 'from scratch.
*stuffing - usually bread stuffing with onion, mushroom, and celery
*roast sweet potatoes - scrubbed, cut into "fingers" lengthwise, drizzled with olive oil, a little lemon juice, garlic, kosher salt, cumin and roasted.
*some kind of fresh salad
*assorted relishes, pickles, olives, spreads etc
In fact, i could do without the turkey and just have a meal of all the sides!
