Ah, Thanksgiving.  Such an exciting time of year.  We are hosting our first this year and I am hoping that everything goes well.  I've done a lot of research to get exactly the recipes I want.  So here goes:

Herb-Butter Turkey (I've decided to cook this in a bag)
Traditional Mashed Potatoes
Italian Sausage and Bread Stuffing
Brussels Sprout Hash and Caramelized Shallots
Pan Fried Green Beans
Garnet Yams with maple Syrup and Maple-Sugar Streusel
Pear and Arugula Salad
Garlic Herb Bread Twists
Pecan Pie
Pumpkin Pie

I'll post the recipes and reviews as I get cooking!

Your first thanksgiving meal looks absolutely delicous. I am so glad to see green beans, it is a family tradition for us too. I do not serve salad, instead we have cold slaw. I followed my mothers menu all the years I have been cooking and my family loves it. I'm sure your family will enjoy yours too. Good luck and get the men to do the dishes!
