Well, I'm a creole, so "traditional" for us IS unusual. :D

So far, our menu consists of:
1 fried turkey
1 steamed turkey
1 ham
1 beef roast
Gumbo
Oyster dressing
Dirty Rice
Roasted veggies
Potato salad
Broccoli rice casserole
Mac & cheese
Turnips
Turnip greens w/smoked turkey

...and stuff I'm surely forgetting.

I had me a day. I was the kitchen from @10AM-2AM. (Not a typo.) Something went wrong at EVERY damn step of preparing the meal. Still managed to get everything cooked, eventually. And at least everything tasted good.

Good food + liberally flowing alcohol + one guest who brought Blue Bell made for a pretty nice time, overall.

We got lucky this year, in terms of smooth prep. My wife and I worked that kitchen like a well-oiled machine. Bird was done when it was supposed to be done - that's the usual first point of failure, when the bird takes longer than expected to getup to temp.

My brother usually runs the kitchen solo. His wife tried to make sweet potato souffle', but it was a somewhat failure - too much sweet 'tater for the other stuff - nutmeg, all spice and cinnamon. I was worried it would turn into candied yams (way too sweet, even for me). It was ok, just not good. every thing else was spectacular - this year's turkey being better then last year's turkey.

Ok, My brother bought a summer sausage, some stone gound crackers and a Vermont cheddar. I have never tasted Vermont cheddar and I find I like it better then yellow cheddar!
