Thanksgiving food post.....take one

Trust me, there will be more takes. We are hosting Thanksgiving next week. I'm looking at about 14-17 people for dinner. It makes me a bit giddy, but also a bit nervous. I volunteered, so that I wouldn't have to travel with the baby. Having the youngest member of the family in the moment, has it's major pluses. The drawback, is of course that I'm hosting Thanksgiving. Issa is a burner, not a cooker. I am a great baker, but not the best when it comes to cooking. On that front, luckily I'll have help.

However, this is where you come in. I need to know your favorite Thanksgiving/Holiday food item. If you can link me to a recipe, even better. Although I am capable of opening the dozens of recipe books I own to find stuff, I need to know what stuff people prefer. My family is no help. They are all busy with their lives and just keep telling me, whatever you want will be fine. But me, I'm not that into Holiday food. If left up too me, we'd be having sushi and chocolate raspberry cake for dessert. But it's not up too me. Not really anyway; so I need some ideas. The turkey has been ordered, but that's about the only thing we have a handle on; since my step-dad is going to smoke it.

So please, for the sake of the babies, help a girl out. Thanks and hugs and baby kisses and stuff.

Erm, well... It's not exactly a traditional dish, but here is what I am bringing to Thanksgiving this year, and I know it will be a hit. But it's a dessert, not a main dish...

In case the link didn't work, it's the Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars from Betty Crocker. They. ROCK.

Uhm. As for *regular* dishes? I like stuffing and green bean casserole a lot, or squash. Wait, I like most food. So I'm not the best for suggestions. lol.

I live for the stuffing, real mashed potatoes with gravy, and dessert :-) Oh, and my mommy's green bean casserole.

This recipe is a staple in our family for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, and it's a cinch to make:

Corn Casserole

1 8 oz container sour cream
1 stick butter or margarine, melted
1 large egg
1 15 oz can golden corn
1 15 oz can creamed corn
1 package Jiffy cornbread mix

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in an 8x8 glass pan and bake for one hour or until edges are brown.

See, at my house, our traditional dinner is boiled shrimp, queso and chips and beer. The things we're really thankful for. Oh, and black olives, one can per person.

I'm making a pumpkin cheescake for dessert and a maple glazed cranberry sweet potato dish. I can email the recipes if you're interested.

I also don't cook well. I've been banned several times from my kitchen.
