    For me, born and reared a New Englander, your menu is no more traditional
    than Bob's.

    Turkey, bread dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, creamed onions, squash,
    cranberries, rolls, a version of ambrosia, pumpkin pie, apple pie. There
    would also be olives and celery sticks and after nuts in the shell.

    Bob is as usual playing with his food. There's a lo9t of western in that
    which is right for where he lives, We in NE never had the long season for
    growing sweet potatoes, wouldn't have had out of season things like green
    beans or corn, never heard of cornbread dressing. When I ran into those
    things I generally liked them, but they were not traditional.
    Here we do a collective Thanksgiving and the menu is a mess because each of
    us brings the thing no one else will, but which we are convinced is
    essential.

    Creamed onions? Is that a New England thing? I've never heard of it.

    Very close! Thanksgiving is a time for comfort food. When I was a kid.....

    Turkey, bread dressing (with sausage), mashed potatoes, gravy, candied
    sweet potatoes, corn, brussel sprouts, cole slaw, cranberry sauce,
    rolls, assorted pies and ice cream.

    Before dinner, my Mom would always put out celery sticks stuffed with
    cream cheese... it was the only time of year she ever made that.

    Now that I live in the South, the dressing is made with corn bread and
    no sausage (very good!), but everything else is pretty much the same.

    AND... we were/are one of those families that usually has Thanksgiving
    dinner around 1 or 2 PM...... and anyone who is able is welcome to
    turkey sandwiches around 7 PM.

    My grandmother always made creamed onions for Thanksgiving. I don't
    think anyone would touch them if I made them for my family, but the
    green bean casserole (my version of it) is an essential that they
    won't let me *not* do. I've tried.

    I make a cream cheese with chopped dried cranberries and nuts that I
    stuff carrot sticks with. It's PDG (pretty darned good).

    Last year I made a cream of onion soup for lunch. This year my ILS
    will be entertaining the children while we prepare, so we'll probably
    just scrounge breakfast/brunch leftovers.

    I'm with you there, Lee. I prefer the "traditional dinner" and I love to
    cook it myself. I always turn down invites to Thanksgiving dinner as I want
    to do my own and enjoy the smell in the house all day plus all the
    leftovers.

    I always buy a large turkey even if I have no guests coming (lots of good
    leftover recipes) and I'll stuff it with homemade dressing. I also make
    mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, sweet potatoes, and make gravy with the
    drippings from the turkey. I'll also skip dessert food sometimes but if
    not, I'll make a sweet potato pie.

    i left out the gravy and cranberries, but the creamed onions is the only big
    departure there, those are a party item in my family as opposed to a family
    meal, maybe because not many of us care for them, Lee

    part of our family menu is because until the last couple of years my mom has
    a huge garden, my sister is taking that over now, but everything except the
    turkey and some of the bread ingrs, i mean stuffing ingrs and the
    cranberries come from her garden, Lee

    That is exactly how I feel when people talk about salads at TG. Blech!
    To me they are NOT TG foods! Would the pilgrims have eaten them!?
