Final Decision on our Thanksgiving Menu

Amanda and I finally sat down yesterday and made a final decision about what we're having for our Thanksgiving meal.   I appreciate those of you that shared your family traditions and gave me some new ideas and recipes.  All of the dishes will be gluten free with the exception of the Mandarin Orange Cake which was requested by my daughter in honor of her birthday which happens to be November 24.  (We are having a combination birthday party and Thanksgiving celebration all in one :)  Here's what we're planning:

Cornbread dressing
Giblet Gravy
Sweet Potato Casserole
Garlic and Leek Mashed Potatoes
Green Bean Casserole (with homemade cream of mushroom soup and  french fried onion topping)
Layered Salad
Broccoli Salad
Bread (Amanda will be making bread with gluten and I will be making gluten free bread)
Apple Crisp
Sweet Potato Pie
Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie (this has always been my husbands favorite pie.  His mom used to make them for him)
Mandarin Orange Cake

I'm getting hungry just thinking about all of this "good eatin'".  Can't wait for next week to get here :)  For now, I guess I'll get to work making the things that freeze well so I won't be to tired to enjoy the food on Thanksgiving Day!
