Starters: We have a tall narrow buffet on a long wall in our living room. This year I plan to clear this and use it for beginning appetizers and hot Spiced Cider which I plan to keep warm on a large tray in a crock pot with cups saucers and a ladle. Along side this will be assorted crackers and the blue cheese ball, and small tray of assorted raw vegetables, pickles, olives, and dip. A dish of peanuts and a dish with a few buckeyes will round it off.
The main meal: I usually serve two meats at Thanksgiving, both ham and a turkey breast. This is followed with mashed potatoes and turkey gravy, dressing, homemade noodles, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, wild rice and sausage casserole, green bean casserole, cranberries, hot rolls and butter.
Dessert: Pumpkin Delight, Butter Cake with chocolate frosting with sweetened Fruit Salad of mixed berries.
