I will be making the usual Thanksgiving dinner that I have made every year since as far back as I can remember!

Appetizers will be pepperoni, dry sausage, fresh mozzerella, provolone cheese, black and green olives, red peppers, prosciutto bread.

Main course is Turkey, sausage bread stuffing, stuffed mushrooms, mashed potatoes, stuffed artichokes, sweet potato pie, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, waldorf salad.

Then for dessert we have ambrosia, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, italian cookies.

I gain about 5 pounds on this day! :think

You are so right Ash, nothing beats your grandmother's cooking, mine made the best soup and she was an adventurous cook too for those days, I remember her making things like dim sims, and we are talking 50 years ago now! Oh my God that's half a century. I really enjoyed reading what everyone is having for Thanksgiving, it makes me sad that we don't celebrate something like that, although I suppose Australia Day is a bit like that, but if celebrated it is usually only a barbeque. I am intrigued by some of the food though, what is a green been casserole? Judy we have surf and turf steaks here sometimes, which is usually a steak with seafood, can't remember if it is stuffed or just served on the side.

Anne, there are many different recipes for it, here is a good one...


Homemade Green Bean Casserole


.
Classic Green Bean Casserole
Serves 10 to 12. Adapted from Cook’s Illustrated

The components of the casserole can be prepared ahead of time. Combine the beans and cooled sauce in a baking dish, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. To serve, remove the plastic wrap and heat the casserole in a 425-degree oven for 10 minutes, then add the topping and bake as directed. This recipe can be halved and baked in a 2-quart (or 8-inch-square) baking dish. If making a half batch, reduce the cooking time of the sauce in step 3 to about 6 minutes (1 3/4 cups) and the baking time in step 4 to 10 minutes.

Ingredients:
Topping
3 cups frizzled onions

Beans and Sauce
Table salt
2 pounds green beans , ends trimmed, and halved
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 pound white button mushrooms , stems trimmed, wiped clean, and broken into 1/2-inch pieces
3 medium cloves garlic , minced or pressed through garlic press (about 1 tablespoon)
Ground black pepper
3 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 cups heavy cream

Instructions:
* FOR THE TOPPING: Prepare the frizzled onions. Transfer to plate lined with paper towels; set aside.
* FOR THE BEANS AND SAUCE: Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 425 degrees. Fill large bowl with ice water. Bring 4 quarts water to boil in large Dutch oven. Add 2 tablespoons salt and beans. Cook beans until bright green and crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Drain beans in colander and plunge immediately into ice water to stop cooking. Spread beans on paper-towel-lined baking sheet to drain.
* Add butter to now-empty Dutch oven and melt over medium-high heat until foaming subsides. Add mushrooms, garlic, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; cook until mushrooms release moisture and liquid evaporates, about 6 minutes. Add flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in broth and bring to simmer, stirring constantly. Add cream, reduce heat to medium, and simmer until sauce is thickened and reduced to 3 1/2 cups, about 12 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
* Add green beans to sauce and stir until evenly coated. Arrange in even layer in 3-quart (or 13 by 9-inch) baking dish. Sprinkle with topping and bake until top is golden brown and sauce is bubbling around edges, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

RumChata Cheesecake

Ingredients

15 graham crackers, crushed
2 tbs butter, melted
32 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup RumChata
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tbs vanilla extract
1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease 9" spring form pan. In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press into the bottom of the pan. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Slowly blend in RumChata and eggs. Mix in sour cream, vanilla, and flour until smooth. Pour filling over prepared crust. Bake for 1 hour. Turn off oven and let cake cool in oven with the door closed for 5 to 6 hours to prevent cracking. Chill in the refrigerator until serving. Top with dollops of glazed strawberries or cherry pie filling to finish, if desired.
