What's this years menu?

I'm kinda sick of (the idea) the usual suspects.  The only for sure items so far are the turkey on the grill and an apple galette with goat cheese and dried cherries.  Everyone expects and insists on mashed potatoes  Lips sealed  Thinking maybe Jacques Pepin's smashed potatoes instead.

We usually go with the "usual suspects" at our place. People seem to like the comfort in this kind of menu. My wife has mentioned jazzing up the dressing in some new, but not too outrageous way. I do think we will forego the green bean casserole as we have for many years. Over cooked vegetables are just plain over.

My mom made the best chicken liver dressing, which was a recipe she inherited from her mom who was a French woman. Chicken livers are completely out of fashion these days, but I am thinking I am going to make this dressing anyway as a side dish. I will probably be the only one eating it. It is a heart attack waiting to happen. If I don't post after Thanksgiving, you'll know it took me out.  Grin
