Preparing an "American" Dinner Party

Sometime in November I'll be hosting a dinner party for a Japanese family that treated me and a couple of friends to a fabulous dinner in their beautiful home. There's no way I can live up to the house, but I'd like to serve them a delicious (and impressive) meal if I can. Since it's November I'm thinking of Thanksgiving-inspired foods, especially American style foods that they may not be familiar with.

The problem is that my cooking space, implements, and ingredients are limited. I have a stovetop and a toaster oven, but no "real" oven. Chicken, good beef, and some pork are available, but no turkey.

I'm already thinking of doing a brie or roasted garlic on toast appetizer and roasted rosemary potatoes, but I'm stumped for other meat and vegetable dishes. Any ideas?
