So I think I'm doing Thanksgiving dinner this year...
I moved away from home to go to school about 3 years ago and my mother might finally be coming to see me and my brand new apartment (as opposed to me going to see her all the time). My apartment is pretty impressive, especially for a student like myself...and I want a meal that is just as impressive.
So the problem is, I'm drawing a blank when I try to come up with anything other than the traditional turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, candied yams, cranberry jelly, blah blah blah. I know how I'm doing my turkey, so I don't need any ideas there. But what I'm wondering is, if anyone has any ideas or links to some more "modern" sides and/or desserts that I could make as a part of our Thanksgiving meal.
