Hey everyone! Autumn is upon us (at least it is here, in Philadelphia) and I am gearing up to host my first Thanksgiving at my own place. I'm a pretty competent cook and have helped prepare Thanksgiving dinner before, but am a little anxious about doing it all on my own. I'm also a newly ex-vegetarian, and while I've been cooking meat for the last few months, I have never prepared a whole turkey.
I'm looking for turkey ideas and sides, as well as desserts. Should I do appetizers? I'm expecting 8-10 people, probably closer to 8.
So far, the following is what I have nailed down. I'm open to suggestions for recipes for all.
