HELP! First Thanksgiving

jdutch | Nov 14, 2006 03:02 PM

Hi everyone! Ok here’s the deal. I am a 24 y/o just-out-of-college-student. Neither my roommates or myself can make it home for Thanksgiving this year, so we have decided to take in all the Turkey Day orphans, and have dinner at our house. This will be my FIRST EVER Thanksgiving planning endeavor. Fortunately, the one thing I don’t have to worry about is the Turkey, but I have been graciously volunteered for all the sides. I am looking for some recipes that border on easy (since I am pretty much on my own) but are still delicious (as we are all obsessed with good food). Things that can be made the night before are great, and I am working with fairly limited space in the kitchen. Any tips, tricks or advice are more than welcome.
I am excited to give this a shot, and I am really looking for that meal that makes all our friends feel at home, since I know a lot of them are wishing they could be there. Thanks in advance!!!
