Thanksgiving Day menu

Mom and I went to lunch last week and planned out who would do what. I realize now that some of that list was somewhat nebulous as to who does what, at least in my mind... I need to go to the store again - I forgot the Hawaiian Rolls.

I've done the two pumpkin pies; I'm making a "Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake" which I suspect will turn out like pumpkin bread pudding. Still need to do the jello salad (oh, my God - it's been years. I haven't made that since I graduated from "weird aunt" status). I don't do sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top - isn't there enough sweet stuff this time of year? I will bake the sweet potatoes in their skins, peel them, mash them with butter, salt, and a tiny bit of brown sugar. Or maybe I'll leave them in small chunks and just add butter. Hmmm....

2 ROASTED TURKEYS. Michael Ciarello’s recipe
Mashed potatoes (10 lbs)
Peas and squash casserole
Rutabaga, mashed
Fresh cranberry relish
something chocolate
Sour cream
Publix pound cake
Sweet potato casserole (sayre)
Jello salad (sayre)
Jellied cranberry sauce (sayre)
Pumpkin pies (sayre)
4 packages hawaiian rolls (sayre)

I also laughed uproariously at the inclusion of "something chocolate". That's my Mom!
