For those of you who, like me, have yet to celebrate Thanksgiving, I give you my "What on earth am I making for Thanksgiving this year?!?!11!" recipe list. It is by no means exhaustive; just a small-ish collection of recipes I've put together in the past week or two to help me (and now maybe somem of you) figure out the aforementioned question!

By the way, if anyone looks at over this list and thinks, "Goodness, this salad, that nut roast, and these two sides would all complement each other perfectly", let me know your thoughts! My idea of menu planning is generally: uh, make a bunch of stuff that tastes good?
Thanks, and enjoy! :o)
