Is there anything else that must be at a full Thanksgiving dinner, in your opinion? For example, corn casserole or great aunt Agnes' best cookies? How about ice cream or pudding?
My dm always cooked the whole Thanksgiving dinner when she was able. She was raised on a farm, so we never had anything out of the ordinary farm food. It was always delicious, and she always made too much. We usually spent a few days with her, so we ate whatever was left over until it was gone. She often made apple pies, but we don't do that anymore.
