1. This menu should serve 8-10 adults plus smaller children comfortably. If you have growing teens, big appetites, or more people, I suggest doubling several of the side dishes and cooking a larger turkey.

2. Several of these dishes can be made ahead and refrigerated until time to bake. They are marked with ***.

3. Be absolutely sure to give your turkey enough time in the refrigerator to thaw!! Nothing is worse than finding a frozen turkey on Thanksgiving morning. Allow at least one day of refrigerator thawing for every 4 lbs. of turkey. Source: Butterball.com

4. The size of the turkey you buy will depend on the number of guests you are having and how many leftovers you want to have. You will find a 12-lb. turkey on the list and hopefully you will have leftovers for recipes we will be having in the near future, but adjust this according to your needs.
