Gravy – pre-prepared
Mashed potatoes – stove top
Cranberry sauce – stove top
Corn – microwave
Rolls – pre-prepared
Green beans – oven 475 for 45 mins
Cranberry jello – stove top plus refrig (night before), family recipe
Sweet potatoes – stove top for 60 then oven 450 for 5, atk p. 170
Green Salad
Stuffing – crock pot 7 hours, nym p. 141
Cider – stove top, family recipe

Pumpkin pie – oven 375 for 50 minutes (night before), bhg p. 788
