Thanksgiving Menu

I've been putting together the Thanksgiving Menu recently. I just started to wonder what you all were making, too.
Tell us what you're planning! Post a comment with your menu, traditions, and/or what you're doing for the holiday this year!
Here's mine so far. I'll post the complete menu when it's all figured out!
APPETIZER: Roasted Pears with Blue Cheese (Ina Garten)
TURKEY: Still working on the Turkey. I'm thinking about brining this year. Has anyone done this before?
STUFFING: Caramelized Onion & Cornbread Stuffing (Tyler Florence)
SWEET POTATOES: Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Honey Butter (Tyler Florence
VEGETABLE: Creamed Corn with Crispy Bread Crumb Topping (Texas Monthly)

WOW--that menu sounds so yummy!
Yes, I brine my turkey every year in allspice, peppercorns, bay leaves, and of course, salt water. It makes the best turkey ever! One year I totally overcooked it (by like an hour) and it was still juicy!
So the recipe is on, It's called Apple Cider Roasted Turkey. I don't make the apple cider gravy, though, as my family prefers savory gravy.
I am also making cornbread sausage and sage stuffing (you can't stuff a brined turkey, though), and orange-essence cranberry sauce, and garlic mashed potatoes (gotta use real cream in those babies). My friend is making the rest!
Hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving! Love you, e.
