It’s a-comin’. That big day, that big meal. But if you plan ahead, you will rule the world on the third Thursday of this month. Here are 5 recipes that I am 100 percent sure will be on our table, and it would thrill me to no end if some of them were on yours as well.

If you cook this outside of the turkey (and then, especially if you hail from the South), it could well be called “dressing” instead of “stuffing”, then it’s a great vegetarian addition to the big meal. Loads of mushrooms make it rich and hefty and wonderfully flavorful. Leftovers are a gift.

There has to be a salad. There are two reasons why: 1) We all love salad. 2) A bowl of leafy greens on the table make us all feel better about what else we are about to consume. But nothing too-too virtuous (hi there, goat cheese).
