Thanksgiving Dinner Menu

Okay, I think I figured out what I'll cook for this year's Thanksgiving. Let's see how close I stick to the menu, but this time around it'll just be my mom, dad, Jbro and hubby...oh and the cats, so I need to cut down on volume.

This year I'm going to definitely cook:
-roasted duck
-white mushroom sauce
-plain green beans
-black beans with bacon
-roasted root veggies (yams, parsnips, carrots, rutabagas and beets)
-corn
-cranberry orange relish
-pumpkin pie

Items I am undecided about:
-corn bread muffins
-Challa roll
-cranberry muffins
-a big honking ham
-mashed potatoes
-salad

What's everyone else preparing or eating (not that anyone else besides my brother and Sandy reads this blog anyway! But, if you happen to stumble across this entry, I'd love to know.)
