Thanksgiving Dinner Part One

I am quite excited _ cooking Thanksgiving dinner for guests for the first time. Just some close friends and their one year old, but guests nonetheless.
Menu
Green Salad with Sesame Dressing, Pecans and Dried Cranberries
Alton Brown's Roast Turkey
Gravy
Herbed Bread Stuffing
Mashed Yams with Chipotle and Lime (something along these lines)
Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts and Bacon (sort of)
And our guest is bring her famous Bourbon Pumpkin Cheesecake.

So far, the turkey is brining, the salad is made



the yams are roasted


and the stock for the gravy is simmering away

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I was so confused when I read your post until I remembered that Canada has a different Thanksgiving date- needless to say, Im very hazy right now. Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving to you :-)
