Thanksgiving is here! Or close enough, anyway; if you've not ordered a fresh turkey and intend to buy frozen, you need to get it TODAY so it has plenty of time to defrost. If, like me, you don't have your menu quite set yet, I have compiled a list of suggestions here.

My key ingredient to a tasty Thanksgiving dinner is a basic turkey stock. It simmers on the stove all night, and we wake up to a house already filled with the aromas of Thanksgiving. I use it to flavor everything from green beans to the turkey gravy, and of course to baste the turkey. If there's any left over, I use it as the base to simmer the carcass in for soup or turkey gumbo the next day. My niece, a culinary school graduate, is visiting for a week, so FREE SOUS CHEF! We're going to knock out a LOT of cooking for upcoming issues of the magazine, so I'll get her input on what to do with it.

Louisiana Banas Foster Bread Pudding

Alex Patout's Creole Oyster Spaghetti

Chef Alex Patout's Creole Oyster Spaghetti

This is one of chef Alex Patout's classic recipes. The sauce makes a TON, with very little additional prep work, so go ahead and make the whole thing. It freezes, and you'll have it to fall back on all winter.

Campbell's Classic Green Bean Casserole

Campbell's Classic Green Bean Casserole

Dorcas Reilly headed up the Campbell's test kitchen in 1955 when this recipe was invented. She says she has no inkling why it became a classic recipe; but today, the company estimates that about 20 million of these casseroles are prepared for Thanksgiving each year.
