Usually we do green beans or brussels sprouts but they are also usually the lone green in a sea of brown and beige. I'm also looking for something new, no offense to the beans and the sprouts. I need more veggies because Jim sees Thanksgiving as an opportunity to invite every starch to the dinner table. He insists on mashed potatoes, dressing or a savory bread pudding, macaroni and cheese AND rolls and if you let him he'd probably add in a savory pie and a rice dish. It gets browner and beigy-er. I'm not sure why but I have never considered salad a viable Thanksgiving Day side, feel free to change my mind.
