Thanksgiving Tuesdays and Thursdays- Sides- Recipe Share

      Okay, we've got the Turkey & the Pies - the most important! Just Kidding. We also needs sides to go with your Thanksgiving dinner. I sometimes have too many sides and A LOT of leftovers but its always great to have extra! Any who... Sides are really easy for most to come up. We all have to have the general Thanksgiving sides:

Mashed Potatoes
Sweet Potato Casserole
Corn Casserole
Macaroni and cheese
Stuffing & Stuffing Muffins
Deviled Eggs
Oh it all sounds so delicious, I want to eat now! I said earlier that Turkey & the Pies were the most important, however the sides are just as important even though I can never eat all this food we are having. What is your favorite Side Dish?
Here are the recipies for my favorites:

Mashed Potatoes- These mashed potatoes are my favorite and my sister in laws! She absolutely loves them. I have to make these and regular ones because my husband and kids want just butter, my picky eaters! The other ones have cream cheese in them and thats why they want just butter. They say they can "taste" the difference, maybe they can.
Whatcha need:
5lb bag of potatoes
1 8oz. Cream Cheese
1/2 cup of milk - maybe a little more to add if needed.
Salt to taste ( I prefer Cajun Seasoning)
Pepper to taste
2 Sticks of butter
  1. Peel and Cut Potatoes into 4's, cut up and down and side to side. Boil for about 30-35 mins, until soft. Mash the Potatoes while hot.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  3. Add 1 1/2 Stick of butter, Cream Cheese, tsp of Seasonings, and 1/2 cup of Milk
  4. Mix with a mixer on low to get it really nice and creamy, add more milk if neccessary.
  5. Place into a casserole dish, or something that can be baked in the oven.
  6. Cut the remainder of the butter and place on top of the potatos bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes.
