Sookie's Bon Temps Thanksgiving Menu

  I have almost 100 Sookie/  True Blood recipes on this blog and I thought we'd have a pretend Thanksgiving dinner with Sookie and the Bon Temps gang. Haha

This year Jason bought a turkey deep fryer at Sheridan’s Sport Shop and lots of peanut oil and he's going to deep fry the 10 # turkey that he bought at Walmart. It's going to be raining tomorrow so everyone will have to pile inside.

Sookie is making: Corn Bread Dressing ( not stuffing!)
Mashed potatoes
Green Bean Casserole
Sweet Potatoes with marshmallow
Gran's Pecan Pie

Below you'll find more recipes.

Who else do you think  is coming to dinner?

What are they bringing ?

Happy Thanksgiving Ya'll!
