At Thanksgiving, my in-laws had a southwestern style corn, that had bits of onion and peppers in it. Not too shabby!

Or you could do steamed carrots.

Sounds like a really good menu to me! 

What about brussle sprouts instead of green beans?  I found a really good recipe I was wanting to try that involved bacon and green apples.

I like the idea of steamed carrots – simple and nice color.

If you wanted to do something a bit fancier, I really like doing a simple stir fry of bell pepper (red and/or yellow) strips, green beans, snow peas, and maybe some thin red onion, with a yummy ginger-soy sauce.  Pretty, healthy, comes together really fast, and tastes great.

Oh, brussel sprouts!  I love that idea.  Especially with a bit of bacon…

that sounds like an awesome menu! i’m going to be doing brussels sprouts with bacon or pancetta as well, so that’s my vote! your guests are very lucky to be getting such a feast.

Sounds delicious!  We make a salad with spinach, bacon, hard boiled egg, mushroom, and purple onion.  Its very easy and very good.

I vote brussel sprouts as well. 

I think they’d go with your menu, plus they’re super tasty.  If you want to go healthy, you can steam them.  If you want to dress them up a bit, serve with some hazlenuts or chestnuts, or pancetta or bacon (ok, the last two aren’t healthy.. but omg bacon + brussels sprouts!).
