    I think you can forego the mac and cheese at dinner. Seems like a lot of food and that’s probably the least traditional item of your menu.

    Sounds great. I would add a sweet potato dish.

    I think I’m missing something. Appetizers at 10:30am?

    My only addition would be cranberry sauce, but I’m particular like that!  It all sounds fantastic.

    I think that sounds great! Definitely not overboard.

    I think your menu sounds just fine. Although, for me, I would be disappointed not to see sweet potatoes on the menu 🙁

    I would do sweet potatoes or green bean casserole in place of the mac and cheese, but I’m a big fan of those two 🙂

    Uh, if I’m invited, I will help you!  :-p  Sounds delicious but it is a lot of food.  Are all of your guests staying at your house (just wondering because the appetizers sound like they’re a little early in the day).  I haven’t tried this recipe for rolls yet but I’ll be making them for Fiance when he comes home from deployment (Better Homes and Gardens’ Cheesy Garlic Rolls http://www.bhg.com/recipe/vegetables/cheesy-garlic-rolls/).

    @hisgoosiegirl:  This! Replace the mac and cheese for sweet potatoes! Everything else sounds lovely!

    Listen, Chuck, my family does huge meals for guests at the minimum of once per week and even on Thanksgiving we FREAK OUT about how much food to make. Just this past weekend I made a four course meal consisting of a salad with fruit in it, fish, soup, asian burgers, jalapeno dip, caramelized shallots, potato dish, green beans with garlic sauce and mango… And I did all of that on a Thursday night. And even while that meal was being consumed and I was disucssing the Thanksgiving meal with my family, we were discussing how just because it’s Thanksgiving we truly feel the need to cook so much that eyes pop out of heads! It’s unreal!

    Your menu sounds lovely and I may steal a few things.

    sweet potatoes are pretty easy, both Darling Husband and my family usually do both. The timing seems different to me, as we’d probably do appetizers at like 11am and dinner at 12:30 noon…..6 hours is a long time to me, but if that’s what you’re all familiar with, then I would go with that.

    @ChuckNorris:  Well mac and cheese is my all time favorite food so it’s a tough question lol but you could always offer to make it for him later. I just think you are going to have a lot of leftovers! it’s hard to judge how much is too much sometimes
