Thanksgiving recipes

That quintessential holiday of American cooking is quickly approaching, and my SO and I are looking forward to a peaceful, home-cooked meal (our menu is still undetermined; we might even forsake turkey for some other meat, or just have no meat at all). To help those who are still looking for ideas on what to cook, here are a few recipes:

Cran-raspberry-pineapple gelatin conglomeration
Two salads (Apples, pecans, and feta cheese in a feta vinaigrette, V, and olives, feta cheese, tomatoes, and onions in an olive vinaigrette)
Mashed turnips and potatoes (V?)
Mashed potatoes with bacon and cheese
Garlicky creamed spinach (V)
Creamy Brussels sprout gratin (V) - hard to scale up, but good for a small meal
Roasted cauliflower (V*, qe) - also hard to scale up
Flaky biscuits (V, qe)
Pear pie with a flaky walnut pastry crust (V)
Cranberry upside-down cake (V)

And, if those don't help, see the recipe archive for even more ideas (or just cook your family favorites).

(As in the recipe archive, V stands for vegetarian, V* for vegan, qe for quick and easy, and ? indicates that the recipe can fit into the given category with minor modifications.)
