Thanksgiving is the only meal of the year where it is acceptable (and expected) to have multiple starchy sides. You can have your traditional mashed potatoes, stuffing, sweet potatoes, rice, and even bread. Of course, you can always step it up and make twice baked potato casserole, several different types of stuffing and even garlic mashed potatoes. It’s basically a free for all and it’s just so yummy!!
A few years ago, I was making a huge amount of stuffing, as well as lots of other dishes. As I was starting to prepare my food, I realized I was short a good casserole dish and had to go out and buy one. Let me just tell you now, there is almost nothing more useful when you are entertaining than a good casserole dish that goes from oven to table. In other words, it’s what everyone needs, a pretty oven safe dish. If you don’t have one, I highly recommend this one:
