Thanksgiving planning

For Thanksgiving this year I am planning a very traditional meal, adopted for our small gathering (4 adults and one child).

We will start off with some cheese and crackers to nibble on while finishing the meal preparations: Cheddar Harlech and Robusto.

For the main course:
Bone-in turkey breast and turkey legs, cooked with a spice rub and grapeseed oil
Mashed potatoes with turkey gravy (and a mushroom gravy alternative)
Traditional green bean casserole
Fresh sweet potatoes in a candied sauce
Bread cranberry dressing
Relish tray
Yeast rolls
2007 Willamette Valley Vineyards Pinot Noir

For dessert: homemade pumpkin pie with whipped cream
