The Thanksgiving menu phone calls have begun. Questions that pepper the conversation include: Has the turkey been ordered yet? You are, of course, making the onion casserole you make every single year? And remember last year how they ran out of our favorite kind of stuffing? Maybe it'd be good to buy it now just to be safe.
If this sounds familiar, you too may live amidst a family of staunch traditionalists. Heaven forbid you try a new stuffing recipe or leave out the onion casserole in favor of something different. So how to go about shaking things up just a little?
