I'm hosting Thanksgiving at my house this year and would like other ideas for recipes. Any helpful hints?

I make this every year.
Dissolve jello in boiling water, add pineapple juice, then stir in cranberry sauce. Let set until jellied, then add pineapple , celery and nuts. Put in mold or bowl. Refrigerate. Here is a recipe for Corn Pie that my friend makes every Thanksgiving by request. Corn Pie Crust 1 1/4 cup crumbled Waverly crackers 1/2 cup butter Combine crumbs and butter, set 1/4 cup aside for top, line 9" pie tin with remaining crumb mixture. Pie 2 TBLS butter 1 1/4 cup milk 2 cups corn 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp onion salt 2 TBLS flour 2 beaten eggs. Combine 1 cup milk, corn and salt. Bring to boil, reduce heat and cook 3 minutes. Add flour to 1/4 cup milk and mix til smooth. Add to hot corn mixture. stirring constantly. Cook til thick. Add onion salt and beaten eggs-cool slightly. pour into crumb crust, top with crumbs. Bake 20 mins at 375 degree.
I usually serve a traditional southern dinner similar to my mom's. Roast turkey and gravy, stuffing made from breadcrumbs, mashed potatoes, green beans or green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, buttered sweet corn, cranberry sauce, yeast rolls and iced tea. For dessert, always pumpkin and pecan pie, sometimes apple too, and whipped cream served with piping hot coffee. Mom also usually did a baked ham also and sometimes I'll get a small one. It's a lot of work but so good!
Here's one that my cousin introduced me to a couple of years ago. Yum!
Grease a 9-inch square baking dish. Beat eggs in a mixing bowl. Stir in cream-style corn and sour cream until well blended. Add salt, cornbread mix and melted butter; mix well. Stir in shredded cheese. Pour casserole ingredients into prepared baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until browned.
