A few suggestions:

Since you are already doing roast Chicken with the trimmings ....

Triditional Sides would be: (in "my favorite" order)

1). Mushroom & Green Bean Caserole
2). Oven Baked Scalloped Corn
3). Baked Acorn or Butternut Squash w/ black pepper butter
4). Glazed Sweet potatos w/ marshmellow topping

BUT: I did a new side dish last year and it got "rave" reviews.

Ingredients:
* 1 lbs Fresh or canned Whole Green Beans (drained if canned) resurve liquid
* 2 slices of smoked bacon (diced fine)
* 1 small onion or shallot (jullian style cut {long thin strips})
* 1/2 cup cranberry sauce or jelly (the canned stuff is fine if you dont have the time to cook them from scratch)
* 1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes (less of this if you dont want it too hot)
* 1 clove fresh garlic (diced fine)
* salt to taste
* course black pepper to taste

Directions:
Render bacon in a medium hot skillet, cook until bacon is medium to medium crisp .... remove bacon to a paper towl and drain.

With just a small amount of bacon grease in the bottom of the pan, place the onions in the pan and saute until onions are soft and just begining to take on color. Add garlic and the pepper flakes. Saute about 2-3 minutes then add cranberry sauce/jelly. When jelly is combined (melted in), replace bacon and add green beans. If needed, you can add a bit of the bean liquid back into the pan to help thin mixture slightly. (I actually use white wine for more flavor). Salt and pepper to taste.

Reduce heat and cover. Allow it to simmer for 5-10 minutes. The beans should be firm and not overcooked. This dish should be served hot and the sauce should "just" coat the beans and bacon.

NOTE: The sauce should NOT look like gravy. It should be the consistancy of a vinigerette.

This dish takes 15-20 minutes start to finish. It only takes about 3 minutes to eat it!!!!!

roast mixed vegetables instead of the normal boiled carrots and peas...delicious. i often roast butternut squash, challots, garlic, courgettes, and parsnips in a little olive oil with my roast bird.

Just a tidbit on pumpkin pie, I have tried to make pumpkin pie from a real pumpkin not from the can, and you cannot honestly taste any diffrence...I thought you would be able to but you cant AND its a real pain to cut up and bake a pumpkin lol so dont feel bad for using canned pumpkin!

It was a fun experience trying though...I had so much pumpkin everywhere in pots boiling.

I have decided to try a stuffed zucchini recipe that I saw on the Food Network. I may even try a practise run tonight just to work the kinks out. I'll let you know how it turns out.
