If you are in the clan, you missed ...
Jay and I (mostly Jay) carving a turkey pattern into a pumpkin (I bought the gourd as my annual Halloween carving pumpkin but didn't use it), and a menu of:
Turkey and stuffing (by MT)
Steamed Brussel Sprouts
Ricotta Cheese & Pumpkin Gnocchi in browned butter with hazel nuts and Parmesan
Imperial crab stuffed mushrooms
Remaining mushrooms and stems roasted in a balsamic vinegar/Dijon marinade
Butternut squash roasted in heavy cream, sage and Parmesan
Turnips au gratin
Candied Yams (mom's old recipe of butter and brown sugar
Amazingly, We forgot cranberry sauce of any sort, but no one verbally noticed.
