Thanksgiving recipes

I am sure American Thanksgiving would be a  new festival for some Indians. But still I am seeing all of us , immigrants enjoying that day in our own way.  The Indians who are great party lovers find this day very interesting. 
American Thanksgiving focuses on family get-together. So it starts a week before with grocery shopping for the family's big feast. Then the thanksgiving mass in Church, baked turkey, the carving of turkey, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, cranberry sauce, playing together, shopping and lots and lots of fun with family and friends comes along. Thanksgiving fun starts even a month before, with those stores announcing discount sales. People buy gifts for friends and family during this sales time.
When we were new here, I was observing all these festivities around me and really really wanted to make it our family tradition too in the coming years.  But I could see many Indians are not much of meat fans  .......(not me...'When in Rome, do as Romans do' is my policy :)...), so I have to mix Indian recipes with American tradition for our parties :).  This is the story behind my own Thanksgiving menu.
So if you have similar situations like me, you will  find the below list of recipes useful.
Happy Thanksgiving !
