Thanksgiving Just Has to Have...

I'm baking today - pies for Thanksgiving. I only have one oven, so I needed to get started today, and pies will keep for a couple days. Tomorrow I have to make the rolls. Actually, I probably could have baked pies tomorrow, too, because I can't think of what else needs to go in the oven. I usually cook the turkey the day before Thanksgiving, but I decided to wait and cook it Thursday. I'll let Jeffrey carve it at the table, since he went and opened his mouth and said he wanted it that way. We'll see how that works.

Anyway, the pies. I made a German Chocolate pie for my darling husband. That's what he always wants because that's what his mom made for special occasions. My mom always made cheesecake, so I didn't think his chocolate pie was all that special. That's why my mom has probably made it more often for him than I have - in 21 years of marriage. Yes, Jeffrey is so deprived. But, I made one for him today, and I'm sure he will appreciate it. I've got a pumpkin pie in the oven now, because it's just not Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie.

My question for you is: What is something that you just have to have for Thanksgiving? Something, without which, Thanksgiving would just be incomplete? I would say turkey is a given, but I know some people don't eat turkey, so I'll say besides the turkey. And, if you don't eat turkey, what do you have?
