It was just the 2 of us, so we kept it small and had just the basics (minus tamales cuz we couldn't get down to Evie's this year) Turkey, Mashed taters, gravy, stuffing, green Bean Casserole and pumpkin pie.
He totally kicked up the Green Bean casserole and taters tho!
Hubby's Groovy Green Bean Casserole

1 large can condensed cream of mushroom soup
3 small cans cooked green beans
2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
8 oz. bacon
diced 1/2 onion
6 oz. bread crumbs
mix together the green beans and soup. Add 1 packet of alfredo sauce seasonings mix and parmesan cheese (we added about cup ... add as much or as little as you like)
Pour into baking dish and bake in 350 degree over for 25 minutes
Cut bacon into bite size pieces and saute. Add diced onions and cook until carmelized. Remove from heat and spread over top of green bean mixture. (you want the bacon to be crispy)
Mix together remaining parmesan cheese and bread crumbs and then sprinkle over top the bacon and onions.
bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the topping is melty and crispy.
