Don't pass up the chance to enjoy Thanksgiving supper outdoors if the weather is nice. Fill a big table with platters of Two-Alarm Deep-Fried Turkey, bowls with Cranberry Compote, Classic Parmesan Scalloped Potatoes, and your family's must-have sides, breads, and salads. Part of the fun to this get-together is standing in line, plate in hand, waiting your turn to serve yourself. Settle around the outdoor tables, enjoy dinner, and remember to save some room for Sweet Potato-Pecan Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Frosting. Serves 8.
