What's on Your Menu?

I haven't been on this site for a while but have to check in since Thanksgiving is impending. Please share what you are serving on Thanksgiving. There will be only five of us this year and two are children. So I was thinking of having a traditional menu, but going a little upscale on the appetizer: maybe a lobster or oyster bisque and a really good bottle of champagne to start. Then, turkey (brined), cranberry sauce made with Pinot Noir, mashed potatoes, the roasted sweet potato recipe from this site, peas, apple pie (Alton Brown's), and pumpkin pie (Cooks Illustrated.) There will definitely be dressing but am still searching for a good recipe - which maybe my life's quest.
