Shake up your Thanksgiving menu with these clever sides.

Side dishes invite improvisation. Unlike the turkey, which bears the burden of being THE entree, sides are varied and plentiful on the holiday table. If you dont like one, choose another. So this year, wake them up and shake them up. Be daring; be clever. You wont be snubbing tradition, just improving on it.
