What are you using to cook your Thanksgiving meal?
I don't have much of a set-up, wondering what others are using in terms of equipment!
So far I have used a single burner induction plate with my only pot, soon I will use my only frying pan, I have put my stewed apples into a disposable aluminum dish for my crumble as I have no casserole dishes, I will do the same with the dressing. I have washed my only mixing bowl numerous times for the many jobs its needed for. I will cook my apple crumble and dressing in my combination microwave convection oven and tommorrow will reheat in the same. The turkey will be cooked in a borrowed roaster. We will be eating off paper plates with plastic utensils. I am not so well equipped either :D I do have many knives and various coffee parophanelia though.

Not to sound contrary but why waste resources like aluminum vIa disposable pans? Incredibly energy intensive to fabricate and then tossed as garbage after a single use seems much less responsible than washing out a roaster pan that once fabricated should have a useful life of 50+ years.
I borrowed one of those three section crock-pots, to put my three vegetables in. It kept them warm for an hour and worked wonderfully. I loved not having to worry about everything being hot and serving at the same time.
I also used an aluminum pan to roast the turkey, because I made my gravy ahead of time and froze it. No fuss at all.
I have a galley kitchen and served a buffet, so having everything streamlined worked well.
I used a Ron Popeil (of TV infomercial fame) "Showtime" rotisserie for the turkey so I could use my oven for a ham.
I used all of the following:
assorted pots, pans and colanders
assorted knives and knife sharpener
whisks, wooden spoons and spatulas
I ended up NOT using my crock pot, fat separator, baster or grill. All a first!
For Thanksgiving at my house, it's almost "all hands on deck" as far as kitchen appliances are concerned: gas grill, slow-cooker, regular oven, Breville Smart Oven, Showtime rotisserie, Presto deep fryer, Fagor pressure cooker.
OTOH, I didn't use my lefse griddle or my panini press... maybe next year!
