After Thanksgiving Buffet

This is still the same Complete Holiday Cookbook - there are three more Thanksgiving menus, in addition to the other two! This is the After Thanksgiving Buffet. When would you serve and eat that? The menu:
Turkey Casserole
Minted Glazed Carrots
Green Beans
Mushroom Cheese Sauce
Raspberry Salad Ring
Mincemeat Cake
Then, a Lemon Meringue Pie recipe is added. Yikes. That's a lot of odd flavors together!
Turkey Casserole doesn't actually sound too bad, though:
1 cup celery
1 large onion
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1 tsp. sage
1 large loaf bread, cubed
3 eggs (I didn't say it was healthy!)
3 cups diced turkey or chicken
2 cups turkey or chicken gravy
Combine celery and onion; mince in electric blender. Add celery mixture and seasonings to bread; mix well. Stir in eggs. Layer dressing and turkey in buttered casserole; repeat layers until all are used. Pour gravy over top; cover casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Yield: 6 servings.
The minted glazed carrots use honey, butter, mint. And they are served whole, as in the picture. Odd. Get some nice dill, cut them up and serve them in a bowl like we're supposed to in suburbia.
I'm reading Ann Pearlman's The Christmas Cookie Club. Yummy.
