What are your culinary plans for Thanksgiving *USA thread*



For those of us getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving in 2 days...

What are you eating???

Anyone making/eating something out-of-the-ordinary?

In my house, we were thinking of making tamales. (Alas, it's not going to work out)

Originally my kids were going to be with their mom so we were just going to make a perníl (roast pork loin). Now they're going to be with us, so I'm going to look for a turkey breast instead of a whole turkey, then maybe a baked ziti instead of the traditional lasagna, and sweet potato fries instead of cheesy baked potatoes.

shrug

What about y'all?

WHAT'S ON THE MENU???

We already had Thanksgiving this past Saturday. (My niece came home - she's in retail management, so she'll be working Thanksgiving weekend.) We had the traditional stuff at my sister's - turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce.

So on the actual day, I will probably work on a sewing project and eat grilled cheese. lol

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

We're ordering all kinds of stuff from The Cheesecake Factory.

They have everything.

Expensive for 11 people (including kids) but a few times a year we try to splurge.

She's OK. Just a bit of a festering wound care issue.

You're here!!! woot!

I was out buying the turkey yesterday.

Last year was my first attempt at seasoning/cooking the bird, and by all accounts, it was a GOOD turkey.
This year, I bought fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme & sage) which I will sprinkle on top, and I bought a pack of "soup veggies" (carrot, turnip, celery, herbs) that I will chop up and stuff inside to add flavor and soak up the excess fluids - those will get thrown away and then pan-made stuffing will go inside once the bird is cooked.

My mother, The Queen of the family kept this year's Thanksgiving at a head-count of 7..Normally it's close to 20 and she always invites friends and feeds everybody...This year was a little different...We had the usual Turkey, Ham, Gravies, yams (that I don't eat), Potato Salad (that I don't eat), Stuffing, Collards/Greenbeans, Ham-rice, bread, Pound cake, Sweet tater pie (that I don't eat)...I wanted some Ribs..I said to myself "My Lawd, where are My Ribs?"....We are all blessed to have family & friends...

Didn't do the mole de guajolotes, since I've never eaten it i needed to do a trial run first and haven't had the time now that's its cooled down enough to turn on the oven.


So did the basics brined turkey, cornbread dressing, green beans with almonds, orange & cranberry sauce, baked Mac & cheese, roast beef with carrots & purple potatoes, greens & tomato salad, homemade sweet potato pie & raspberry cheesecake.


My oven hates me right now, it had a 2 month vacation, now its on overdrive.

Well, I ended up having two Thanksgivings this year. Another one of my sisters called to invite us after she heard that my other sister had Thanksgiving on the previous Saturday.

We had the traditional fare - and then came the best part. I asked if they were going to do anything with their turkey carcass - and they said they'd probably just throw it away. eek

Guess who's eating some very yummy turkey soup for lunch today? This girl right here.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.
