I have to say, I don't like turkey either... I love meat. Every kind of meat. From every kind of animal. I could eat meat all day. All except turkey.

Nevertheless, our Thanksgiving menu:

Turkey
Ham (Yes, we frequently have both...)
Stuffing
Snow peas in some sort of sesame oil sauce (?)
Mashed potatoes
Giant rolls
Cranberries
Squash
...and...some traditional Chinese dishes.
Yes, that's right: Chinese food for Thanksgiving. We always have several Chinese friends over for Thanksgiving, and they bring along a lot of their food as well. It's a multicultural celebration on the most American of holidays.

As long as there is turkey, other foods are welcome to join in. When I was young, we always had pasta and sauce as well.

But then again, we had that at every meal. Kind of like an Italian rule.

From the fruits of my walk I just took we will be adding persimmons and cat tail root to the menu!

trawler full of vegan-feminists? They would throw me off!

That's even worse than being in a room of Barthians!

If you don't have some jalapeno peppers stuffed with cream cheese and onions and then wrapped in bacon and baked...
you have not truly experienced all that there is to be thankful for.

Already back home and ready for a nap! Had a great time, visiting and feasting on turkey, dressing, gravy, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, cranberry salad, green bean casserole and pumpkin pie!

I'll now be on bread and water, without the bread for a week to recover!! LOL
Family time is so blest and wonderful!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you here at PB! Many blessings, all glory to Him who provides our every need!!

Well guys, I have to admit the Prime Rib was really good. Brad is guarding the fridge now, in his sleep!!!:lol: You won't hear any complaints here, Brad cooked the roast and it was excellent! By the way, I only eat dark meat, so buying a turkey breast won't cut it for me.

Do we get credit for loving football? I won't tell you who my team is, but they aren't playing today. We are having apple pie and cherry pie.

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

It would be a real trial if I had to choose between Turkey and Rib Roast; as far as cooking, I much prefer doing the rib roast. Turkeys are temperamental; too much can go wrong.

The standing tradition is I bring two pies to Thanksgiving dinner which is held at my sister's place. Shots of this year's attempt below. Same pies each year (pecan and a blueberry cream cheese/sour cream/white chocolate deal), but they vary only because they seem to turn out different. Sadly, I had to leave off the pies and take food back home as my mother was too under the weather to get over to my sister's. I don't recall the last one she missed. Turned 87 in October.

Early eaters? hmmmph. Our Stuffed Beautiful Turkey just went into the oven. 1/2 hour to first baste! Mmmmm. Real Butter.

Hang on, you're mixing holidays and cinema. Are you guys the people from "A Christmas Story"? (Just be careful about asking for a pellet gun. It's real easy to shoot your eye out, Ralphie!)

What do they bring? Are they Northerners or Southerners? Any jiaozi?

2 bastings into the turkey!! The house just smells of turkey. We just consumed our appetizers. Marriage is great. There is nothing like a nice day home with one's wife, enjoying a great dinner.

Sorry, you don't get credit if you don't like the Cowboys. :smug: BTW, they totally killed Seattle's offensive line.

Went over to my uncle's house for Thanksgiving. He is retired Air Force, and he opened his home to two recruits from basic training at Lackland AFB to celebrate Thanksgiving. If I was in basic training and away from my family, it would be a real blessing to have a complete stranger invite me to his house to celebrate with him and his family.

We had (there was only my wife and one of our sons):
A turkey breast cooked in a rotisserie (which makes the juiciest turkey I've ever had).
Mashed potatos with sour cream and butter with gravy.
Stuffing (Stove Top - we cheat, but we like it)
Green beans
Squash (with brown sugar and butter)
cranberry sauce
Fresh homemade rolls with butter. Have I mentioned how much I like butter? Just like Tavin....
Later we have pumpkin pie and Chocolate pudding pie for dessert.

Thank the Lord for His bounty and taste buds!

I am a die hard Redskin fan, I only root for Dallas when they play the Eagles. Sorry, you will have to count me out. I make the exterminator take off his Cowboys hat before he enters my home. I just can't go there. I am a native Virginian and I would be a trader if I didn't root for my home team!!! Maybe you guys can give us credit for the apple pie. I mean give me credit, Brad doesn't eat apple pie either! He only eats cherry pie.

Sort of late to the thread, being on the left coast and all. After reading it I'm a bit chagrinned. But we're with Brad and Mindy et al. We had prime rib, butternut squash, and green beans.

Does it help if it's mostly homegrown?

Mmm. Another success in the Johnson household. It's time for the horizontal digestion that follows a great meal!

Love to hear y'all's stories. What a great Thanksgiving.
