I like thighs and wings.

Roosty, do you make cranberry sauce from scratch with fresh berries? It's very easy and super delish! Now you've got me thinking about the big day - Turkey Day! I'm pretty sure I'll be having Thanksgiving Dinner at my house this year. I'll make turkey and bread stuffing from scratch and homemade cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes and veggies and homemade pumpkin and blueberry pies, maybe a pecan pie, too. But I need more people to feed - there are only 4 of us.

One time, to fill more of the chairs at my table for Thanksgiving, I contacted nearby Valparaiso University and arranged for some foreign students to join us. My extra guests that year were two girls from China and a boy from Saudia Arabia. My family is Polish and my sister's husband is German. We had our own little United Nations in my dining room! My centerpiece was a spaghetti squash with flags from each country stuck in it. It was a hoot! That was 6 years ago. What a great memory!

Fun thread, roosty!

That makes two of us. I swear I'm going to make that next week. I gotta PM her though and get advice on it.

If I were the main cook at Thanksgiving, I think people would need to buy their own gravestones before hand LOL. I'm not that talented at cooking, but always love learning how to make new things and they usually turn out pretty well.

I'll bet you're better than you give yourself credit for, Quert! Cooking a turkey these days is pretty foolproof. Instructions are right on the bag.

I might try cooking one this year, I'm not sure. I'm skeptical about my cooking skills LOL.

Does the bag give instructions, or does the turkey give instructions?

"Preheat oven to 450..

Lay down on the pan and cover yourself in butter.."

Yeah ... Except for lunch meat, I'm not big on turkey either ... For me, Thanksgiving is a time to sample lots of great side dishes and if there's room ... I'll do the turkey and/or ham.

I suppose it is time for me to start working on my pathetic look so that maybe someone will take pity on me and invite me over for Thanksgiving dinner. Otherwise I will probably be stuck eating my usual Thanksgiving dinner...Alaskan Jumbo Red King Crab.

Spinach salad
Mashed potatoes
Cranberry sauce
Green bean cassarole
Hot yeast rolls
Assorted other dishes that folks bring.

Time for a nap while everyone else watches football.

^^^ Yay!!! Exactly!!!
A nice Chateaubriand, rack of lamb, stuffed pork loin, wild duck, goose, or game, frutti di mare - for me this is a festive food.
A ham or turkey on every holiday? not me!
