So, what is everybody else having for thanksgiving dinner?


Recommended Posts

Usual turkey dinner and sides. Have the limit of 10 coming over, though niece in law is pregnant so that makes 10.5? My wife will be making 4 pies, apple, pumpkin, pecan and grape ! I look forward to leftovers as much as the main dinner.

I'm done.....      

Just pulled the 22 pound Turkey out of  our circa 1920’s Glenwood Cook Stove

Apple wood smoked on the Weber -- haven't done this for a couple years -- looking forward to it.

No large gathering this year, we usually have 15 or 20. Not sure what the menu will be but there will be more than we can eat.

Fun, fun. But keep Covid Politics off the Board or otherwise interesting and resourceful Topics will go POOF.

 

Traditional Thanksgiving dinner at my daughters place in NH. Just us and my two daughters and SIL. Daughters will get the turkey stuffed and in oven and a I’ll take over when we arrive. Lots of sides, many weird ones too since my SIL is a strict vegetarian. Store bought bird. I only kept one wild turkey Tom from this fall whole and plucked and that’s destined for brine and smoke later sometime.

Never been a Turkey fan...since the virus is still around, the family isn't coming to visit on Thanksgiving...so, we're having lasagna....that's what I like.

 

I do think there's going to be a lot of turkeys around after the holiday.

Just a turkey breast for the two of us.  And oyster casserole, cornbread dressing, green-bean casserole with the little brown onion things on top, Cranberry-apple casserole.  And a store bought pecan pie.  Store-bought because we tried for years to fix one as good as the store bought and couldn't do it...Geo

This year, no family Thanksgiving.

 

My surviving daughter has COVID. She should be ok, but her husband’s parents (while my age) are quite old in practical terms and at risk due to numerous health issues. Thanksgiving is the only holiday I really like (love to do the cooking; no presents or other commercialism; I had brought sharptail, hun and sage grouse from MT to add to the turkey), so I am bummed, but it’s not worth someone’s life.  🙁

 

So, it’s just gonna be my partner, Nancy, and me.  
 

We’ll be starting with deer sticks and PA Dutch deer ring baloney with an adult beverage.  Then, doing a small turkey that I shot at a traditional over-the-log live turkey rifle shoot.  PA Dutch potato filling (doing the usual stuffing is too much work for just two people).  PA Dutch dried corn. Candied carrots.  Sweet potatoes for Nancy - not my thing.  Store bought cranberry sauce (the usual homemade cranberry relish is again too much work for just two people).  Topped off with a cherry crumb pie.  😁😁😁

Copes dried 🌽... everything else is just a side dish!!!

Honestly not sure what we're doing. Not flying home for the holidays as we usually do. Heartbreaking, but necessary. We're invited over to my buddy's ranch. They're setting tables outside for six or seven of us. Don't even know if we'll go. If not, we have a turkey breast in the freezer. We'll see.

Yep!  Can you get it where you are, Don?  If not, PM me an address and I’ll mail you some.

Usually I do a big spread but this year it has been toned down greatly so only one bird and the fixings cooking it here and bringing it to the Parents house.

 

Strange times for sure hope you all have a great day and stay safe

Made the decision to cancel the already toned-down get together for Thursday. Too many young ones in contact with too many other young ones. We're going to do a brisket, a couple sides and a couple pies and make deliveries to folks. 

 

For ourselves, we bought a smallish turkey breast that I'll roast and do some mashed potatoes, cornbread stuffing and corn casserole. The traditional stuff that's largely a nod to parents and grandparents that are no longer with us.

Main course will be deep dish Wild Turkey and Chanterelle Pot Pie.  Last weekend I found  over two pounds of chants; a pound of them per pie and wild turkey from this past spring.  Amazing year for chants; found them from early June through mid November.  Below is a pound of chants which I cooked first in butter and saved juice to whisk into roux with a broth I made from herbs, onions, leeks, celery and turkey. I made two pies; one for Floyd who won't be seeing his children this Thanksgiving and one for my household.  We won't be seeing ours, either.  Probably also make scalloped oysters.  Here is the pie stuffing:  parsnips, Vidalia onion, carrots, turkey and one pound of rough cut chanterelles stirred into a roux.   I made more than enough to stuff pies and had the surplus for lunch Friday and Wednesday when I made each pie.  Pie is in the freezer for next Thursday.  Gil

Just me and the wife up in the mountain house.

 

Got a wild turkey poult, plucked, and it will be roasted with dressing (the bread kind, didn't know there was a difference). Mashed potatoes, green bean (from the garden) casserole, roles (or maybe it's buns...is there a difference there too? 🙂 ), and apple pie for dessert. 

 

Traditional, yes. Boring, maybe. But although we eat a lot of wild turkey throughout the year, the T-day dinner is once a year and I like it.
