So, what is everybody else having for thanksgiving dinner?


Recommended Posts

WI Outdoor Nut

Normally we go to inlaws, and my parents, eat way to much, sometimes drink too much, but always a good time.  Parents have a number of health issues and it has been decided to hold off, and can say I will really miss it.  But I do think it is the prudent thing to do.  So my wife and I were planning on making dinner on our own.  So we bought all the traditional stuff we need.  Then to find out my mother in law is going to make everything anyway, and drop it off.  Anyone need a 15# turkey?

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.

My bride is cooking mine and my son’s favorite dishes.

Sloppy Joe’s, Mac n Cheese, and Root Beer!

 

Root Bber floats for desert!

 

Then, I’m going to smoke Hog blackstrap the next day.

 

Yummy!

Don’t know if the oyster pie is a southern thang or not. That’s the one thing I look forward to each thanksgiving and Christmas.   I could eat just that and as desert as well

Would love to have an oyster pie, or oyster casserole, recipe.  Please share if you have one you think is great!

Reach out to SelbyLowndes and GLS.  One or the both of them posted a very traditional recipe for it last year.  Both of those gentlemen are from the part of the country where folks know how to make that dish.

 

 

 

I found it in my Bookmarks--this is the recipe one of them posted and said was very good and authentic.

Great!  Thanks!  I just ordered my oysters, and I'll pick them up at the oyster farm tomorrow!  I'm hoping this will be a new tradition around our Thanksgiving table.  If the gang isn't wild about them, I will eat it all myself!  When I was a kid here, and other northern places I fished, we were able to pick our own oysters.  Those days are pretty much gone.  But I love them critters.

Nothing. I have to work. Usually they spring for some turkey or brisket, but this year the turds on day shift all cried and demanded fajitas. Fajitas. On Thanksgiving. This is Texas, they can have fajitas every day of the week. And I hate fajitas. So I guess I'll eat some tuna or something else stanky and leave the can in the trash for them to sniff in the morning when they're all hungover.

here you go. Again this is a recipe that is only in is mind( for the life of me I don't understand why people just don't write this stuff down).

Amounts depends on size of pie.

In a buttered casserole dish, add crush  saltines mixed with 1-2 pieces of toast cut up; spread some of this in the bottom of dish, add oysters ( more the better), do with butter, salt and pepper; continue layers of saltine, toast and oysters, atleast 3 layers ending with just the crushed saltines. You can add a few drops of hot sauce to the layers if you like. Then pour half and half milk over it so it gets juicy. H&H milk gets soaked up. Let it set in fridge for a few hours or overnight.

Bake 45min on 400.  If the casserole dish is really big may need to bake a little longer.

 

hope this works.  This is probably my most favorite dish . I wish it was made more often.

My wife bought some Swedish thing to cook meat at the table.  It’s called a Raclette (think of a George Foreman grill without a top), then dipped in cheese.  Kind of a Fondu style dinner.  She wants to try something different, so why not.  There will be venison, supplied by the boys this year, on that grill for sure.


I’m so glad my wife decided to give something new a try.  Thanksgiving “Brunch” turned out fantastic.  It was a much more drawn out experience than cooking all day and then 15 minutes later everyone is done eating and gone off to do other things.

 

I can see us doing this again.

I'll be there for leftovers and dessert.

Thanks to y’all’s inspiration, yesterday I popped over to the oyster farm. Casserole is in the oven. I’ll report back on the reviews. image.thumb.jpeg.7201eb4180934e3dc0922fe845671bb7.jpeg

That has got to be the neatest stove I have seen.  If only it could tell the stories of the meals it has cooked over the years.
