    Yes, here is another Holiday thread, but I want to know what do you, for those who celebrate it, and your family eat on Thanksgiving?

    We have the obvious traditions at my house: fried turkey (16 pounds!) honey baked ham, cranberry sauce, fruit salad consisting of mayo apples and raisens, candied yams :roll: , sweet potato, apple, and pecan pie, green beans, okra, squash, and just about any kind of casserole you can think of.

    [Edit] Woohoo! I get to eat today!!![Endedit]

    Whatever my mother decides to cook. Always at least 1 turkey, a chicken, generally, cranberry sauce, multiple dressings, all that traditional stuff. Sometimes the people who come bring their own stuff. Also, way way way too many pies for the people to eat.

    *cough*

    Sometimes I wonder just what we'd be eating if it was a bunch of Frenchmen at the table, rather than Pilgrims...

    Anyways, I'd have some turkey, and some single-malt Scotch Wiskey. The actual procurement of said bottle is on my to-do list for tomorrow. I'll let it age in my freezer for 3 days.

    Not to get all mushy like your Aunt Betty's stuffing-the food may be great, but it's being with the family that makes it worthwhile.

    What is Thanksgiving? Is it a semi-religious event?

    No, just an American tradition. It's the celebration of the meal that the pilgrims ate a year after coming to America. It was one of the few times in our colonial days that colonists and natives didn't shoot at each other.

    Is that an apple and a pumpkin pie, or is that a pie with 1 part apple one part pumpkin? Either way it all sounds delish!

    I hate Thanksgiving. I have to go in the freezing cold wearing short sleeves and fairly tight pants and dance around for a good 3 hours or so at the football game (and I like color guard, why?) -- but I don't even like football. I then get forced to wear a dress -- heh I got out of it this year because we're going straight from the football game to my Aunt's house (where I sit for several hours by myself wriitng poetry). AND I'm allergic to turkey. But I like mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce :) And it's ok, I guess. I mean, as much as I grumble about it I won't go to college in California because I know I'd miss it. Go figure.

    My wife makes the most divine sweet potato concoction. I'm convinced that there's more butter than yam in it. It's got a top crust made of pecans and liberal doses of brown sugar throughout. Guaranteed to harden your arteries and send you into a digestive stupor all by its lonesome. Yum . . .

    Yum yum yum, I just made half of tomorrow's Thanksgiving feast. :D I made the chicken and dressing (sage is the perfect touch), the brocolli casserole, and a sweet potato casserole (YUMMY!) Now all that is left is cooking the turkey tomorrow and making the fruit salad.
