anyhows, excellent dinners!

here's the way me & my luved ones dine on holidays~
Christmas- turkey/here & there also a ham
Easter sunday- ham or prime-rib roast
Thanksgiving- a turkey
new yrs.- pork roast/kraut/taters/etcetera

as 4 other foods, we prefer those cliche items- canned corn/peas, gravy, potato, giblet gravies, crescents, 'punkin pie, nuts/chocolates, this gelatin dessert, slaw, that jive. i've gotten them interested in other foods, though-

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

The edited list:

Our dinner will be Sunday night and we will be having:
turkey (brined and stuffed with traditional bread stuffing)
yummy gravy
potatoes - chunked up, tossed with EVOO and seasonings and oven roasted
asparagus - some steamed, some blanched then layered with proscuitto and mozza and baked
spaghetti squash (baked and tossed with EVOO and oregano and tomatoes)
Spinach Salad - hard boiled egg, mozza, diced bacon
pumpkin pie (MIL is providing this as it makes me gag)
apple pie
whipped cream or coffee ice cream as a topper
buns and butter
sparkly juice or italian sodas

I think thats it.

Traditional thanksgiving foods are only the beginning of our meal as seems to be with others here. In addition to those, my mom always includes whatever favorite dish everyone has at the moment, which means we have entirely too much food and to actually enjoy the meal I have to leave many of them off my plate. I wish we could stick to a basic traditional meal, but it seems tradition with us is too much which leads to too much left over as well.

It is Thanksgiving that I seem to remember my family through food...always. It's the only holiday that I really want a particular menu...the same one that has been served in our family for decades.

Roasted Turkey
Dressing...the best dressing ever made of cornbread and other breads...sage, etc.
Dumplings with giblets
Cream peas
Whipped potatoes
Sweet potato casserole with pineapple
This salad called....Thanksgiving salad made with carrots, pineapple and cream cheese
Whole cranberry sauce
Olives, pickles, and stuffed celery and stuffed dates
Potato Rolls
Sweet Tea

Pecan pie, Apple pie, Pumpkin pie

It's carb-hell, but I love it. Extra insulin needed all-around. After Thanksgiving is awesome too. I become the Bubba Gump of Turkey. Turkey casserole, turkey salad, turkey stew, etc.

I have to say that Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. The other holidays have no set menu at our house! Now I cannot wait for November!

Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!

On behalf of Canada, MsM, I thank you!

Like Alix, I needed to change into my sweatpants after dinner, but everyone thoroughly enjoyed it (even me, which often doesn't happen when I have been cooking all day.

Today, the actual holiday, I plan to relax and reflect upon all that I am thankful for. One that is very near the top of the list is having my DC family in my life!
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffiene-free and loving it!

What a day it must be at your home. Being who you are, your meal will be the best you can make it. Your family must be salivating right now. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration.

I will be at my daughter's house, in Maryland, when our Thanksgiving rolls around. I will get to play with my grandaughter, and be my goofy self with the adults. I can't hardly wait.
