Carmelized pearl onions...one of my favorite sides with turkey. I use the recipe in The Joy of Cooking.

Could be. I've only ever seen it as a pork roast but lamb could work.

Seeing as how we already had Thanksgiving in Canada, we did maple-apple cider glazed ham, baked potatoes (from the garden), steamed kale, squash, and homemade ice cream. We're brining a turkey this weekend, but we eat turkey about 1x/month. I hope y'all enjoy T'giving in the US. If you are looking for ideas of what to make/serve, there might be some ideas in the CDN T'giving threads.

CWS4322 your mention of the potatoes, from the garden, made me think of Thanksgiving when I was little. We lived on a farm and one of the big "thanks" related events at dinner was to go around the table and name all of the things that were grown at home or made at home. In those days most of the things were home grown except the turkey and that came from the farm down the road.

Oven roasted turkey
Bread Stuffing with giblets
Turkey liver pate'
Mashed Potatoes
Mashed Rutabeggas with a touch of butter and brown sugar
Baked Sweet Potatoes
Sea-Breeze salad
Cranberry sauce
Black olives
Celery Sticks with cream cheese-onion dip, or peanut butter and raisins
Shredded carrot salad with raisins and walnuts
Pumpkin pie
Apple pie
Milk or Egg Nog

I'd love to make a maple-wood smoked turkey with maple glaze, but DW insists on oven roasted for the holiday.

Last year was the first time I made myself Thanksgiving dinner. I'll probably do the same thing this year, roast a leg and a breast and the usual, mashed taters, B sprouts or green beans, stuffing... Which reminds me, I better pick up the turkey parts early this year, as they can become non-existent around here come Thanksgiving. Must be a lot of folks cooking small meals and not whole birds.

It bothers me that the crappy parts of the turkey most don't want (necks, wings, etc) are packaged and sold for stock-making and cost more per pound than a whole turkey.

I know whatcha mean. I used to raise chickens, and there was very little that went to waste. I'd love to get all of the usable giblets in a bird. You can bet I'd be using them.

I also hate that healthy food costs more than pre-processed garbage that haas all kinds of things I don't want in my food. I think we've lost something as a society, when we lost so many family farms. I just don't see that our "modern" society gives us more pleasure than did the lifestyle of 1940's through early 1970's. But that's a different topic.
