Just returned from a 8 hour food fest at my brother's home with 23 people in attendance. Appy's, drinks, wines, 25# turkey and too many sides to list. Since I grazed all afternoon, my dinner plate have very little on it, but it did have my favorite dark meat, giblet stuffing, gourmet yams (nephew is a chef) and gravy. Maybe 7-8 oz max. Small slice of carrot cake for dessert. No bloated feeling and no turkey coma afterward.

Hope everyone had a good day.

i had dinner with my family at marie callanders. for twenty dollars a plate i was not impressed. i had the ham , which was a very strange texture, almost like a ham loaf. mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes that were not done. green beans and carrots that were half raw as well. salad and corn bread, the corn bread, great as always. for dessert pumpkin pit with whipped something? on it. the pie made my meal. goggled the recipe so will try it myself. already have been making the corn bread for years. the price just floors me. but when i said someone else needed to do it, this is what they came up with.

the great granddaughters were a pleasure so they were certainly worth the time i spent with them. the food not so much.

That is all the rage now, just barley warmed veggies. I hate it. I want my veggies either raw or cooked, not in between. I read some such nonsense that it preserves the vitamins. Go figure, lazy finds an excuse.

We had our Thanksgiving dinner at about 3:30 p.m. so at dinnertime we had dessert Pumpkin cheesecake. The dinner was roast turkey with stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, and rolls.

Deep fried turkey, baked ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, cornbread dressing, giblet gravey, cranberry sauce, hot rolls, pumpkin and pecan pies.

This was my first fried turkey and it turned out well, I can't believe it took less than one hour.
