Happy Thanksgiving, Crazy Canuks!

Doing it twice this weekend. Saturday with the siblings and my mother. Traditional turkey and the fixin's. Then Monday, my kids are coming over and we are going to do up a leg of lamb, as we will have had our fill of foul by then...

My nice teeth are in a glass As for the spelling "uuuuuuuuuuuu" I give them to you so you don't run out. (I think that spanner I wanted is in the boot of the car)

I don't understand. Please explain.

The fowl at your mum's place is foul?






Runs and hides.

MadCook, why is taxlady sailing too close to the wind? I don't get it either.

Happy Thanksgiving Rock, sounds like you are not going to want to see turkey for a while after this weekend!

I don't get that--I roast 8-10 turkeys / year (some with stuffing and all the fixings, other times I just roast the turkey as if it were a chicken). What is it about turkey that makes it an "only on holidays" menu item?

I roast turkey often too. Its not just a holiday meal here. I meant that after having two in a weekend he's going to be a bit sick of it.

Turkey is associated with Thanksgiving because supposedly that's what the pilgrims ate with the locals.
And Thanksgiving being a holiday, I think that that is why a lot of people serve it on holidays or for special occasions.
Plus it's not exactly a throw together meal. Otherwise in the dinner thread you'd be reading about Costco's rotisserie turkey

Ooh, rotisserie turkey. I'd try that.

I don't do a full turkey dinner during the year. I have turkey as a protein a few times but that's it.

To me, Thanksgiving dinner is a big deal. I love preparing it. Having that meal on other occasions during the year would lessen the special status.
