Maybe I'll get a thigh for myself, since I much prefer dark meat. I would love to do a whole turkey, but I end up with mostly white meat and Shrek is not eating as much as he used to, so I end up eating something I don't care for so it won't go to waste.

Janet, sounds like you have everything covered! Good tips there.

We have a small Thanksgiving dinner here, usually only 4 adults and a child. There is always the turkey and all the traditional sides, though. Bread stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, roasted sweet potatoes, green beans with pearl onions and almonds, cranberry/orange sauce, biscuits, and some kind of pie.

The only thing I do ahead of time is buy some extra turkey parts and make a make-ahead gravy....it seems there is never enough gravy with a small 12 lb or so turkey, to accommodate all the leftovers that everyone wants.

Its still up in the air for me. Not sure if I will make it home or if my wife and youngest will come here. Luckily if I am stuck here the hotel room has an oven.

My Plan?

To call my SIL and ask if we could show up bearing a pumpkin pie.

We'll be on our way home from Charleston (I think) after Anniversary Sunday November 23rd. If we leave Charleston on Monday, driving 925 miles to home, we'll be arriving late on Tuesday. If SIL and her hubby weren't planning on "doing" Thanksgiving, I'll pick up a couple of turkey cutlets and do something with them. At least that way we'd be guaranteed turkey. Last year they went ahead and had their bird a few weeks before T-day, when we were on vacay last year, and we ended up with breaded pork chops on Thanksgiving. Sacrilegious!

I lost my stuffing recipe. It was simple made in the pan recipe. I did not stuffed the bird. Anybody care to share a TNT stuffing recipe. I'd really appreciate.

Right now I know one thing, there will be a turkey going in the smoker!

I asked my family if they'd be OK with a turkey roulade in place of a whole turkey for Thanksgiving. The idea was not well received so we're back to the traditional turkey.

I put the crust right up the full side instead of just on the bottom. The ginger snap crust is a favorite of the whole family except me. I don't like cheesecake. Or ginger snaps for that matter either. I wonder how a ginger snap crust would be for a pumpkin pie?
