A man after my own heart. If I have oysters, I'd NEVER put them in stuffing. I'd make oyster stew!

Thanksgiving Thursday with the in-law side of the family will be Norman Rockwell all the way. Roast Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. Wines in crystal goblets and fine china from serving vessels down to place settings.

Thanksgiving Friday with Texas side of the family will center around smoked baby back ribs. Paper plates and iced-tea.

The original settlers most probably ate fish and squash, not all of the stuff that has become Tradition.

I'm the same way about oyster stew. If I have fresh oysters, I eat them "as is" or steamed.

I can eat them from the shell with chopsticks almost as fast as I can with a fork.

Thanks. I've been sick for a few weeks and am on another round of antibiotic. Fever and chills all week and now, thanks to the new antibiotic, tummy-crummies. I have missed several days of work. I'm sick of getting sick at holidays....or at all, to be honest. But especially at holidays.

Thanks for the well-wishes. Time and orange juice. And horrific antibiotic.

I'm hoping to hear how the other non-turkey meals went. Our duck turned out wonderful though.

My Thanksgiving Meatloaf was great, perfect porcini flavor, I used a little half and half and an egg for moisture. The porcini gravy I made was started with a blonde roux, porcini powder and beef stock made from marrow bones simmered with onions and celery. Homemade cranberry sauce with half the sugar, perfect sweetness but a little bitter aftertaste. The dressing, made with turkey stock, was the best and very moist. I had green beans with smoked sea salt. The dishes are done and only one meals worth of leftovers.
