Stuffing and gravy
Mincemeat pie
Cranberries
Scalloped oysters
Nora's Turkey joints
Alethea's chocolates
Mashed yellow turnip
Russian teacakes
Roast beast and Yorkshire pudding

The list goes on and on.
Now that I am an old diabetic it takes me weeks to fit in all the wonderful things I used to eat in a day

I've never heard of "turkey joints". I can't imagine any meat on them, lol.

I was thinking, people are getting away from the "traditional turkey" around here. So I think I'm going to roast a turkey this year. Haven't done one in about four years. I usually do a hen and/or ham. But I miss roast turkey. Just about everbody's frying them now or doing something different.

At Christmas Eve my wife needs her chicken and dumplings and New years I make french toast with her uncles Pannetone.I am not a big fan of either but go along with it.

I don't have any must haves that I can think of.

Thanksgiving isn't the same without homemade mac and cheese for my husband (a southern boy) and stuffing and whole cranberry sauce for me.

Christmas? We are low key on that day when it comes to food, but if I don't make my homemade cinnamon rolls for the morning, I wouldn't hear the end of it.

Roasted turkey!

I just can't get into the frying thing. My sister came for thanksgiving last year and brought a turkey and fryer. I couldn't stand the thought of not having that roasted turkey smell in the house, so I baked a turkey breast to use for leftovers. I also have to have pan gravy and you can't get that with a fried turkey!

Stuffing made with Bell's
HOMEMADE ROLLS
PIE! Homemade

Lets see...
Stuffing, my mom makes the best ever! Then there is baked corn, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy, turkey, My Salmon Pinwheels, relish tray, a veggies tray, a platter of spinach dip in a bread bowl with lots of bread for dipping. Then for dessert there is always at least 3 different kinds of pies, usually pumpkin, cherry, and apple, a cake, and chocolates. That's the Thanksgiving I grew up with.

Since I have been married, I have been going to the inlaws. There thanksgiving is good too, but not like my Mom's.

Christmas, is extra special because it is my birthday. So we have a big party on christmas eve, and have all sorts of appys, and a big birthday cake for me.

The next day we have some of the leftover appys, a ham, mashed potatoes, dinner rolls, veggies, and what ever anyone else brings.

Last year, my whole family came to my house, we had a blast. We did a prime rib roast, ham, mashed potatoes, and a whole lot of sides.

We really live for the holidays. It is the best time of the year, and my family are foodies, so it has to be big.

Turkey joints are a kind of candy!

They have kind of a cult following in this area.

Google: Nora's Turkey Joints and you will see what I am talking about.
