Will be smoking a turkey on Joe to take to a larger family gathering this year. I'm getting off easy for 2013.

There will be 8 of us; 2 sisters and spouses, one nephew with wife and 19 month old son. The dinner will be in the Community House, with other members in attendance as well. I'm doing one turkey, a potato casserole and some canned store bought cranberrry sauce. Don't know the rest of the menu, but I do seem to remember no one has mentioned dessert yet. I am sure that will not be overlooked.

Since it's non-filter, I'm not sure it matters

We are hosting Thanksgiving this year. 16-20 for dinner. Sit down dinner. Between the two of us, we have enough good dishes, Cloth napkins and silverware.

Dx's kitchen is smaller size so it will be a hub-bub. I know we will make mash potatoes the day before and reheat in a crock pot. It takes a long time just to peel potatoes and these turned out really good last year. Make ahead gravy and add turkey drippings to finish when re heating.

Everyone brings a dish so there is not so much for any one person to do. It will be fun.

I actually found carton's of Swanson's Turkey broth at Wal-mart. Will be picking some up for gravy through the year.

I didn't know they make such a thing as turkey broth. Will have to look for that around here.

It's been around for several years but only at Thanksgiving.

Sprout, her hubby, and youngens are planning on being here. My eldest sister will also be here. Menu:
1. oven roasted turkey, with sage-bread stuffing
2. smashed spuds
3. turkey gravy
4. mashed rutabaga (my all time favorite root veggie)
5. green beans (not the casserole)
6. relish tray with cranberry sauce, stuffed celery sticks, black and green 7. olives
8. My Mom's famous, and loved Sea-Breeze Salad
9, apple pie (courtesy of Sprout)
10. pumpkin pie
11. Chantilly Cream
12. and finally, dirty -sock soup for the kids (I tease them all the time that they're gonna get dirty-sock soup. It's our own little fun joke. I've even started writing a light-hearted novel of the same name.
13. milk, and juices (not in the same glass, silly.)

Aftger the turkey comes out of the oven, I'll be sharing the oysters with Sprout, or maybe munchkin 1 will get half of mine. She's four now, and old enough to share in the special turkey bits with her grandpa. I love those kids. But then, how could you not?

It's snowing out right now, so I need to get to work on my flooded basement issue. And then, it's off to the chili cookoff to serve up, and see how my two entries do this year. It's been 4 years now since I've won a trophy. But my hot entry has in it both Buht-jalokia, and Naga-viper chilies, plus the usual mix. We'll see how the chili heads handle it. I like it.
