what about reservations at a restaurant?

who says thanksgiving has to be turkey anyway? the settlers most probably ate fish and squash, which were easy for them to get.

I made a mashed sweet potato casserole with bourbon and pecans once that had the plain janes running for the hills....
But I liked it.
More for me!

tradationhere is thanksgiving dinner at my house. it is boring for me as they always want the same old stuff. no challenge for the cook. last year i did make the sweet potatoe cassorle i found. they loved it. i do make what they want and just make one more "funky" vegatable. last year bacon and parm. cheese brussel sprouts. dil loved them so much i made again for her bday dinner . tradation is a hard thing to buck babesorry spell check is not working.

Well, AAB, you, or someone else, has already mentioned the "funky" ones I would have added to the list. It's hard to imagine asparagus being on the "funky list" I'd say the funkiest one mentioned is the edamame - - not because it IS funky - just funky at Thanksgiving! LOL And make sure you get the kind IN the shells - that should send him screaming into the night!

OR - you could just have tacos that night!
