Believe me if I didn't like the old big bird and the traditional things we do each year, I'd be on a slow boat to somewhere else

Love everything about ours. It's holiday comfort food for me. Some of the dishes have been served for generations, which connects me to my past family. I love passing down dishes to my children who ask for the recipes, not out of obligation but out of love for them.

Most of the time it's the same menu, with a few variations on some of the dishes. I particularly like to "play" with cranberry and sweet potato dishes. The rest is tried-and-true family favorites. Mostly it's kind of "if it ain't broke, don't break it" kind of menu.

It's a menu of warm fuzzies that makes everyone in our house feel good!

Well, gobo - although your Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday in October, here in the States it's the 4th Thursday in November. Funny - none of our Canadian members have never had a problem understanding our American Thanksgiving discussions before ... and that includes some of our Moderators and Administrators.

Am I happy with what is served, DEADLY SUSHI? Sure! I'm the cook!!! I learned long ago - the best way to avoid a bad meal at your in-laws is to host the party and cook the meal yourself!

I have no problems at all.
I was just messing around.
That's why I put the :D.

Why do you think I have a problem with it?

I, like most folks, voted for the "Traditional" stuff, although normally, I'm a very adventurous eater and cook.

Now, my step-father, he would rather go to Denny's or somewhere and buy a meal, as he hates leftovers. This year, my parent's aren't even doing anything other than a small meal for themselves.
