14? WOW! That's 14 very lucky people. Sounds like it's going to a fantastic dinner. Hope you enjoy every minute of it :)

I can't wait for the day to get here already. It's been requested that I make again this year Goodweeds pie crusts, "square pumpkin pie" just like last year. I can't say no to that. Both boys really enjoyed helping Mom make it when I couldn't. It's tradition now. I'm thankful just to be home with all of them.

Have a great holiday Kades :)

Munky.

Aww, (((PF))). Owie!! I was going to bring up the thing about "mashed asparagus" on your menu.
Now I get it.

I'd love to come to your house Ms, and sample your wonderful cooking.....but it seems plans have changed now.
Older son's plans with the "outlaws" fell through, so he and his brood will be coming here, or hubby and I will be going there. I hope we will be going there, as he does the most delicious turkey I've ever tasted.
He injects it with Cajun marinade, and cooks it on the charcoal Webber.
He's done deep fried turkeys but nothing beats his Cajun Webber Turkey.
He has a special metal "collar" that sits on top of the Webber, and the lid goes on top of that, so he can do a 20 lb. turkey with that setup. It's really bar none, the best turkey ever!

I'm just fine Kades, thank you! Even got some Mod work done. I'm not as befuddled by pain meds and hypnotics as I thought I might be. I'm practicing talking with the dentures in...I sound funny!

Steamed past the tender stage and pureed, to accomodate my new dentures I got today. Otherwise, we would be having a whole turkey and the asparagus would be crisp tender.

Thanksgiving was in October for Canadians.

Last year I had two Thanksgivings. One with the in-laws in October. I did the turkey and my b-i-l complained that the breast wasn't dry enough!

Then I had Thanksgiving in November with my sister in a vegetarian restaurant! It was tasty, but I later realized that the fake turkey was probably made with soy and I'm not supposed to have more than teensy amounts of soy.

No big Thanksgiving tradition in my family. My parents were Scandinavian immigrants and totally unfamiliar with it. My mum did a good meal: turkey with a meat loaf stuffing, potatoes, gravy, veg, cranberry sauce, rolls. No pumpkin pie, because my entire family detests it, but there was some sort of tasty dessert. Sweet potatoes/ yams also not part of my mother's repertoire.

Thank you for replying.

My son has to work 12 hours on Thanksgiving. By the time he gets off work at 6pm gets his children from their mothers and shows up it will probably be 7:30. So sense I am getting laid off on the 30th, we are just postponing until a later date.
On Thanksgiving day I will probably have my own recipe of (was chicken) Turkey and rice, Smells like Thanksgiving. Veggies with.

But on the postponed day:

Roast Turkey
Stuffed Ham
Stuffing regular/vegetarian (oldest granddaugher)
Gravy
Mashed russet potatoes
Sweet Potato Casserole with nut crumb topping
Green Beans with lemon pepper
Corn
Cranberry Sauce
Lion House Rolls

Pumpkin and Apple Crunch Pies
