Mike, that rooster looks like me EVERY DAMN DAY!  (Except I'm a chicken, not a rooster.)

Randall, I actually don't have that big an oven. What I do have, and was given to me as a gift a few yeas ago is an oil free electric turkey fryer. It's true that it is oil free, but a fryer it's definitely not. It cooks using infra red. When I got it, I first thought it was nothing but a gimmick.I was wrong. Now, I really like it! Set it outside the kitchen door, on the back porch, and even in 30 degree weather, it does a great job cooking a turkey, whole chicken, beef or pork roasts, and a bar-b-que shoulder.  And, it has a smoker attachment. The last couple of years (and this year also) the turkey was brined the night before, and hickory smoked for dinner. Since there's only two of us for dinner, that frees up the oven for one acorn squash, a small dish of dressing, a few homemade rolls, and small dish of homemade green bean casserole (no Campbell's soup or canned onion rings, please). Pumpkin cheese cake is made the night before.

Pat, you must have a large oven to accommodate everything that must be baked for a Thanksgiving meal. Personally, I can't taste any difference in oven baked or microwaved. I grow my own winter squash-- acorn, butternut, and delicata. Yum!

With all this discussion of cooking winter squash, I'll thrown in my 2¢. I prefer acorn squash, and I do steam them, face down, in the oven at 350 F, for about 30 minutes. Then, I actually roast them for another 30 minutes in the 350 F oven. Before I roast the halves, I put in the cavity where the seeds were, 1 tbs butter, 1 tbs real maple syrup, 1 tbs water, and lightly salt and pepper the surface. These are a must at my Thanksgiving table.

Spud, you asked about growing sweet potatoes in a pot. Did you see my photo in "godless in the garden" group? If sw. pots. get that large, you'd need a huge container! But it should work. Lots of vines, however.

Sweet 'taters make great pies. I prefer the taste over pumpkin.

Mike that looks like me at the end of the week.

Daniel, you raise better chickens than I do. My rooster has had a hard time.

Deidre, that's sort of what I did, kind of.  I just baked a butternut squash from my garden.  Sliced the round part from the long part, sliced each in half. placed face down on parchment paper on baking sheet, and baked 375 for 1 hour.  I think 90 minutes might have been better, but the flesh scooped out ok, and pureed nicely in the food processor.  I made a pie but haven't tasted it yet.

 

I read if they are baked in a casserole dish with 1/2 inch or so of water, they steam and cook faster. Might try that next time.

Evolution of chickens, sort of.  Tyranochicken Rex?  Chickzilla?

 

Pic is from the link.  Apparently, it's all good breeding.
