I don't eat much turkey, but, at this time of year, "WinCo Foods" usually have turkeys at very good prices, if you buy a certain amount of food, so I will have some if it thaws by then, if not, the next day, or....

Will have no cranberries.  Don't care for them unless fresh, but even them, a few go a long ways, so I don't buy them because a lot of the package goes bad before I eat them.

Bought some pumpkin muffins and a pumpkin pie at WinCo, but I will probably have to add more spices to the pie, as store pies are always too mild for my taste.

Felaine, I'm sorry you have a poor thanksgiving.  I like Randy's idea of the Thanksgiving fairies sending you some turkey money.

I tried several kinds of cat food last year, and they were edible, but I didn't like the pieces of bone in them.  Do cat's like the bone pieces, or is it that the manufacturers are too cheap to grind the bone finer, or what?

My sister and I will be joining my father for a Thanksgiving dinner at his retirement community--a first! I can imagine what they'll have!

If I'm not satisfied, I'm going to fix my own T-giving meal later. I just don't have freezer room for leftover turkey. It may have to wait 'til christmas.

Felaine, at least you have a sense of humor. Give me (us) your address and perhaps the Thanksgiving fairy will send you some turkey money.

I'm truly sorry to hear that Felaine. Like Daniel, I wish I were closer.

I am at Laura and Larry's home enjoying the forest and its inhabitants. Michelle and her family will be with her partner's family. Laurie, Zac and 4 month old Brooklyn will be here, as will some other of Larry's family. 

Our menu is a traditional one with turkey stuffed with sausage dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, a green salad, cranberry sauce made with oranges. Larry will make two pumpkins pies. 

There will probably be 15 for dinner, although that could change. 

One thanksgiving morning several years ago, I woke up to an empty house. Laura and Larry were both gone. With no one around, I started the turkey and finished the rest of the menu. When everything was ready to eat, as if planned, in came the entire family who had been called out in the night to fight a house fire.  All the adults in this family participate in the volunteer fire district, they never know when a call will come.

Pat, George Carlin was so funny! He gave me a whole new vocabulary, coming out of my Victorian Age. 

Bertold, I love the bacon bit and Al Murray.

Well, I have a couple of cans of Friskies shredded turkey & giblets in gravy, but I hate to deprive the cats.

Comment by Daniel W on November 24, 2014 at 10:30pm

Felaine wish you were closer, I'd bring some over.

We will have:

Green Bean Casserole

Home made bread rolls.

Corn Bread Dressing.

Butternut Squash "Pumpkin" Pie.

I am vegetarian, so I am not responsible for the Turkey.  Ning hasn't decided yet if he will have that.

This is for Ning anyway.  I would be OK with bean burritos.

I need to go to the food bank, or we'll be having cat food for no-thanks-giving.  A yam/red sweet potato, brown rice, and some kind of ground turkey is all I can hope for. If they're giving out any meat at all.  (They always give me a box of corn flakes, which I have hated since I was a kid.  The cardboard has more flavor  I hand it back.)

F*ck you SO much, GOP!

Who here is going to be making Thanksgiving Dinner? And if so, what are you making? 

I'm doing most of it (which I actually enjoy). Will brine the turkey on Wednesday, and do a lot of other prep work Wednesday evening - blanching the green beans for the casserole, doing prep work with the ingredients for the dressing, and making a pumpkin cheesecake.

P.S. Carl, you inspired me regarding the leftover turkey when you mentioned a burrito. There's a recipe for Tinga de Pollo (shredded chicken cooked in a tomato and chipotle chile sauce, and served on tortillas or tostadas). Why not turkey instead of chicken?
