Just the "regular" traditional food.. Turkey, Mashed potatoes, candied sweet potatoes, dressing, green bean casserole, corn, brussel sprouts (for my husband!)rolls and sweet tea. Dessert this year is cherry pie and pumpkin bread pudding. Christmas is a crap shoot, but Turkey day stays traditional.(Even though I don't eat turkey myself) What about you? I like hearing what other people fix and eat.

I am a fabulous cook but, there are two dishes that I have made for Thanksgiving for years that I get asked for time and time again - One is a yam casserole with a streusel topping and the other is fresh cranberry compote.
The yam casserole is basically, yams, butter, eggs, spices, orange peel, sugar and rum extract all whipped together and topped with a mixture of brown sugar, flour, pecans and butter. It is one of those dishes that always tastes better the next day after the flavors have had time to meld.
The compote is stewed fresh cranberries, cooked and mashed with spices, chopped oranges, chopped apples, and chopped pecans.

We usually stay traditional but we add broccoli casserole to the menu. This year I'm thinking about making a bread pudding for breakfast. We always take a long walk while the turkey cooks. It's one of the traditions that I am looking to hand down to my kids. That and making the bird dance to whatever pop song is popular at the time. This year I'm torn between Gangnam Style and Call Me Maybe. It may be a game time decision.

What a relief. I don't care much for turkey anyways. Too dry.

Hey spoken lies.. you need to come to our house... not only is our turkey not dry, we jack it up with Cajun seasoning and red pepper.. (the Louisiana coming out in me) lol Lots of folks there deep fry the turkey, but most of the people I know that do it... they are drinking and lots of things catch on fire. I'm afraid to try it. lol

We are very traditional at Thanksgiving. In addition to roasting a turkey, we smoke one. For us, fresh cranberries are a must. They are so easy and so good. I haven't noticed anyone mentioning cole slaw...it is a must have at Thanksgiving at our house.
Curious about what dressing consists of in these parts. Our is always cubed French bread with celery, onions, stock and poultry seasoning. To be honest I love the stuffing so much, I have never varied the recipe to include anything else.
Bottom line everything must be homemade, with enough leftovers so that I don't have to cook for next day and with enough turkey for sandwichs for the next three days. Yum!

Stuffing- we do it a little different. I haven't heard of many doing this. We boil the giblets (neck, heart, kidney, and whatever else comes stuffed in the turkeys cavity) until they are cooked through. Then we use the "stock" it creates to moisten the stuffing. We also chop up the meat from said items and put that in the stuffing. It is wonderful. We use breadcrumbs, celery, carrot, onion, and various herbs for the stuffing as well.

I usually smoke one at Thanksgiving too. I get the munchies and literally eat all day! Yeah man!

"how white man" Indians, not "welcome to 7-11" Indians... after we eat I take all of their stuff and send then packing...
