Hey Folks, I see alot of people here in Foo section love to cook, I like to cook to as a hobby.

I am going to cook something for my family this Thanksgiving and Christmas, last year for Thanksgiving I made a Chili dish.

A large pizza? I see you must be having company! Will you be serving a fine beer with that?

Since there are only two of us, I will be making a turkey breast with a puree of herb stuffed under the skin and roasted.

Also:

Southern style dressing with gravy
Mashed potatoes
Green beans
Pecan pie
Cranberry sauce

Free range Turkey, whole wheat stuffing with kalamata and pine nuts (my own recipe), cranberry relish, green beans, brussel sprouts, pecan pie, pumpkin pie.

I'm bringing pea salad to the pot luck dinner at my grandmother's.

KingTermite 11-09-09 11:22 AM

Wife and I have just had too much stuff these last few months...just want it to be quiet.

Probably just a small/simple Turkey day meal between the two of us. Probably turkey, mashed taters (maybe sweet potatoes), green bean casserole maybe. Hope likes to bake...she'll probably make brownies or a pie or something.

They treat you with all that good food, and you'd give them something as gross and nasty as pea salad? Shame on you!! :p:innocent:

I made it for the Independence Day pot luck at work this past July, and it was the most popular dish.

We're having three (me, my wife, and my sister) for dinner (her b/f will join after), but my sister doesn't like turkey. Two meats for three people is silly, so I think she will have to man up. Other than that, no idea.

jsharr 11-09-09 04:05 PM

a sacrifice.

Unfortunately no company :( But pizza is pretty good as a leftover.

I don't do alcoholic beverages, but chocolate milk works :)

I'm sensing an extremely non-vegetarian oriented meal theme.

pgoat 11-10-09 09:10 AM

we're having company again, so I am making Nekohime's graham ******* crust tiramisu once more, which people loved and have been asking for all year!:love:

pgoat 11-10-09 09:11 AM

oh, and I just decided I am going back to being a full-on vegetarian again, although we haven't done a turkey for T-day in ages.

SourDieseL 11-10-09 09:58 AM

my family is huge and we always get together with relatives each year so it's a full blown cook out. I'm asian so we like to celebrate the international flag during our feast out. Every thanksgiving we house maybe 20-30 family and friends with a wide array of food selections.

So far we've planned the following:
Starters:
Sushi platter, cheese station (manchego, brie, sharp cheddar), sun dried tomato hummus dip, white honey truffle oil spread, shrimp cocktail plate, fresh buff mozz w/tomato and basil, and a selection of chips, pita chips, and blue chips.

The meal:
Baked Turkey, Fried Turkey, Smoked Ham, Prime Rib, Garlic Mashed Potatos, Baked Sweet Potatos, Bacon Stuffing, Green Bean Casserole, White Rice, Fried Rice, Shrimp with Lobster Sauce, Spaghetti bolognese, baked ziti w/ricotta and meat sauce, filet of fish cakes in a lemon butter reduction, chicken cutlet and eggplant stacks w/fresh mozz inbetween, chicken/beef/cheese empanadas, rotisserie chicken slices, mac and cheese w/ham and peas crumb top burnt, and probably a large salad bar with cold toppings (olives, corn, mushrooms, broccoli, etc).

Thanksgiving is a big deal in my family, it's the time to get my WHOLE family together. My dad has 3 brothers and 3 sisters, my mother has 2 brothers and 1 sister. People arrive between 12-2, dinner starts at 2 and goes until 10pm. Around 6pm is the staple family touch football game and the wiffle ball game amongst cousins. We set up 3 computers in the living room with internet, xbox 360 / wii in my old room (live on my own in manhattan), and blu-ray/dvd selection in the living room.

It's a feast!

All right, who let the Canadians in here with their "WE have Thanksgiving in October, we're SO morally superior to those dirty people south of the border!" talk!
