Of course! I love company

I don't eat meat, so turkey is never on my table this time of year
HUH? I know what a Caesar Salad & Pumpkin Cheesecake are- Asparagus rings a bell too! LOL.....
I'll be going to spend Thanksgiving with my family, which I haven't done in THIRTY YEARS. (!) Trying to reconnect with them after all the wasted years of boozing/drugging. They're going to deep fry a Turkey, & I want to see how it's done. A little nervous, but can't wait....
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

tonight we're having tuna melts ... i would just order chinese, but they're closed on tuesdays. i'm in the middle of a big baking project, so dinner is hit or miss at my place these days - mr k is ok with it though, he thinks cast off snickerdoodles and alittle burnt milk dud peanut butter cookies with milk are a terrific supper.

(i'm from the south, so sometimes i call it dinner. and sometimes i call it supper. supper's a southern thang, and is generally deep fried or at least has bacon grease, apple vinegar, and sugar)

Well now, the pumpkin pie and the cornbread for stuffing are in the oven.... I guess it's on!

Maybe I should make the cranberry sauce tonight too, just to reduce the stuff I have to do tomorrow

I hope everyone has a splendid Thanksgiving!

Have my pumpkin cheesecake in the oven & will start on my sausage stuffing this PM. Tonight, just going to have some pasta carbonara for dinner & salad, but really cut the portion size on the pasta.

Have a great holiday everyone.

VC -- Boy are you getting an early start!! I slept in this morning. Did a little prep yesterday. Went to the fridge this morning to take out the bird, and wouldn't you know it, the plastic had a leak in it and there was blood all over. Messy way to start the day. Oh well. BTW, the end of today will mark 3 weeks! I can hardly believe it. I really didn't think I would. Some tough days, but in retrospect, easier than I imagined it.

Menu: turkey, sausage stuffing, giblet gravy, oven roasted broccoli, and pumpkin cheesecake. Not gonna bother with any potatoes this year.

Ssirus: You are probably done with your dinner by now. How did it turn out? Hope you are enjoying your "American" holiday in Wales. Are you a Wales native, or did you actually come from the States?

That's fantastic! I'm so happy for you! Keep it up!

My turkey's in the oven... This year I'm going for thanksgiving dinner at DINNER TIME instead of at 2 in the afternoon. Instead of feeling sick to my stomach from not eating or stuffed because I gave in and ate lunch, I am actually going to be hungry and ready to eat when the bird hits the table.

I got about an hour to fool around before I need to start cooking the giblets for gravy and peeling potatoes and whatnot.

Everybody getting up at 2am to start xmas shopping?

No way Jose.

I wonder the percentage of alcoholics that do go Black Friday shopping. I am betting it is low.

Hahahaha, it's funny you should say that! I <i>intend</i> to go every year... but I have never gone. Not once!

This is gonna be the year! Maybe!

Even in prior years when I was drinking the day before, there would be no way I would fight the crowds!! Insanity! And certainly not this year... Nowadays do most of my shopping online. Not many good shopping areas here on the central OR coast. Online is so much easier and convenient.

Believe, lucky & Steve - So are you guys going out for an after dinner jog? HeHe. It's raining again here, so I have a good excuse, but I think I will hit the treadmill for a bit while the bird is in the oven. Good excuse to have that 2nd piece of cheesecake tonight!

Goat - You always make such great dinners. How did you learn to cook? As for me, pretty much self taught by cookbooks. My mom wasn't much of a cook. My dad, however, was a baker by trade. Always had lots of good fresh baked goods in the house. It's amazing I didn't turn into the size of a house!
