You don't want to see Dingleberry Pie or Bearded Clam Dip on the menu.

Thanks, I printed a couple out to share with my mother. Her sense of humor is as warped as mine. And yours.

Happy Thanksgiving!

That's great stuff! Thanks for the ping.

I was particularly intrigued by that cold, jellied bean, mushrooms, and pimiento salad.

Try this link for some good real recipes. Stainlessbanner puts up these threads quite often before the good eating holidays (All holidays are good eating holidays!)

One year at my mother-in-law's house we had "monochrome" Thanksgiving dinner.

She made "prune stuffing" which came out black as midnight and she kept the turkey tented the entire cooking time so the bird looked white, like it had been boiled. The giblet gravy (not my favorite to begin with) was like clear broth with turkey parts floating in it. The green beans could have added some color, but she made a mushroom based cream sauce (I am allergic to mushrooms and she knows it) and smothered the veggies in it.

A truly memorable meal.

There are many things "jellied" in that compilation. I was intrigued by the Salmon mold and the Liver pate - which looked like liver bundt cake.

Y'all be sure to give this "stuffing" recipe a try. Comes from an old family recipe!!! Happy Thanksgiving to all you "FREEPERS"
4 eggs
4 cups bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 envelope Lipton's onion soup
1 cup uncooked popcorn
pinch of salt
sage or other seasonings to taste

Beat eggs and mix all other ingredients. Stuff turkey. Bake at 375
for three hours. When the three hours are up, get the hell out of
the kitchen because that stuffing is going to blow that turkey's ass
right out of the oven.

I have never had a good t-giving meal in my life. I generally hate the holiday b/c i really don't like roast turkey or cranberry sauce or bad mashed potatoes. As a kid, we used to go over my grandmother's house and she was a notoriously bad cook. The fun of it was that we could all laugh about the meal the next day.

My Mom took over for a few years and pseudo-rescued the holiday for me as she is a tremendous cook and I would help her so I'd have some control over what was being served.

Then I got married. Then I moved 1200 miles from home. UGH. Now I have my mother-in-law's T-giving and it reminds of my grandmother's cooking. Unfortunately my wife doesn't think the comparisons are warranted. To top it all off, we have to listen to crappy music at the table. I usually have one helping of food and then go watch football.

Then to top it all off, I have four days off but I can't leave my house as the Bayou Classic is in town and every one shuts down for the weekend. Last year we did a friday pub crawl uptown which was a blast. But generally, I hate T-giving.

Do you think my wife would be angry if I slipped two cups of uncooked popcorn into the stuffing or the bird? :)

My favorite bad recipe is coconut-covered SPAM balls (you have to swallow them fast- if you just wound them, they can be dangerous...)

James Lileks has a whole book of "regrettable food" from the 1950's- look on AMAZON for it.

That bean/mushroom molded salad has got to be the most disgusting thing I've ever seen.

As for me, we're sticking with the bird, sweet potato souffle, corn souffle, stuffing, relish tray, garlic mashed potatoes, turkey gravey, cranberry fool, classic green bean casserole, sparkling cider, and pumpkin pie and apple pie!

Actually, I have a lot to be thankful for. I am not sure why I need to enjoy bad turkey, obnoxious family members and the Bayou Classic to give thanks.

When I was a little kid I got it into my head that I hated turkey. I would eat chicken, but I hated turkey. So, instead of turkey we would have "big chicken". This scam worked until I was five and Mom was taking the bird out of the fridge. As she put it on the counter I asked if that was what we were eating tomorrow. She said, yes, it is our "big chicken." "Then why does it say "Turkey" on the label?" I asked. Mom and Dad had no idea that I could read that well and their jaws kinda dropped and they broke out in hysterical laughter.

Needless to say, we still have "big chicken" every Thanksgiving.

"IMHO anything with cranberries, I just do not get those little evil berries.

How about if they're processed into a jelly that may be sliced? Or the juice? Then you wouldn't have to fret with the actual berries.

..just a quick pitch for one of our state's fine products!

That hideous stuff my Massachusetts mother-in-law calls stuffing. Wet, yellow goo the consistency of pudding. Yuck. Come to think of it, the whole dinner is crappy. Turkey, yellow goo, potatoes, appetizers (they're pretty good) and one or two desserts.

At my mom's (North Georgia mountain girl), we have one of everything. Lots of southern soul food. No yellow goo either! Pan dressing that I could eat all year round. I still haven't learned to make it.
