A FEW RECIPES WOULDN'T BE BAD, EITHER!......
Ping For fun! This could be made into biodiesel!...........After dinner.........
Who is that? Looks familiar.........
This may be the earliest live thread ever. Not that there's anything wrong with it.
Kramer on Seinfeld...that pic is too funny!
Rockwell was a gift to this country.
I've heard so called art experts criticize his work but I think there is no artist that ever understood the American Spirit as well as he did.
Thanks for starting this thread, Badger! I'm looking for a good low-carb yam recipe...and one for cheesecake, as well....
I found that picture somewhere here, and kept it. I have it on my desktop right now. Great picture. :)
Sweet Potato Biscuits
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
4 tablespoons solid shortening
1 cup cooked sweet potatoes, mashed
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening. Add mashed potatoes. Add enough milk to make firm dough but not too stiff. Roll out on floured cutting board, then cut with biscuit cutter. Place in a greased biscuit pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until browned.
The irony in that illustration is the smile on the soldiers face while he is doing something so reviled by every soldier, peeling potatoes. I think he'd sit there and peel them all day.
A true, heartfelt Thanksgiving. :)
Was he ever. You can safely ignore the so-called "art experts" - especially when you consider what sort of "art" they tend to value. There is a wealth of genuine experience conveyed in this one painting: the pride of a wife and mother, the sacrifice of a soldier, the joy of homecoming, the warmth and safety of a home, the humor and irony of finding simple pleasure in what was once a tiresome task. God Bless Norman Rockwell.
A low carb yam recipe? LOL! Good luck.... :-)
This is my breadstick dough cornucopia, filled with mini-vegetables.
A harvest bounty!
Revolutionary tip for those who don't like to dry out the breast before the thighs are done:
When readying the turkey in the morning, put it breast down onto a large bag of ice, so the legs and thighs warm up a bit while the breast remains cool. Put a ziploc bag of ice in the cavity against the inside of the breast.
Hey, HG - this thread needs some food!
Since you mentioned cheesecake, I'll add a little aside which isn't what you asked for ...
Cheap cheesecake thrill ... Kraft's Philadelphia Brand makes a ready-made cheesecake filling now, which can be found in the same dairy section with the regular cream cheese. Comes in a plastic tub. It's not bad for ready-made - you're supposed to just put it in a graham cracker crust and then garnish however you like.
Dreyer's Ice Cream has a "special limited edition" Pumpkin Ice Cream that they stock for a few weeks this time of year and I really like it. I mixed some with the Philly cheesecake filling and it makes a very easy, quick, luscious Pumpkin Cheesecake.
I was afk yesterday. Playing royal dress up.
Thanks for this thread
Sweet Potato Biscuits - never heard of them.
OK - first I'll steal from STARWISE's post on the Saddam Live Thread:
"... I think I'm going to try this for Thanksgiving .. saw it made on the tube, and it was so easy to make and looked yummy:
1/3 cup sugar
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
2 tablespoons Kahula (optional)
Place sugar in aluminum loaf pan. Hold loaf pan over low heat, moving pan from side to side until sugar is completely melted and golden brown. Swirl to coat sides and bottom evenly with the sugar. Set aside.
Beat eggs and cream cheese well. Add sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk and beat until blended. Beat in vanilla. Add optional Kahlua if desired.
Pour mixture into aluminum loaf pan and place in a larger pan containing 1" hot water. Bake at 350 degrees 1 hour, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool; then turn over on a serving plate.

I swear to God, I thought turkeys could fly.
Whoops, click here
Funny stuff. Thanks for the laugh.
No video card on this puter - is that Les Nessman and the non-flying turkeys, perchance?
Yes it is, ending with Mr Carlson and his, "As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly"
I love Les with his play by play of the turkeys hitting the ground. Classic TV.
