Happy Thanksgiving Coldie to you & yours & God Bless!
going to Ma to see my daughter and family.
Thank you so much.....God Bless... do you have a bird ready?
Going to the Old Myakka (FL) Community Thanksgiving just like every year.. We should have about 200+- people show up. Everything from Gator to Swamp Cabbage. It’s always a great time.. I cooked for 3 days getting ready... A lot of the old timers are missing but we will say a prayer for them and then get on with our meal.
My sister been thawing turkey since yesterday
Will probably be 20 people here this year
Turkey and corn bread dressing, corn pudding and green beans as sides and a cherry pie with ice cream as desert. I prefer pumpkin pie with whipped cream but the wife prefers cherry.
Home made Cranberry Mead for me and sweet tea for her.
Happy Thanksgiving to you, too! I pre-baked two pumpkin pies and made two frozen peanut butter pies. The stuffing is done and awaiting the bird for tomorrow. The turkey breast is done. Cole slaw is in the fridge. All that is left for me to do tomorrow is the mac and cheese, green bean casserole, potatoes, the bird, and rolls. I wish all FREEPERS a joyful, relaxing, filling and blessed Thanksgiving!
I am going to TWO dinners , both sets of friends.
The first one we have a tradition. I bring the frozen Marie Callander Turtle Pie (Yes, it IS Divine!!!).
Then I talk about how long it took me to make it, and especially how perfectly I packaged it and got it into the pie tin with the plastic cover and of course, the box all sealed up. My friends go along complimenting me on how ‘professional and just like the store bought ones it looks!” We do this tradition every time! ha!
The evening get together is at my Pupster’s boyfriend’s house where several other of her doggie friends and their human companions will also be there/. All doggies will get Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy.The people will too. And of course, I will bring the Frozen Marie Callander pie!
Normally Thanksgiving is at my house with a group of 10-15. This year my son and his wife invited us to her side of the family’s celebration. This was a total blessing from God. My Mom has been in the hospital since Monday, so I will be at the hospital. The rest of my group will be at the family gathering.
Same as last year, I have none. Rather than dine on left over pizza, I might try to find a restaurant open that's serving a traditional Thanksgiving menu..that would be nice.
Wait just a minute....”frozen peanut butter pies???” do you have a recipe...**eye roll**
Family and a good friend are coming over to our place. We’ll have the fire blazing and lots of good snacks before the main event at 4 PM. My wife and I were doing a lot of food prep today while listening to the real Thanksgiving from Family Life. Tomorrow we’ll put the smoked turkey in the oven, do a little more prep, feast, then spend the remainder of the evening in a tryptothan induced stupor.
I go “traditional” and always try something “new” as well. From the cook’s taster tests, it is creamy and isn’t too sweet. Not sure of the **eye roll** either you think it is nasty or really are interested?
Find a truck stop that has a restaurant they will have all the turkey and traditional sides you can think of!
Wish you lived near us....we would love to have FReepers to dinner!! We are heading up to NC tomorrow to relatives. I plan on cooking my own dinner on Friday...turkey, gravy, hot sausage dressing, pineapple dressing, banana trifle for dessert. Happy Thanksgiving to all FReeper friends
I’ve heard from two people today that they go to Golden Corral for Thanksgiving. Just an idea. So sorry you are alone, HT!
God Bless and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! :)
I will either be going to my Uncles, and his family, or staying home and eating Pinto Beans all day.
I’m leaning towards staying home. I’m not thrilled with that part of my family. Such is life. :)
Excellent idea, I never thought about them. There's one within a mile from me and I know they have great food. Thanks and happy Thanksgiving to you also.......
