...Memory/Tradition and Family Recipe.
BEER. Keep it cold and keep it coming!
Alton Brown’s “turkey triangle” has changed our Thanksgiving forever.
Seconds for pumpkin pie while watching college football. Least favorite: Dems vs. Conservatives dinner table debate.
Lasagna with turkey on the side. Turkey should have italian sausage stuffing. That was the holiday dinner of choice growing up in the Bronx.
Then Pumpkin pie for desert. Though some prefered cannoli. (Leave the gun...take the cannoli)
The turkey dressing is my favorite part. I use the recipe handed down from my great grandmother.
Some of my grandchildren are now using that recipe.
Incredible, glad you made it back alive.
Mine is kida like yours. My First Thankgiving in the United States Navy was onboard USS Independence CV-62 in 1980 enroute to the N/ Arabian Sea during the Iran Hostage Crisis. Waited in the Chow Line for 2 1/2 HOURS. The Resultant “food” was MARGINAL at Best(The Indy was ALWAYS a CRAPPY “Feeder”).
Root vegetables (potatoes, turnips, parsnips) boiled to death and mashed.
November 23, 1984. I was at my Fiance’s house in Trumbull CT. Flutie threw the Hail Mary Pass and then my Fiance’s father gave me The Hunt for Red October as an early Christmas present.
my momma’s gravy... it is the best...
Favorite Thanksgiving memory was preparing a complete Tyhanksgiving dinner with all the trimming while deployed to Riyadh KSA.
We were sitting around watching AFN when somebody started talking about missing Thanksgiving. We all joined in and pretty soon money was being thrown into a hat and we bought all the “stuff” at the Commissary that was set up for the Riyadh personnel.
Cooked the whole thing by myself, served 12 people. It worked out so well we did it again for Christmas dinner.
This year it’ll be a Thanksgiving will fall on the second night of Chanukah.
This won’t happen again for another 79,043 years.
Happy Thanksgivukkah to all!
Thanksgiving at my grandparents farm with all my aunts bustling around the kitchen, cooking. Granny had an old stove with a woodbox on one end ... very small oven area, but the food that she managed to make ..... still can smell it baking and the kitchen was so nice and warm.
Since it is just going to be my wife and me, we are having a Costco Kirkland brand smoked turkey breast, baked sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, rolls, green beans for her, and a Costco apple pie for me and a pumpkin pie for her.
Friday and Saturday will be leftovers.
Having all my alcoholic Detroit Lions fans have car trouble at least 100 miles away at noon - priceless.
