Alton Brown’s “turkey triangle” has changed our Thanksgiving forever.

Not the best but my most memorable Thanksgiving was in the jungle in Viet Nam northwest of Siagon. Turkey and dressing and all the trimmings. They flew in helicopter loads of food for us.

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.

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”).

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.

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.

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.

They flew in helicopter loads of food for us.
Buddy of mine was on field maneuvers Christmas in Germany. Freezing their butts off. word cam down that they were getting hot Turkey meals flown in. Sure enough, a helicopter with a steaming container hung under it showed up. When the container was set down the all rushed up to see little cans of Turkey C-rations floating in hot water.
