Thanksgiving Meal

Postby wacocowboy » Tue Nov 14, 2017 11:16 pm

With Thanksgiving next week I was curious how do most people cook their Turkey? I love it fried and smoked is good too but don’t care for that crap that comes out of the oven.

What sides do you like? I love the green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, and deviled eggs. Not a fan of stuffing, cranberry, or that gravy.

Got to love those good yeast rolls with butter and honey.

What is the best pie to finish it off? Pecan, coconut cream, banana cream, key lime, butterscotch, buttermilk or lemon meringue are my favorite but I will eat sweet potato or pumpkin pie with whip cream.

My grandma makes me my own tray of stuffing. Love that stuff. As for pie, I go with chocolate or coconut

Great minds think alike you forgot the armadillo eggs along with the stuffed jalapeños, that might be a Texas thing.

Do they grow enough turkeys for every family to get one?

A green bean casserole is kind of a family tradition here. Having left over turkey stuffing with gravy the next day is
one of the best things ever, and anyone that has ever served dressing with raisins in it needs to be flogged.

Not big on store bought turkey, rather have ham or a smoked venison ham. This year we're having smoked prime rib of beef. Sweet tater casserole with melted marshmallows on top is the vegetable of choice here. Dessert is what makes Thanksgiving for me, a Kahlua chocolate chip pudding cake is #1, and pumpkin pie a close second.

As a youngster I lived just West of Worthington, and went to school there. They had an annual turkey parade. Farmers had hundreds of birds that they somehow got to go down the streets. As youngsters would, we got pea shooters and would do everything we could to get the birds to revolt!

Last time I was there I never saw the billboard outside of town notifying they were the turkey capital, so I thought maybe someplace outdid them.

Turkey is not served here as the wife's chicken and dressing remains number one. We will also serve ham. Funny, but faux mashed potatoes are requested by more than half this year and the rest is whatever people bring in.
