It's clear and cold this morning. We will have a wintry Thanksgiving tomorrow with snow. I'm finishing up various projects in anticipation of the four day weekend (for me).

TOTD: In terms of foods, what is your favorite dish on Thanksgiving? Favorite leftover meal? What's the most horrifying dish to confront?

My favorite Thanksgiving dish might well be the corn pudding that I am taking tomorrow. We have Thanksgiving with neighbors, and we alternate who hosts; they're the hosts this year.

Favorite leftover: When it's my turn to host, I make a sausage dressing that becomes the bottom layer of a post-holiday casserole, topped with turkey and creamed onions and chestnuts.

Horrifying would be green bean casserole, but none of us make that.

We're hosting thanksgiving this year, well, at least for my parents and siblings. Going to be a pretty limited affair.

My favorite dish is the turkey.

Favorite leftover would be the ubiquitous turkey sandwich.

The most disgusting thing evar is cranberry sauce. Homemade, canned, jarred, whatever. Disgusting.

Good Morning, 52 here and it has been raining hard for over an hour. The good news is, it's not SNOW. One more thing to be Thankful for this year!

I am Blessed to be able to work tonight until 10 PM ...so I will be taking my mother and another family out to dinner on Thursday..then back to work Friday afternoon...my area of responsibility should be fairly quiet, but I am sure I will end up being where all the action is....but I love that kind of stuff. I really enjoy people and putting a smile on a person's face. Every customer is a Blessing and they should be treated that way, even the old bastards that yell at me for no good reason! :p

TOTD: I love the breast. :D

Worst....anything with peas...I don't care for them in most dishes, and could never eat them alone.

Leftovers....Gosh, it's all so good...esp. hot turkey sandwhiches with mashed & gravy...

I have the day off work today, and it is awesome :D

TOTD: I love stuffing, I like open-faced turkey sandwiches as a left over, and I'm not a fan of sweet potatoes, especially when they have marshmellows, etc.

Favorite dish on T-Day is in fact the Green Bean Casserole. Made with fresh green beans and sliced portabellas and fine diced vidalia onions. I make a scratch cream sauce with white wine and season it with fresh ground pepper and a tiny, tiny bit or fresh ground red pepper for flavor. The french fried onions are the only "Canned" ingredients that go into it.

The worst is those gawd awful sweet potato dishes with marshmallows on them.

Favorite leftover is open faced turkey sammiches on fresh crusty bread. :)

As a sub TOTD what kind of pie/desert do you serve?

We go with the traditional Deep Dish Apple pie and a Punkin pie with whipped topping for them what likes it.

WOW....sounds YUMMY.

I am not too sure about your "cream" sauce...I would feel better if I seen it come from a can. :eek:

I think you mean 24 ounces. A typical wine bottle is 750 ml, or 25.4 oz.

I really like stuffing and I really like gravy. I eat a generally lower carb diet most of the time so I look forward to these cultural food-fests.

I'm horrified by sweet potato-anything, I've never had even one nibble of the time-honored green bean thing, and I think cranberry jelly is slimy and repulsive.

This time of year I buy a lot of turkeys and keep them frozen. These turkey deals are very economical for the cook and turkey is more flavorful than chicken in pretty much any dish. ;)

Favorite dish: That's a tough one, because my mom's such a good cook. Probably stuffing, that's really good, and also sweet potato casserole.
Favorite leftover: Probably the smoked turkey. It keeps for a long time, can be used in a multitude of different ways (Just cuts of meat, sandwiches, etc.).

Is it heretical to have ham for Thanksgiving?

We usually buy several turkeys at the great Thanksgiving prices and then have one on Christmas day, since the grandkids get us up at the crack of dawn on Chritmas, anyway. But Thanksgiving is an easy-going day, so we get up later and slap some good old Hoosier ham steaks on the griddle. Sides are GBC, mashed potatoes, green salad, home-made biscuits & honey, with pie to follow.

It's actually more festive than it sounds, since the kids get to decorate.

Later in the afternoon, we go out to the farm for some target practice. We don't hunt, we just like to shoot the place up. :D

This Thanksgiving we are going to a nice restuarant for dinner. My Fiance lost his mother this year and I lost my grandmother last year so we decided on a quiter celebration.

My favorite dish is cream of corn. YUMMY!!

I don't like sweet potato anything. YUCK!

By the way, has anyone every tried a turkey that has been fried???

Yes, fried turkey is an experience. I haven't done it but I've had it. I don't think it compares to a clay pot turkey (my favorite method) but it's tasty. I'm way too paranoid about the fire danger to cook it myself even though we have a huge fire-proof patio to do it on.

Okay, the best part of the whole meal is the Green Bean Casserole and the Sweet Tater Dish.

Anyone who thinks otherwise just ain't got good sense.

The thing to avoid.....Giblet Gravy. Once I found out what 'giblets' are, I quit eatin' it.

And Apple Pie for dessert. Not immediately after the meal. Later, while football is on. A big slab of apple pie with a slice of melted cheddar cheese on it.

Lawzy.

Giblet gravy is disgusting. I thought it might be good. It's jellified offal. And the one time I had it, it had hard boiled eggs on it as well. I was a guest in someone's home, so I had to "eat" it. I still have nightmares about it, and if I trusted that Arkansas had doctors with actual medical degrees I would have asked to have my stomach pumped.

By the way, whenever I get asked my name for some dumb thing or another, I always use the fake name that he gave that Secret Service guy. :D
What would NYC people know about apple pie and cheese? :rolleyes:Not following you. That's the only time I ever saw someone use that disgusting combination and I'm city folk. We could always afford ice cream so I guess that's why the concept is foreign to me.

It's also a southern thing. I've been in cafeterias where they had the pie slices sitting out ready to be served and about half the apple pie slices have a nice slice of cheddar cheese already on them.
