    For me, it's all about really good gravy.

    Everything else can be fixed with the really good gravy.

    I usually sit myself in front of the TV for football overload and either order a pizza or cook a steak. I don't live near my family and I don't enjoy most of the traditional Thanksgiving foods, so this is what I really enjoy doing.

    This year, though, I'll be attending a vegan Thanksgiving at a friend's house. Should be an experience.

    I don't like turkey, stuffing or sweet potatoes, so the usual thanksgiving foods are my nightmare feast.

    I eat the mashed potatoes, gravy and fresh vegetables from the vegetable tray. Occasionally, my family will be nice and make me ham...

    Mashed potato with gravy.

    As to the turkey... I like the stuffing more than the meat. But I'll take white meat with gravy if you leave off the cranberry sauce.

    Speaking of which, who likes cranberry sauce? I found that it never goes well with the gravy.

    I like cranberry sauce then again their's very few things I don't like. I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to food.

    I make everything from scratch for this holiday. Get out the silver, china, crystal, linen, buy some cut flowers.

    The menu stays pretty much the same.

    Hot olive cheese balls

    Turkey and cranberry sauce
    Bread, onion sage dressing
    Mashed potatoes and gravy
    Cheese/carrot casserole
    Relishes including home-canned pickles
    Brussels sprouts, sometimes green beans
    Wild rice casserole for my vegetarian SIL
    Twenty-four hour fruit salad with cooked dressing
    Salad composee of romaine with blue cheese, red pears, pomegranite seeds, croutons
    Oatmeal clover leaf rolls

    Pumpkin pie and rhubarb or apple pie with whipped cream

    I've been making turkey for decades and tried every method known to man. The best? Brine it first. Stuff and put in oven at 450 degrees for half an hour, then turn oven down to 325 degrees to finish. It'll be good and juicy.

    This year one of the local grocery stores has a deal, buy a ham and get the turkey free so I may do that.
