    Pumpkins are truly the turkeys of the vegetable world. I baked one, and it lasted me two weeks. Good times.

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Ha awesome. Turns out the pumpkins at the store were too small for a main dish so I got a large crazy-looking gourd called Hubbard Squash. I had never seen it before today but apparently the inside flesh is orange and tastes very similar to pumpkin. I'll cut off a thin slice from the bottom so it sits level in the pan for when I bake it, and I think it will do nicely!

    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    A lot of orange things seem to taste similair. Sweet potatoes, squash, pumpkins,even carrots. Not oranges though. But everything else has an orange taste. I wonder what causes that, other than the sugar?

    Well, I do try to get as much locally raised/produced items as I possibly can so that must count for something. The turkey is fresh from a nearby farm, most of the vegetables are too. I make my own bread for the stuffing and rolls and there is almost nothing processed.

    Turkey
    Stuffing made with challah, herbs and vegetables
    Riced potatoes and gravy
    Baked Sweet Potatoes on the half shell
    Roasted Carrots with Thyme
    Sauteed Green Beans
    Cranberry Chutney
    Butter Lettuce w/Champagne vinaigrette
    Honey Oatmeal rolls
    Brandied Apple Pie
    Pumpkin Pie
    Pecan Pie
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    can't wait! yum!
    Cabernet sovignon ftw! So good with a good meal like that.

    Also, sage stuffing? I'm on stuffing duty this year, and that sounds pretty awesome.

    Idk if my blue collar Irish family would appreciate it as much as I would though

    Enjoy!

    Polyface turkey.
    Tastes like freedom.



    But I'm not the one in charge of that. I still have to figure out what I'm going to contribute to thanksgiving. Thinking about doing a tres leches cake. It should travel well and it gets better the longer it sits around anyway.

    I'm a stranger in a strange land, and my friends have seemed to evaporated for these next couple of months. But, I intend to source some tamales, tamales seem important on TG, and mashed potatoes, yukons with cream and butter and skin on.

    excellent topic.... being off on my own with no home or family relatives in sight i believe i'll have to improv something this thanksgiving to get my own little feast of gratitude up and running... possibly even igniting a yearly tradition of very personalized thanks to God, country, founding fathers & native Americans for making this land i so lovingly inhabit what it is today.... sadly I am not much of a chef, my expertise runs about as deep as basic stove use and sometimes vegetarian stir-fry combined with the ever-reliable microwave .. but will I be making a grocery run tomorrow to pick up a few things? you bet... do i have a personal vision for how this holiday should play out involving my own essential foods and accoutrements? you bet.. will i augment it with ice cream and maybe a little fancy beer? you bet.. do I love this country?? you bet
