    Default Thanksgiving Food

    This thread is not about being thankful, it is about FOOD. Which I guess is actually something we all should be thankful for.

    Thanksgiving is maybe my favorite holiday. This year I'm hosting an 'orphan' thanksgiving... my little brother is going to be in town and then 6+ random other people and my housemate. I just went to the grocery store and I'm starting to get ridiculously excited about what we will be eating.

    My housemate is doing turkey.
    For the veg folk I'm doing a lentil walnut stuffed pumpkin.

    And gravy of course.

    other foods I will make:
    Roasted mixed veggies (potatoes, cauliflower, carrots, etc) with herbs and possibly dried cranberries
    Green beans with butter and garlic
    Roast spaghetti squash
    Cranberry sauce
    Biscuits
    Pumpkin pie

    Guests are bringing assorted pies, stuffing, salad, mashed potatoes and maybe some more pie...?


    So... what are YOU making?
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Idk yet! It might end up being just me and my boyfriend unless we get invited somewhere in the next few days. So I might have to cook, uh oh. I'll probably roast a chicken, make some mashed potatoes, maybe try to make a pie? Scary.

    My husband usually cooks Thanksgiving dinner, but he has to work and doesn't want to cook and I don't blame him. I'm not really a holiday person, so I'm not going to go crazy.

    Turkey, gravy
    Mashed potatoes
    Green bean casserole
    Stove Top stuffing
    Sister Schubert's yeast rolls
    Pumpkin pie from the grocery store bakery, whipped cream or Cool Whip


    And our sons' birthdays are at the end of November so there will be, as requested, chocolate cake (made from a mix) with very little (store bought) icing and vanilla ice cream.

    Ever thought about what makes it a Thanksgiving food? My thoughts were that the ingredients had to all be native to the Americas, but I'd like to see what others' thoughts are.

    Yeah no idea. I guess I think of the most traditional being turkey, cornbread, gravy, cranberries, and pumpkin pie, kind of New England-y. But I'm not doing cornbread this year even though I love it. I was getting kind of out of hand. Probably any sort of autumn harvest food is appropriate though.

    Several years we had it with my parents' Indian (subcontinent, not American) neighbors and that was sooooooooo good, half 'traditional' thanksgiving food and then some like paneer and other delicious south asian foods. Somehow it all goes together amazingly.



    Keep these food lists comin' folks
