Default Full Confession- I知 Not Fond Of.....

Turkey. I mean Ill eat it- dark meats fine- I enjoy the various sides- to an extent. All those cheese casserole taste identical to me. One year I smuggled in some plain grits-fixed them- turned around and a relative was in tears. Thought I didn’t like hers overcheesed over salted over everything grits. But the last decade plus Ive harbored a terrible secret. I smuggle beef in a thermos for me. One year a nephew nearly ratted me out, but he didn’t. This year I’m smuggling beef brisket. Back when i used to eat the obligatory pumpkin pie- it took half a container of cool whip to make it palatable. I’m designated driver for a 250 mi 1 day round trip so strongest thing I’ll drink is coffee. I’m kind of off sugar-flour etc.

Why couldn’t the Pilgrims/Indians have eaten fried catfish, hush puppies and onion rings. Or Rib Eyes medium with bacon wrapped asparagus.

May take some pulled pork as well.

To those designated “day before or day after Celebrations” Happy Thanksgiving.

I'm a huge fan of turkey done "right" otherwise forget it. I love pumpkin custard and if seasoned/sweetened to enhanced the pumpkin rather than mask it is hard to beat. Good pumpkin custard does not need the crust or the whipped cream. My experience is every traditional Thanksgiving dish can be amazing or just awful.

I'm only there for the dark meat myself. I have a little of all the sides, just to be polite, but if I liked most of that stuff, I'd be making it year round. Onion rings would be great!
When I cook a turkey for just us, my wife eats a little of the white meat, the rest she uses for chili for herself. I'd rather pick the carcass.

Stuffing, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie. That's it. Everything else you can keep.

No sweet potatoes. No cranberries. And no turkey.

Left over white meat for Enchiladas or Chilaquiles...

Sweet potatoes are my favorite provided they never see water or marshmallows, sweet potatoes like ribs should not be boiled. Cranberries should not come from a can... I guess I am a bit of a Thanksgiving food snob.

Didn't realize we had so many commies in our midst.

Thanksgiving dinner is my favorite meal of the year, and I enjoy eating leftovers for most of the weekend. We do not make sweet taters but otherwise like most of the traditional fare: turkey (one in the oven and one in the PBC), stuffing (yes we stuff the bird), mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, broccoli casserole, canned cranberries, rolls, pumpkin pie and chocolate pie.

When eating leftovers I always have the turkey on Beefsteak Rye bread with mayo.

Getting hungry just thinking about it.

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone. And I was just kidding about the commie thing. Those who don't like what I like for Turkey Day are most likely just socialists!

Absolutely Robert, love mole and usually make my own however it's an all day process so I will put one breast in the freezer for mole at a later date when I don't want to be fussing in the kitchen after 3 days of Thanksgiving prep.

Ya while I will eat literally most anything in this world, turkey has gotten mediocre ok for me. This year is just ham. It's kind of like brisket where leftover meat is better than fresh when put in other stuff. But I do enjoy cooking them both. I like the sides, drinking booze and hanging out with crazy and/or sane people .

I myself like my traditional thanksgiving dinner my wife always makes my favorite creamed corn casserole and the best stuffing I've ever had. Turkey is always good if done right. I am also a dark meat man and will leave the white meat for the women. We've tried different things for thanksgiving even a Mexican meal but I did not appreciate it. I think it is the tradition that I crave and the traditional foods that go with the occasion. Have a great one all.

I've only made peanut mole - doesn't take that long. Will be attempting the more difficult ones in the near future.

The Teloloapan mole rojo is some good stuff if you are in a hurry (I'm sure home made is better). Thin it with chicken broth, add some pepitas & voila!
