We were sitting around planning our Thanksgiving meal the other day. Really looking forward to cooking and of course eating :drool:

We picked up a bone-in ham and a small, 12lb turkey yesterday morning. So our meal looks like:
Roasted turkey
Ham
Homemade stuffing
Homemade mashed potatoes
Homemade collard greens or green bean casserole (maybe)
Store bought pumpkin and pecan pies

Anyone else looking forward to Turkey day? Any special recipes in the works?

This may be blasphemy, but I love stuffing, and I've had lots of different kinds, at friends and families, and expensive restaurants...and none of them beat stove top mixed with spicy sausage.

Nah. Stove top is great and we really enjoy it here. This year I have a bit of a wild hair to make homemade stuffing since I have only done that a handful of times in my life. Plus it makes coordinating all the dishes on the big day a bit easier. I've never thought of adding extras to the stove top mix though. Cool.

Yep. Stove top can be a meal if you treat it like ramen and add meat and veggies.

Also, stove top mixed in meatloaf is the BEST!!!

In both cases stove top is better than any other stuffing mix I've used.

Oh. And thanksgiving... Thankfully I am going to a friend's house. :bigsmile:

But if I do it at home...

Stove Top.
Lemon crispy chicken boobies. (Homemade)
Sweet taters
Super buttered veggies
Mashed taters and brown gravy
Store bought punkin pie with cool whip

That's my standard fare for Thanksgiving and Christmas, both. It's my own "tradition". Started a few years after I got divorced and realized I was getting depressed not having the kids around for holiday dinners.

How can I help you, and/or make you smile, today?

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.

I actually am. Headed to NoCal to meet my girlfriend’s parents for the first time. Haha. Here I am 46 years old and I feel like I’m meeting my high school sweetheart’s folks.
