It is currently resting, but I can already tell that the skin is parchment-thin and crispy, and the meat bursting with juices. T - 10 minutes. :hyper:

My dinner was a success with a few flops. I overdid the acorn squash, and had to toss them. Luckily I was able to save the cornbread/cranberry stuffing, and that went over well. No one wanted any apple ice cream, so it's mine, all MINE! The apple/pear/cranberry salad was very well received. The broccoli with soy/butter sauce and cashews was yummy! The turkey was moist, the pies so-so (will not use that crust recipe again).
And except for the roasting pan and one salad bowl, we are all cleaned up and put away!

Congrats! It all sounds good - especially the apple ice cream, the apple/pear/cranberry salad, and the broccoli with soy/butter sauce and cashews. We often stir-fry chicken with broccoli with a soy/mirin sauce and cashews - it's a good combination. How did you do the apple/pear/cranberry salad - what dressing did you use, if any? :yup:

Oh, and someone gave us a "donut cake" from Allie's Donuts. Cake-wise it seemed made out of a giant glazed donut, shaped like a pumpkin with orange frosting. Only thing I didn't try.

YAY! Success! I did overcook the turkey a little bit, which I do probably more than half the time, but other than that, everything came out great.

INCLUDING MY NEW NO-BREAD STUFFING!

So I'm gonna put this here partly so that next year, I can look it up and see what I did.

Cook a couple cups of wild rice blend (brown rice and I think two kinds of wild rice) in chicken stock
Sautee three andouille sausages, casings removed, with chopped celery, garlic, and tart apples
When the rice is still a little unfinished, add the sausage mixture, correct the liquid, season (provencal herbs, salt & pepper), then finish it in the oven

Chicken, stupendous. Mashed sweet potatoes with lemon zest and scallions, delicious. Chewy triple chocolate chip bar cookies, fantabulous. All in all, an excellent not-particularly-thanksgivingy meal. :hammock:

Turkey; roasted Brussels sprouts (5); a small roasted yam (approximately two bites); deviled eggs; mixed greens with walnuts, dressed with olive oil infused with red peppers; whiskey on the rocks; two slices low-carb pumpkin pie. Coffee. (There were mashed potatoes, pecan pie, and full-carb pumpkin pie, as well; I just didn't eat them.)

After dinner, we all watched "Penelople" together.

Default Re: Thanksgiving menus

"Bring a dessert.", my sister says. Thanksgiving was at my niece's house this year and since I had to travel the farthest it was expected of me to bring a dessert dish that travels well. So we made a variety of cookies and I made a Blackberry Ruby Port tart.

So what happens when we arrive? Every single person has brought an extra dessert. :glare:

We had a hot-out-of-the-oven rustic apple pie, chocolate peanut butter pie, pineapple coconut cake, brownies, lime "salad", more cookies, blueberry cobbler, and a few others that I can't remember.

The rest of the food consisted of oven roasted turkey, deep fried Cajun turkey, maple cured ham, carrot souffle, broccoli casserole, potato casserole, cornbread dressing, turkey gravy, butter beans, crock pot mac and cheese, assorted pickles (including pickled peaches :yum: and pickled okra :gross:), DEVILED FUCKING EGGS :hungry:, and a ton of other stuff that I can't remember.

Most of the meal was basically Southern cooking, but that is because my family is your basic Southern Family. My Mom, Sonoma Bear, and I are the only real adventurous eaters. It is one of the reasons my Mom enjoys visiting with the two of us since we are not afraid to try different cuisines.

I used raspberry balsamic, dijon "hearty" mustard, and olive oil. The fruit was served in baby mixed greens, with some added feta cheese and chopped walnuts.

eta: Deviled eggs are awful! all that mayonnaise-yuck!

These Thanksgiving dinners all sound delightful, and I hope everyone had a delicious time, mayonnaised or not.

Turkey lasagna came out perfect. Old weight watchers recipe that I've been using for a decade and a half. I burnt the veggies that I cooked the sausages in (peppers and onions), but I just buried the evidence and served the well-done sausages without any veggies, and I don't think anyone noticed. Garlic bread, chicken caesar salad, store-boughten punkin pie, and sparky cranberry drink (can't not have cranberry on the table!). Easy Peasy.

Went off without a hitch, although I did end up making the pecan pie at 6am on Thanksgiving because that's the way the cookie crumbled. I was just too tired to make it the night before. My mama kept saying, "You make this look so easy!" and we sat down for dinner 30 minutes ahead of my schedule, which was a triumph. Everyone said things were delicious, whether they were or not! A good morning, and I didn't have to put the leftovers away or do dishes, so even better.

Janet, I used your recipe and the cranberry salad was lovely!

Here is a blurry view of our pre-dinner table with the giant flowers. We did move them so we could all see each other when we ate.

My sister and I had a little communication problem in that we both thought the other had bought the cauliflower. So no cauliflower with cheese sauce and I now have a ton of cheese, which is not at all a bad thing. Fortunately our guest found a great mixed greens salad with berries and pecans on sale and decided to bring it along, so we had two vegetables anyway.

I overcooked the turkey a bit. I've never cooked a 10 pounder before and it made a difference. It was still yummy, though, as was everything else. Had a bit of a mishap with the salad dressing. I was shaking balsamico and olive oil in a small jar and did not notice until too late that the lid didn't fit well. Little brown drops all over the counter, floor, fridge and, of course, my white apron. Oops!

Nothing special, first dinner without Dad. Just a turkey, stuffing, yams, and broccoli, with a choice of pecan or pumpkin pie.

Just went to the shrimp shack down on the river. Gorgeous, large, fresh, locally-wild-caught shrimp for $7.99lb. Ha! Yeah it's badass

I also got crab claw meat for my pistolette stuffing, 11.99 for a 1lb tub

I was going to partly or entirely blow it off because it's just me and Matlock mostly, but then I figured we'd probably regret it later if I didn't do it, so: Turkey, bread stuffing, mashed potatoes, yams, brussels sprouts, cranberry relish, apple and pumpkin pie.

The only things I'm really blowing off are extra appetizer stuff we usually do, and more vegetables. People never eat much of that on Thanksgiving anyway.
