Is this where we smother our libidos in gravy and turn into walruses?

yeah, that, or talk about Thanksgiving recipes. One or the other.

Mmmm I can't wait. I love Thanksgiving dinner.

oyster cornbread stuffing

I'm taking that with me to my friend's dinner. Also taking roasted carrots.

I'm going to say the unpopular thing I've said for years on end...I don't care what anybody thinks: cranberry sauce is better than cranberry jelly.

Day after Thanksgiving turkey and bleu cheese sandwiches.

I will rank the Thanksgiving foods for me :

1) Stuffing
2) Marshmallow yam thing
3) Pumpkin pie
4) cranberry gloop
5) mashed potatoes
6) gravy
7) turkey
8) whatever bland steamed vegetables they're trying to foist upon you

I don't know about the walrus part, but gravy makes good lube in a pinch.

Purelilac: oyster cornbread stuffing

I'm taking that with me to my friend's dinner. Also taking roasted carrots.



I usually don't bother following a recipe but that is my favorite stuffing.  I make the stuffing in a casserole no inside the bird.  The only thing I stuff into the bird are herbs and root vegetables to keep it moist.
 
2012-11-15 07:58:19 PM  
The stuffing my dad and I make must always include 1 can of Genesee Cream Ale. It's a completely shiatty beer, but dad insists because he's been doing it this way for 50 years.

Me, too. You have to overcook the turkey to get the stuffing safe. Much better to put it into a casserole.

I do a cornbread/andouille stuffing. and cook off all the various internal organs of the turkey in stock and then mash them into a pulp in my mortar and pestle and add that to the stuffing.

last year I did Alton Brown's brined turkey and it was definitely the best turkey I've ever made in 25 years of making them.

It was getting tight in there, stuffing each one of those inside the other, but OK, I'm ready for new experiences.

I had a big ol' frozen turkey sliding around in the back of my SUV like wrecking ball tonight. Every turn I made I would hear it slide and thunk the wall of the car. Mmmmm turkey.

Had the once with an RX-7 engine. Came off the freeway and had to brake too fast. It rattled up and hit the cab of the pickup hard enough to knock me and my friend forward.

We always have spaetzle as a side for some reason. And we make cheeseball appetizers which I practically inhale.

turkeys with rx-7 engines is really taking this genetically modified food thing too far.

We have all of the usuals. But one real favorite is a baked cauliflower.

Break up the cauliflower into a forkable size small enough for a bite. Put those into a baking pan a couple inches deep. Cover the cauliflower with a white sauce/bechamel. Salt to taste. Cover with grated cheese (we usually put two or three varieties) and some chopped almonds work well. You can play with the recipe a little - garlic and much else can help.

Bake at 350-400 or so until the top slightly browns.

Every year, this disappears before anything else does. A few years back, we added a second tray. It still disappeared first. A third tray sometimes means leftovers, but not always.

Give it a try. Make a small batch in a pie pan for yourself.

Oh, and whipped parsnips. Boil and prepare like mashed potatoes. They have an intense flavor and are creamier. A spoonful or two is a terrific contrast on the plate.
 
2012-11-15 08:33:55 PM  
I've got 2 bags of whole cranberries. Anyone have a good recipe other than sauce? I'd like to try something new.

Also, I always make crab dip for an appetizer. It generally keeps people from picking at the turkey and satiates my husband's Old Bay fix.

Making a cornish hen, drinking whiskey, and playing Halo.

I'm making roast pork loin, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and the rest. I don't like turkey.

Fair warning to the Vegetarians here. EVERYTHING I cook will have some animal product in it.
 
2012-11-15 08:38:12 PM  
Breasts. Big ones. Little ones. Perky ones. Saggy ones. Pale ones. Nicely browned ones. Covered ones. Exposed ones. With gravy. With Marshmallow creme. With cranberry sauce. With nothing on them.

I am trying to convince my mom to cook the turkey my dad killed last turkey hunting season. She refuses saying wild animals taste bad, and prefers getting a butterball turkey. My mom has bad taste.

There are just 2 of us so the challenge is to find a turkey breast under 6 lbs and isn't enhanced (low sodium diet). We do roasted turkey breast, cornbread stuffing, candied sweet potatoes, homemade dinner rolls (Mom's recipe), green beans, can 'o cranberry sauce, pecan pie for me and peach pie for the boyfriend (sometimes a peach cobbler for both of us). This candied sweet potato recipe is super easy and surprisingly tasty. Guess I shouldnt be surprised since it has bourbon in it....

If anyone is interested in the rolls recipe, holla and I'll post it.

If you live in Seattle, you should consider ordering a smoked turkey from Gabriel's Fire. We've been doing this for years now, and it's a real treat. Afterwards, you can make the best stock out of the bones and scraps.

Also, mashed carrots and turnips is an awesome side dish.

Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!

The best food for Thanksgiving... the cranberry gel that comes out in the shape of the can!

seriously.

i also do his stuffing sometimes. pretty sure he calls for it to be nuked before going in the bird, which I am fine with.
 
2012-11-15 08:42:42 PM  
I don't have any friends or family, and my microwave is broken.

I'll be having a cold can of soup for thanksgiving.
