Cilantro

Dial is cheaper and already a liquid you can find in your kitchen.

The nerve of this lady. One of the recipes calls for duck fat. Does she just assume I live near the park.

I sent my daughter off to college a heterosexual carnivore. They're sending me back a lesbian, possibly bisexual vegetarian.

Vegetarians are the most annoying people on the farking planet. I want my money back. Her new girlfriend is nice though. They're settling down in Chicago after graduation. fark both of them for not eating turkey though.

FloridaWombat: DrGunsforHands: Xythero: Absurd!  Ham is not a traditional Thanksgiving dish.

Ham is for Easter.

No, ham is for New Years.  *Lamb* is for Easter.


No, lamb is for Halloween. Ham is for Passover.

OgreMagi: I'm hoping my favorite Indian restaurant will be open for the day. Chicken Tikka Masala would be perfect.


Turkey Tikka Masala. I See A Great Need.

Kit Fister: How about Poutine. Can we have Poutine?


He who denigrates poutine denigrates Canada. And the only people what can denigrate Canada are Canadians, eh? Poutine for everybody! It'll keep the beavers happy!

FloridaWombat: my best friend is from Texas and she forces those damn black eyed peas on me every year.


I always thought black-eyed peas were tasty, with or without pork-based accompaniments, no matter which day of the year they were served on. I guess YMMV. Turkey? OK, I guess. I'd like to go way traditionalist and have venison steaks wrapped in bacon and grilled, with squash and beans and oysters on the side. And pie. No holiday is complete without pie.

Canadian raccoon pan fried with Mexican beans.
African lion seared in yangu oil... with Russian cabbage on the side.
Cuban chayote desert.

That is the only way we roll for Thanksgiving.   We are definitely in that NPR 'groove'.

You can see the whole menu and recipe(s) at NPR's website.    Click on 'anything but American' tab, scroll down to select 'Lefty activism' menus

Last year our christmas dinner was a gourmet French meal.  It was awesome.  My roommate's French girlfriend was staying with us.  Unfortunately, they chose to get married and get their own place.  My stomach is not happy with that decision.

Thanks!

Sometimes; I think we live in our own, personal Anatevkas. For some, their Anatevka may be a specific holiday celebration. For others, their Anatevka may be a dinner at a Chinese restaurant. But, for us, Anatevka is a big mean guy; that's coming to kill us

TofuTheAlmighty: Turkey sucks. No other meat requires so much tinkering to make it vaguely edible. (Admittedly, I've never had a wild turkey or even heritage bird. But I suspect they aren't worth the effort either.)


You shut your whore mouth.

 I've noticed that these examples of "War on (fill in the tradition)" tend to be other people choosing not to adhere to said tradition. If Costco decides they want to say Holiday instead of Christmas to be more inclusive that's their business. Stop throwing a tantrum just because others are liking what you don't like.

In other words, if you're bored of turkey and stuffing and whatever, try something different. Its almost as if the food itself has nothing to do with the original meaning of the holiday, and thus eating the same shiat every year might not be as important as trying new things while enjoying family and the bounty of your life.
