Will you be having a traditional Thanksgiving meal this year (turkey, stuffing, etc.)?
I didn't know up until the time I ate what my uncle was serving! So, NOW I have voted on this poll.
@CoochLvr good for you. I lost 115 lbs. doing Atkins. I also go to TOPS. Good luck.
No. I adhere to a low carbohydrate/low sugar diet. So turkey and ham - yes. All the other stuff - no. Give me meat, fat, and some salt, and I thrive!
yes, a turkey!
yes, we always have the traditional feast, with all the family helping out by bringing one of the side dishes. we all have fond memories of Grandma's wonderful Thanksgiving celebrations. family, friends and always a few visitors who don't have family close by.
thx 3rd sides! go veg!happy thanksgiving
Yeah! Traditional Thanksgiving foood! Turkey, cranberry sauce from the can, giblet gravy, stuffing, broccoli casserole, sweet potato casserole, corn casserole, apple salad, pumpkin pie... Yum! :D
Remember what you can be thankful for.
Monday I got a call. I go to OHSU for my dental instead of waiting till late March for my root cannel I got in Tuesday. It was $479 rather than $2000 that's something to be thankful for.
Is there another option? Lol
I'm not going to eat The abused - its - entire - life turkey tho
STUFFING. I am the only one who eats it though.
Just like every year. :) Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Does anybody eat ham instead of turkey because I do????
fried Texas turkey, yum
Planoneck: My Son usually resides in Mangilao ;). (UOG). But he's involved with a lot of folks outside the Univ. He first lived in Yigo. He's currently doing an internship in UK, will be back "home" by April. He hopes to live perm on Saipan-where he spent last ThanksGiving with Island-Wide BBQ!
I'm a vegetarian, so I'll eat some of the usual stuff and ad in something extra. no fake turkey, just other foods :)
I feel bad for celebrating thanksgiving. The pilgrims feasted after the decapitation of chief Phillip. When I'm out of my parents house with my future family I wont make it a tradition
Thanksgiving food is my favorite to make it reminds me of my grandmother so I always do it- even when I was alone I'd still cook myself a turkey breast and just small portions of my favorite sides- leftovers are the best! Turkey and barley soup is a hug in a bowl.
No tofu for me ever! I want to keep my breast thank you very much.
Congratulating you rosebud. give her a hug from me please.
I brine my turkey. Never dry.
We'll make it as traditional as we can, considering our entire family is from the Caribbean. We'll have turkey AND cow tongue!
Didn't know there were so many vegetarians and vegans on here. Most of the ones I know are Hindus.
Tofurkey for me :)
My husbands family goes out to eat on thanksgiving so thats what ill b doin. and since my gma is in a nursing home this yr my side of the family won't really b doin thanksgiving like usual. Than after we go out eat we r goin to Kansas city to see the Christmas lights
Unfortunately, no. I DO miss all the cooking I used to do, decorating, kids helping out, other family & friends...but after six years, I've gotten used to it. My cat & I spend the Holidays together-IF I'm not in the hospital. She gets her Fancy Feast Appetizer, & "mom" gets a special TV dinner! ;)
@vedheadgrl Tofurkey tastes better than real turkey.
veggie thanksgiving for me! All the traditional food minus the turkey
vegan version of all the other regular stuff: stuffing, Mac and cheese, etc.
vegan thanksgiving. gardein brand faux turkey :)
@jjc aw, man. so hard to lose grandma and still carry on with the traditions. my condolences and blessings to you and yours.
Turkeys are easy. Put it in one of those bag things, follow the directions. Easier if you don't stuff it, bake that separately. Turkey turns out moist in the bag, no basting. Good luck, and sorry about your Grandma :-(
First year grandma is gone = my first year even thinking about cooking a turkey. STRESS.
amen, soccer09! unfortunately both of mine are gone so I have try to recreate from their hand-scribbled recipes. and loving every minute of channeling their love and passion for all things "family"!!
I'm going to make a vegan version of the traditional meal.
Food made by your grandma > everything
damn, gjb2779. props to you for cooking for that many people!
darn it stupid double post
pretty traditional. only difference in our meal is the size of guest list is close to 30...yikes
@perot4prez first I ever heard of it was from John madden during a lions game on thanksgiving. lol
I would like to know what the person that invented the TurDucken was smoking. What would make you think it will taste good? The first 4 letters spell turd.
@cup0pizza that is totally inappropriate and extremely funny. That is cracking me up every time I read it
yeeeah for deep fried turkey, deep fried stuffing, deep fried cranberries with deep fried mashed potatoes
I will be enjoying thanksgiving extra this year because last year I had my wisdom teeth removed the day before. terrible holiday last year
@punchy it's embarrassing you would even begin to assume the lions will beat the packers on thanksgiving.
