We're going very traditional this year (last year we had hot wings)... but I don't want to do a lot of cooking, so, because we usually eat a LOT of vegetables, I'm leaving them completely out of the Thanksgiving menu this year. We're having:

Cornish game hens
Mashed potatoes
Pumpkin pie
French apple pie
Whipped cream

Yum! So, what are you having?

Dry cold turkey we buy from a Dominican restaurant that we will eat standing up at work...LOL

Oh, also Yuka, fried plantains and sweat plantains, rice and beans and probably canned cranberry one co worker loves for some reason.

Maybe some Cuban pork...that is actually REALLY good. Mmmmm "lechon"..

This year I have to help out at my dads place. Sucks. Reminds me of childhood. LOL

Cthurkey and Cthrawberry Pie

We're having pan-seared salmon, sweet potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts, potato rolls, wine, and a pumpkin bread/toffee/granola/whipped cream trifle. So, sort of traditional and sort of not. It will be just the three of us this year - my husband, my daughter and myself - and my daughter is sooooo picky that the only things on that menu she will touch is the sweet potato and the potato rolls. I'll be making something separate for her, like maybe ravioli and broccoli (her two favorite foods).

The usual but I'm subbing cheesecake for pumpkin pie.

What the???

The Cthurkey doesn't look very appetizing, but I would eat that pie!

Yeah, that needs a lot of work. I like the idea of the turkey and the bacon though. ;p

We're going very traditional. Turkey, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, green bean casserole, corn. (and a few other staples). I think I'm going to spice things up (hehe) by making some of the deviled eggs into sriracha deviled eggs, and the green bean casserole will be made from scratch instead of using 'cream of crap' condensed soup. For desserts we're doing pumpkin pie, apple pie, and peanut butter pie.

I was actually kind of advocating for a barbecue cookout style Thanksgiving instead... and naturally I got outvoted by a landslide. Maybe I'll win the vote for a Christmas BBQ since we'll switch it up and have that holiday at my house.

I'm planning to take my boys to the local casino on Friday for a steak and lobster / buffet dinner. I'll check my mailbox and, if I'm lucky, there will be a coupon for 2 free dinners.

The normal stuff all from the Co-op. On the way out I saw Turkeys from less then 50 miles from my house for sale too,damn!
Instead of pumpkin pie I'm doing cherry cheese cake and I found this cool recipe for pineapple,jello too. The pic is kind of what I'm making only I'm using peach jello and putting maraschino cherries into the centers

For Christmas the menu is mine. For Thanksgiving, the wife makes sure that we have the same old same old. Which, truth be told, I am ecstatic to have every year (and a few times in between):

Roasted turkey
Mesquite smoked ham
Jalapeno cornbread dressing
sweet potato/yam
green bean casserole (i can't get enough of it, and have made my own tobacco onions to put on top of it this year)
Cranberry sauce from a can, bcause i like it
garlic mashed potatoes

This year im also doing a baked brie. But that is being cooked to graze on while we are cooking.

Ill put up some pics in the food porn thread. But we are watching football while we eat this year, so i won't be doing all the big spread in the dining room.

Deep fried turkey
Mashed cauliflower and turnips with onion thickened gravy
Brown rice stuffing stuffed into acorn squash
Broccoli salad with jicama
Green bean casserole- non traditional, I will dredge my onions in coconut flour and make a non mushroom sauce with heavy cream and onion
Coconut cupcakes
Pumpkin pie hybridized with a certain pumpkin parfait recipe found around here
Both will have vanilla whipped cream, all of them are strictly stevia sweetened
And little mini paleo pumpkin breads and veggies with homemade ranch

The entire menu is safe for the candida diet that my son, and consequently the rest of the family, is on. Hopefully we will be full enough by dessert that we just won't notice the stevia!

Happy Thanksgiving!

i know stevia promote tooth health. i wonder if it has any additional benefits with the candidiasis?

The menu looks outstanding. The acorn squash...i can almost smell it.

Yes, please! Due to the food we actually ended up by ourselves this year. It will be more peaceful, but is Thanksgiving supposed to be peaceful? You would always be welcome at my table.

a reply to: bigfatfurrytexan

It's a natural sweetener without any glycemic response, so we are starving out the yeast. The boys love it but it still tastes slightly fake to me. Our other option is xylitol, but it's made from birch and I'm terribly allergic to that too, so stevia it is.

I figured the acorn squash would add a lot of flavor, it's a small substitute for sweet potatoes since I am making pumpkin too. I think I figured out how to turn your lovely parfaits into a pie too, wish me luck!

My standard Thanksgiving fare:

- Turkey with sage stuffing
- Sweet and sour meatballs
- Wild rice with mushrooms and bacon
- Cabbage rolls
- Perogies
- Mashed potatoes
- Gravy
- Peas with sauteed onions
- Glazed carrots
- Pumpkin pie and whipped cream

Afterward, the family tradition is to flop down on the couch and unzip the pants to relieve the pressure.

After about an hour of rest, we rally around the cleared table to play cards and rob each other of the change we have in our pockets.

And then it's rinse and repeat at Christmas time - but with the addition of a glazed ham, change up the pumpkin pie for a strawberry rhubarb pie with ice cream and tons of baked christmas goodies (shortbread, lemon tarts, matrimonial cake, etc).

It's a wonder none of us are 800 lbs... yet.

hubby and I going mostly non-traditional for our 1st thanksgiving together. We are going to do up some finger foods in the deep fryer, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, potatoes, chicken. Possibly doing up some pasta, but we cant forget pumpkin pie.
