Damn. Why did I never think of doing that? Top tip, thanks!

Does need bread sauce and a good spicy chutney.

We always use left overs for turkey curry, coronation turkey, turkey soup etc.



My mother (best cook in the world) I looked forward more to boxing day leftovers

which was a rice concoction with left over turkey, giblets, sultanas, chestnuts,

peas, sweetcorn and flavored with saffron and turmeric, along with secrets she

took to the grave with her!!!

Much missed for much more than her cooking.

Yes - also put fatty bacon over the breast and under the skin. Never cook stuffing inside the bird, stuff cavity with lemons/oranges and cook stuffing separately.

Avoid drying out by steadily drinking good red wine. Very important, that.

Stores that would usually make a lot of money off of holiday spending are making no acknowledgement of it this year.

Which stores?

My wee granny used to feed us the boiled chicken livers, they were smashing as well.

Suppose turkeys have them also.

Don't know about the Giblets all the same, i use them to make soup myself.

Chicken livers are good. Apparently giblets are good, too:

Chicken Giblets

I thought they were only good for gravy so I'm happy to be proved wrong. Persuading my wife to try them, on the other hand.......

Isn´t the sense of a holiday that -except for very important positions- everyone get´s a day off to celebrate that event? Are the stores in the USA opened 365 days a year?

I'm in the UK and my local 'mom & pop' corner store has been open every single day for 30 years I'm aware of. I don't stock up for Christmas, I just go to the shop as normal.
Big stores close for Christmas day only, they are open on every other public holiday though, employees get their public holidays just added to their regular leave allowance, that's currently six paid weeks a year...stuff US employees can only dream of in that land of the supposed free.

I imagine its no picknick across the pond.

But keep in mind we are the land of the minimum wage and zero hour contracts.

Bah Humbug, does not even begin to cover that problem.

Minimum wage ain't that bad, I live on effectively full-time minimum wage (after tax) because I'm lazy and often only work 2 days a week. I don't crave shiny things, just my needs.
You paint a bleak picture of Britain often mate, I have loads of mates who work full time minimum wage jobs, personal carers, waiting staff, etc etc, all happy and living good lives. Is it really that # in Scotland, really?

I'm self employed by choice and get no sick pay, holiday pay, or pension plan, that is my choice.
People on zero hours contracts make their own choices.
There is plenty of work around if you are prepared to do it. I've claimed unemployment benefits for maybe a total of six weeks in 30 years of working since I left school. I've done many a # job, and know many people who wouldn't do it because a scam with the social is easier. Fair enough, another life choice is all.

A holiday is what we each make of it.

I don't need, nor do I want, someone to tell what it means, or, conversely, I suppose, doesn't mean. I make that decision.

As far as deleting goes, good luck with that, whoever. Christmas, too, for that matter. I say Merry Christmas, and I always will.

Frankly, we give far too much credence to other peoples opinions on what is, or isn't, right these days.

The picture is bleak, and not getting any better im afraid.

CornishCeltGuy minimum wage is that bad that it's nowhere near enough to live off and absolutely no way in line with inflation nor in any way able to support the cost of living.

Fact is a lot of the poor souls are indeed better off on benefits, especially so if say you are a single Mum with 3 kids in a job with minimum wage and/or zero hour contracts.

Nurses and careworkers are using food banks for christ sake, something, very, very wrong there indeed!

I was a debt adviser for the CAB for a couple of years, the bank current account never lies, always the full sky package, 3 smartphone contracts for the kids, takeaways/Domino's delivered etc etc. I don't recognise you piss poor skint world, people are doing okay in my parts, sure we have our homeless but the average working person has a decent life.
We have # all work in these parts for six months of the year as well, we survive and are happy, maybe it's just better weather and nice beaches/moorland to escape into.

Because what happened to the Native Americans is directly linked to factory farmed turkey.


And celebrating the harvest is also directly linked to what happened to the Native Americans.


Most of the rest of the world sets aside time to celebrate the harvest. Only in the US do people tell us it's a horrible thing to do because the story behind the first US harvest celebration mixes pilgrims and Native Americans.

I'm still celebrating Thanksgiving. Nobody can force me to not celebrate it. LOL

With Stores going straight to Christmas...it's not because of a dislike of Thanksgiving, but because they make more money from Christmas stuff.

All we need to do to fix thanksgiving is start focusing on Being thankful for everything that we have and focusing on spending time with family and friends.

I don't see a problem? Are you guys saying that you can't celebrate a holiday unless the government makes a big deal about it and big box/chain stores tell you it's okay to celebrate it? lol

And it's true, we were horrible to the native americans for a long time, but....Let's just focus towards celebrating the harvest and being with family and being thankful for all that we have. No one can stop you from doing that. That's what I do in my family. No one is stopping me from celebrating thanksgiving and I'm fairly sure no one is stopping you. If they are, give me a call and I'll drive over and stop them from stopping you. That's a promise.

Its not my piss poor skint world, belongs to the majority unfortunately.

Austerity is right outside your window whether or not you care to accept it or otherwise.

Social workers, charities, NHS staff and 300,000 homeless will testify to that.

Glad you're peachy all the same, need to give me a shot of those Rose colored Brexit specs sometime.
