    I love that word, "dispatch"... You had to do it, or chose to do it? Fresh, that's for sure. I did a Bourbon Red a couple of years ago when we had Thanksgiving here and it was excellent. Really tasted like turkey, rather than not much.

    We were at the apple orchard a couple weeks ago and they had a sign up selling turkeys, it was one of the boys 4-H projects or something but you had to take em alive. All the toms had been spoken for so we claimed a hen and picked it up Saturday. We didn't have to do it, we could have got a grocery store buzzard like nearly everyone else. I figured it would be a good learning experience for all of us.

    I'll be on the road

    if I had to venture a guess it might be fast food so someone at my family gathering will need to gather up a plate of food for me and drop it off at the house

    I like this. It's supposed to be 52 here Turkey day, I told the family that I'll start cooking after I get a ride in. They can wait and snack and watch football in the interim.
    I'd like to make it a tradition, but sometimes Thanksgiving here can be cold and snowy/icy.

    Got a Flintstones sized Prime Rib, red skinned smashed potatoes, cornbread stuffing, steamed green beans, steamed white and yellow corn, and several different pies ala mode along with my homemade cranberry relish.

    I hate cleaning birds....they got gross stuff inside...

    I buy empty ones!
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    Lobster, baked potato and corn-on-the-cob. Desert is TBA.

    My wife and I usually spend TG together with no other friends/family. To make a traditional TG dinner is a lot of work and a lot of food for two people. A few years ago we hit on the Lobster idea. It costs about the same as a traditional spread (we get 1.75# Lobsters), doesn't take anywhere near the time to prepare, is a snap to clean up after, no having to eat leftovers for the next two weeks and doesn't require a couple hours in a coma to get over.

    This year we're having two guests. One is going with Lobster, but the other, for some perverse reason, wants a pound of Snow Crab.

    Go figure. There's no accounting for taste.

    It's almost here, another turkey day. We are cooking, and even making a sweet potato dish with pecans some lounger posted a few years back.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    The usual, mostly, plus I'll make homemade spinach noodles, rolled out by hand with my Nonna's old rolling pin. That's a bit of family tradition for this 50% Italian.

    I'm planning on camping and mountain nnc-ing in the Western NC mountains all weekend. Thanksgiving dinner will be the Chinese buffet in Brevard, assuming they're open. I love the irony!

    bake in a glass bread pan at 375 for 50 minutes. It will come out similar in texture to banana bread.
    Sounds very tasty. I might try making this. Thanks

    Brined fresh turkey breast, then cooked on the outdoor charcoal rotisserie with some apple wood for smoking. Grilled shrimp (butter, garlic, dijon & sweet soy prior to grilling) for an apetizer. Oyster stuffing, potatoes, gravy, grilled asparagus, green bean casserole, pumpkin cheescake. And some O'Fallon pumpkin beer to wash it down with.

    To OP, I make a simple green bean dish that is always a big hit - called "not your mother's green beans".
    Chop a couple of shallots and fresh parsley. Toast some pine nuts. Steam green beans for just a few minutes so they are still crisp. Mix everything together and toss with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Very nice.

    I cooked 2 Turkeys this weekend for a T-Giving themed campout. Brined and then smoked with apple wood for 7 hrs. They were awesome
    I tend to dislike sweet potato dishes that are made sweeter. I prefer them savory. Make mashed taters from equal parts regular, sweets and yams. Make and mash them separately. Then put all three in a large bowl and then swirl loosely so they don't blend

    I am already sick of T-day foods.
    We have already had my work meal, left overs and my wifes work meal with left overs.
    Thursday will be eating with my folks, Friday with my wifes family.
    More than likely have left overs for those as well.

    For what I am making. Not much. I do Christmas dinner for everyone, about 25 people.

    My contrubitions will be brussell sprouts, crawfish dressing and mac & chees (made with gruyere, Emmenthaler and sharp cheddar).

    Since T-day goes on forever for us I need some suggestions for a non typical Christmas dinner for a bunch of folks. My side of the family would prefer more traditional but....
    Would like to include wild turkey I hope to harvest.
    I am also considering grilling cornish hens for everyone.
    Did a fried ducks a few years ago that was a hit.

    Sadly, my post this year is the same as last year. Skiing on Thanksgiving day, Thanksgiving dinner on the hill, although this year that will be followed up beverages and hot tubbing with some friends. Happy Thanksgiving to me .

    Looks nice. We always drink Beaujolais Nouveau with the turkey. It's become a little seasonal tradition with us.

    Manicotti for most of the family and baked gluten-free penne (for the daughter who has lost 15 lbs on a gluten free diet) with the super secret PDex meat gravy. Bread, wine, and a flour-less chocolate cake for dessert.

    We're pretty non-traditional on Thanksgiving.
