Mmmm... thanksgiving.

 

Turkey, ham, rolls, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, stuffing (my fav), sweet potato casserole, bean salad, ambrosia, deviled eggs aaaannddd.... I know I'm forgetting something. Darn.

 

This year though, I think I'm going to my sisters sig.others thanksgiving, they have a TON of people over and I'm sure everyone brings something. So it may be a little different. I'm excited though.

When I'm in the field, the Army usually brings us in and gives us a fairly nice meal. Maybe a slice of turkey, some fake mash potatoes and some god awful stuffing...but it's the thought that counts really :)

Are you spending it in the field this year?

Thanksgiving has obviously passed for Canada. Sadly I missed it this year (very traditional and not a lot of food for a vegetarian) but I'm sad I missed out on the dessert

pies in jars  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

 

So this Thanksgiving I had pizza and watched the sequel to the Purge (do not recommend with food)

I need pies in a jar! Also, I haven't seen the purge sequel yet.

 

Half of my dads side is vegan/vegetarian, so if/when we celebrate with that side, there are usually some pretty non-traditional thanksgiving foods. Always taste though, so its cool.

I'm thinking this year we may go pre-roasted chicken instead of turkey (slap me, i know)... it all depends on how i feel in the days leading up. I wish Australia celebrated thanksgiving! I LOVE the fall decorations!! :)

Thanksgiving lunch.dinner usually consists of the regular stuff, turkey, dressing, egg salad, ham.... ~sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top~

 

Every few years we'll want to shake it up and do seafood instead. There is shrimp and lobster.

Aussies don't celebrate Thanksgiving, so it's every other food day for me.

 

I do love turkey though, it can be delicious in a sammich.

Since it's usually just my husband and I I'll do a chicken instead of a turkey. Chickens are tastier IMO. As for sides, I like doing mashed potatoes (real ones, not box potatoes), the canned jellied cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, a roll of some sort, green bean casserole, and stuffing. My favorite part is the stuffing so I end up making mountains of it, it seems.

It's going to be Chinese this year. My aunt is leaving for Vegas, we're watching her kids, I work, and my grandma is in the hospital. So we postponed the actual turkey dinner until next week. That way everyone is home and can enjoy.

 

EDIT: Apparently the turkey defrosted and freezing it again is out of the question so my mom would rather cook it. So we'll have turkey, mashed potatoes and turkey gravy, stuffing, and vegetables along with some Romanian desserts that I am more excited to eat than anything else.

My family's Thanksgiving meal will consist of Turkey, Ham, Baked Mac & Cheese, rice, string beans, collard greens, stuffing, sweet potatoes, and more. (Chitterlings if I'm unlucky)

 

My family keeps yelling at me whenever I don't eat everything, but they forget that I'm trying to lose weight. :/

We are preparing as much stuff as we can so we only have to cook it tomorrow. Except the soup is going to be precooked than heated up because we already took the neckbones from the turkey.
