    So everyone is differnt and some people are traditional and have the turkey, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce that is associated with thanksgiving. but what is it you and your family have to eat and do on thanksgiving? what is it that may make you normal or maybe set you apart?

    At our house we get together at the grandparents house and watch football and bs while the women cook and do their own brand of BS. On the table we have turkey, ham, stuffing, gravy, Oyster stuffing, cranberry salad, mashed taters and veggies. when i was in college i didnt get to come home for thanksgiving and turkey wasn't our favorite to cook so we did deer steak and taters.

    what about you all??

    I'm not sure yet, Jeremy. My girlfriend and I are furnishing the turkey. We're taking it to her son's house about an hour away. I hope they have ham, too! I don't care much for turkey, myself. Hopefully mashed potatoes, peas, stuffing, and cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. And we're also furnishing the wine. German white wine. Dexheimer Doktor Spatlese, Zeller Schwarze Katz, and Piesporter Michelsberg. And the host of the event make his own homemade beer. He has a new batch on tap at the bar. :roll_eyes:

    Well looks like it will be Sardines and Soda Crackers topped off with a can of pork and beans for me. Unless I get out of the dog house. :big_smile_2:
    But if i can whisper enough "Sweet Nothings" , it will be turkey, ham, chicken and dumplings, fried oysters, mashed potatoes, green beans, sweet potato cassorole, pie, and a chocolate topped desert she makes. Hopefully will be about 20-25 kids, grand kids, in laws, out laws and the good lord only knows who else here for dinner.

    Sardines and crackers are good eats. And I'd much rather have MD 20/20 and potted meat than Champagne and caviar.

    Nothing wrong with MD 20 20,, their grape is good,, tastes like a red wine should,,,, you can tell I have class.

    Sardines are not bad either, but on Thanksgiving one should splurge on Kipper snacks and Club crackers.

    My wife and I are going to a Buffet ,,,

    I usually pit cook a turkey for Thanksgiving and sometimes Christmas. Dig a 4 foot deep hole in the ground and burn hedgewood til I got a 2 1/2 foot deep bed of coals, slather butter all over a turkey, add a few other things, wrap it in about 5 layers of foil and pitch it in the hole and cover it up with dirt. Dig it up 5-6 hrs later and you don't have to carve it because it literally falls apart when you dump it in the pan. Only problem is you have to start about noon the day before if you wanna do it right. Don't have enough time this year so it's pheasant and quail nuggets and chili made with deer and wild hog meat. Not sure what everyone else is bringing but I'm sure there's gonna be some fried okra, squash, and cornbread involved.
