pink624 :  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! I just got back from the grocery store shopping for Thursday and saw this thread. I’m so excited we are hosting this year and cooking obscene GOBS of food and having a house full of family and friends. We are making…

25lb turkey bird, mashed potatoes, gravy, yams, green bean casserole, fried corn, macaroni n cheese, red pepper n cheese grits, collard greans n hocks, and probably some squash. We’ll also do a meat n cheese tray with breads n crackers, olives n cheese, and probably have tossed salad too. 

I will take the organs, dark meat and some broth and fat and make a pate for my kitty kat to enjoy. she goes BONKERS over her treat! 

My mother in law will bring in probably a dozen pies and my SILS will bring the rest of desserts. 

Macy’s day parade on all morning, cooking, candles burning, CAN’T WAIT! We’re eating at 3pm and will play games and cards the rest of the day. We’ll haul out the Chritmas tree and begin putting that together and decorating, then have second dinner of leftovers buffet at 9pm usually. 

Thanksgiving is literally my favorite day of the year!!!! 

Eta…my gosh how could I have forgotten my husbands stuffing holy cow that stuff is AMAZING !!!

My fiancé’s family does: turkey, gravy, green bean casserole, augrauten potatoes, cranberry sauce, homemade rolls, a crushed pineapple bake thing. They eat at noon

My immediate family does ribeye and a mashed potato casserole because there was always only 3 of us. When we are with the extended family, we do the usual thanksgiving food but we have corn waffles for breakfast! And homemade chocolate mousse is always included! Yum! We always eat around 3ish.

We always have green salad with ours πŸ™‚ Although FI’s family is in the upper Midwest and the first holiday I spent with them I learned that “salad” does not involve vegetables…  instead cool whip, vanilla pudding and cookies/candy/canned mandarins etc. 

This year we are having turkey (always roasted with salt pork on the skin), stuffing, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, corn casserole, salad and rolls. Pumpkin and apple pies for dessert.

Nothing! I work all day so no time to cook or crash anyone else’s. So I will probably heat up leftover something from the freezer.

We always go to FI’s mother’s house. The basics are the same every year; shrimp cocktail, deep fried turkey, baked ham, corn, yam and pecan casserole, mashed potatoes, crescent rolls, canned cranberry sauce, and the obligitory green bean casserole.

His older sister brings macaroni and cheese. His younger sister brings dessert – this year will be carrot cake with maple frosting and caramel ganache. We bring some kind of appetizer – this year I want to make caramelized onion and gruyere quiche.

We eat around 3-4.

We have a somewhat non-traditional Thanksgiving.  Ham (yep, no turkey) mashed potatoes, some type of salad, biscuits, and crustless pumpkin pie.  There might be some canned cranberries.

This year, because of my husband and my non-traditional schedule our Thanksgiving dinner will be served at supper time (5pm).

Kitty makes her own Thanksgiving choices.  For her, this includes her favorite wet food–a samon flavor.

Turkey, homemade dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, Brussels sprouts, cranberry salad, rolls, pecan pie, and pumpkin pie, with deviled eggs, pickles and olives.  And dinner is about 2.

Of that, I eat the turkey, deviled eggs and a couple of brussels.

Ok this is definitely the place to ask something I have always wondered. I’m English and see on American tv shows and I think mentioned here sweet potatoe (yams?) with marshmallows on top. Is this served as a pudding/dessert? Or is it a side dish to the main course? Also pumpkin pie is that sweet or is it a sort of savoury dessert? I am really tempted to try the sweet potatoe and marshmallows but it also revolts me a little because my brain says no those two things do not belong together!
