    I will be eating with my wife's side of the family at lunch, and my side of the family for dinner. Two helpings of the givens!

    Around here it is a tradition to buy a big, fat, juicy Butterball turkey, and if you'll notice, it's raised without hormones!

    Uh, I would have to advise against that steve. These days, turkey's are armed to the teeth, they'll fight back!

    This is going to be a fun thread to work on leading up to Thanksgiving. Do you hear that slurping sound, that's the sound of me licking my chops!

    I remember one Thanksgiving, I tried this garlic chicken dish my in-laws made, and my stomach was upset for days. Never again!

    I live in California. Thanksgiving has been cancelled here. Otherwise, what will I be doing on Thanksgiving? The same as I've always done. The big shots in Sacramento can stuff it up their turkey.

    A little something John Madden likes to call the "Turducken". It is part turkey, part duck, and part chicken.

    Wife and I will be with the neighbors, they were kind enough to invite us.
    Food? I kinda pace myself on the turkey, but have a plan to consume mass quantities of pecan and sweet potato pie...well, maybe 2 pieces of each if I can get away with it.

    TV? Ahhhhhhhhh, my neighbor has a monster, yes, M-O-N-S-T-E-R eleven foot wide tv.YES, a tad over 132" left to right. It's a projection model, but the pic is crisp and just jaw dropping. Couple this with his 4 theatre seats and you really feel like you're at the movie theatre. The picture is something you could almost fall into. He has a killer sound system, you can feel the bass in the floor. Not sure if we'll be doing the tv, but its his toy. He likes to say "some people do cocaine, I do tvs". IF we go up to his loft to watch I'll try to get a pic and post it.

    In any event, here's wishing you all have a great day, wherever you are and whoever you share the day with.

    They of course will gravitate to a food source.

    Some folks in my neighborhood always put food out in the morning for the turkeys, and sometimes there's around five or ten of them in a particular yard at one time.

    I guess to them it's turkey heaven - easy access good tasty food they don't have to work for. LOL

    I would leave the turkey's one bowl of Kibbles 'n Bits and some water outside. If they don't like that, then they can just go back to the woods!

    Yes, I just checked and Wal-Mart doesn't have cornbread dressing again this year. We'll have to eat Stove Top stuffing. I can't believe this.

    Last Thanksgiving, I had to bake a turkey, dutch apple pie, and yeast rolls. I was walking around the kitchen the whole day. Do you know what it's like to get a leg cramp from baking? I seriously doubt it!

    I don't know why I even bother to buy all of this food, because this Thanksgiving will end just like all of the others, with me showing up at the dinner table drunk, wearing a Santa hat and embarrassing everyone.

    In all seriousness, if anyone reading this is yet to buy a turkey and you are willing to pay a little more....go out of our way and find an organic turkey. You won't be disappointed.

    It will soon be time for our annual Christmas thread. I'm looking forward to that. It's the most wonderful time of the year. Of course, being the cheapskate that I am, I'll do anything to save money this year. And I do mean ANYTHING.

    Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday. We are having our usual family dinner, and absolutely not listening to the Governor and his stupid directive to not have a large gathering of people. Menu is as follows Turkey, Sausage Stuffing, Stove Top Stuffing ( Yes 2 Stuffings ) Mashed, Corn, Peas, Squash, Cranberry Sauce with Cranberries not the molded jelly version, Biscuits, Apple pie, Pumpkin Pie. It’s a big cheat day for me 🦃🍻🇺🇸

    That's the new hybrid bedbug-turkey.

    I've never had one, but supposedly the meat is deliciously crunchy.

    I don't know about bedbugs, but the roaches in my kitchen have established themselves quite well. They're not from the U.S either, they appear to be Turkish. They even have their own embassy on my kitchen floor, and Emir is the roach at the front desk. He's actually pretty friendly.

  • jay0791jay0791 Posts: 2,935 ✭✭✭

    Yes the bedbug meat is delicious.

    and very juicy

    of course the juice is your own blood.

    The secret is to eat it before it eats you.

    I went to reply to this, but then realized that I had absolutely no idea how to respond. So I guess I will just wish @doubledragon, Mrs. DD, Joe Louis and Emir the happiest of Thanksgivings. Same goes with the rest of you. I hope you all have the best possible holiday in the crazy times in which we live!!
