I like squash and pumpkin with real whipped cream. Though to be blunt, they only taste so good because of the seasoning mix, especially pumpkin. Otherwise it would be pretty tasteless. Apple on the other hand is pretty good with ice cream! I agree, no pie eating nation can be vanquished  :D

My aunt is having Thanksgiving dinner for the extended family at her restaurant.  I've been nominated to bake pie  ;D  I'll most certainly make one of my hickory nut pies, and I'm still up in the air about the other one.  I have a jar of micemeat I bought in the grocery store a few years ago (and it isn't out dated for another couple years  ::)  ), but I also have a couple nice sweet potatoes that I don't know what to do with.  I saw a recipie for sweet potato pie on the Food Network that was made like pumpkin pie.  Maybe I'll make that one...or all three  :D

Ohso, I had ta double check yer location there.  I knew you weren't from the South when you said you didn't know what to do with them sweet taters. ;) :D :D :D

Sweet potato pie is an old standard in the Deep South.  It is a lot like pumpkin pie, but has more natural flavor instead of all the spices.  It is easier to make too, unless you get your pumpkin from a can.

I don't do a bad job of the fried pies from dried apples or peaches. Had to convert to Splenda for the wife's type two.  I prefer the apple she's the peaches.

Turkey around my house is a bit different. Take a 1" X 4" X 4" block of salt pork and shave it. Chop a couple or three large sweet white onions. Add two to three heaping table spoons of crushed red pepper. Stuff the cavity with part of the mixins above. Spread the rest around the gobbler. Fill the pan with about an inch of water. Cover or tent tightly leaving vent in the foil with just a few pick holes. Cook slowly overnight at about 300 degrees. About 7 hours. Number 1 and most important this is a moist turkey. Number two the drippins go over rice and cathead scratch buttermilk biskets. All the rest of the traditional turkeyday stuff goes with it to complete the meal. My Uncle from Baton Rouge brought up two swamp rabbits, one 5 and one 5 1/2 lbs. dressed. My Grandmother fixed them the same as the turkey. With the crushed red pepper, they both tasted like chicken.  :D :D :D Hope someone tries and enjoy's the family secret. Chris.

Hi everyone,

some really neat traditions around the country...I miss the turkey day with my folks. when I was in high school and college in Montana  my dad and I would always go deer hunting on thanksgiving day. it was usually the last weekend of rifle season so we would get up early and go out for a few hours while mom would cook all the traditional stuff, turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes & gravy home made biscuits green beans or peas and pumkin and apple pie.  We would get home around 2 o'clock and eat and watch the cowboys play the traditional afternoon football game. We have  small family so it was always a small gathering. now that I live in Seattle and my parents live in Ohio, it's a phone call  :(  I usually go over to friends from church and eat, it's nice but not quite the same. Miss those hunts with my dad,

may your holliday be blessed and safe

Steve

PS this is a great site, look forward to making new friends

What a surprise it would be to show up on his doorstep, unannounced, on one of these holiday weekends.  Even for a few hours, it would make their holidays special.

Welcome to the forum. Know what you mean about family and a bit of deer hunting and then sit for a grat meal. I like the dessert first, followed by the turkey, stuffin, gravy, and all the many other things......

hey Tom,

I flew back and saw them earlier this fall, actually went to the logging show in Cambridge,  it was only a few miles from my folk's place.  if things go according to plan, this will be the last holiday season I'll miss. 8)

Beenthere,

I can't seem to convince myself when to stop eating,  I know it's to much when I have to pop the top button on the Levi's to make room for expansion... still force down the extra piece of pie though, or the late evening turkey samwich  :D

Fryed turkey, baked ham, carrot suffle, stuffing, and pecan pie.  Those are the standards around here. New things each year are tryed out for fun.

I like dessert first, so that happened about 1:30 today. Afterwards, the grand daughters searched for their Christmas tree (last year their was 6" of snow when they did that).




Later about 5 came the turkey dinner and all the fixin's. Plumb full now, but I had dessert when I had room for dessert  ;D
