Washington DC and The Holy Land>Thanksgiving 2019
HonestChieffan 08:58 AM 11-12-2019


We are just a couple weeks away from Thanksgiving Day and started making plans for celebrating the day. Here is a good read on history:
https://carm.org/thanksgiving

We have done Turkey about every way possible and we seem to alway go back to traditional side dishes...Sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, fruit salad, cranberries, even mashed potatoes and of course dressing.

So many things we all have to be thankful for!!

What do you all do? Anything not as traditional?

That's some good mom stuff right there.

I'll be baking the bread for the event and will be assisting in the preparation of the bird. I'll also be bringing cherries, garlic, and onions from my homestead and those ingredients will go into the meal as well.

We will likely do "Christmas" exchanges early as we won't be able to all get together again this year.
You have cherry trees?

It also satisfies her need to totally overcook the bird.

Spatchocking chicken on an occasional, or rotational basis, is great. But spatchocking turkey screws up the stuffing. And that's a capital crime in my family.

Yep, no stuffing the spatch. Doesn't confront me any, I don't put stuffing in a bird anyway.

I have a great friend in South Carolina who has a family recipe for Banana Pudding that I may volunteer to do for Thanksgiving. Pretty traditional southern dish and for sure we will do collards
