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?

Wow, nice looking food all around.

Around here we've tried just about everything, including deep-fried wild turkeys, smoked, turducken, sous vide (that was a lot of trouble) etc. The last few years we've gone traditional.

This year I'm planning on putting deep-fried okra on the table as well as a smoked honey glazed ham (4-lb.). Only my second smoked ham attempt so crossing my fingers on that.

Twenty years ago we tried prime rib roasts, stuffed pork loin roasts, giant broiled lobster tails (almost 2-lbers), a Dungeness crab boil . . . probably a couple other things. Oh, roasted and smoked geese a couple times that my dad shot when I was a kid.

Also, in our tradition, there's always white rice and kim chee on the table, as well as a few other traditional Korean celebratory dishes.

I've never tried that exact recipe, but it's within the bounds of the dish. I don't have access to my version right now, but here are a trio of other versions with enough similarities to look at and crib from:

https://leitesculinaria.com/82912/re...stuffings.html

And I hope that anyone who decides to try it, regardless of the exact version, enjoys it. One thing that I am trying this year, that I can post the recipe to, is Lighthouse Inn Potatoes. I'll post it in a follow up post.

Where do you place your Golden Calf statue, HCF? In the center of the Thanksgiving table, on a buffet or on an hors d'oeuvre tray?

Portuguese stuffing sounds too unAmerican for a distinctly American holiday. But that's just me, since I do not like chorizo sausage. Yuck!

Have you tried the Fake Ignore Thread feature?

Ron Paul supports it. You should give it a try.

If you don't like it, don't eat it.

This is a Holy Land forum right? I'm keeping it religious so it can stay here.
Keeping it political too. Doing HCF a favor.

9 Other Countries That Celebrate Thanksgiving....because there are people worldwide who celebrate giving thanks for harvests and successes through the year.


https://finance.yahoo.com/news/9-oth...110021067.html

The US has celebrated based on writings from the Pilgrims of the harvest celebrations of the Pilgrims with the local indians. They asked Gods blessings and gave thanks for the harvests and bounty of the land.

In many ways the celebration in modern times and the amazing abundance of foods continues that thanks for productive plantings and harvests of the huge supply and array of foods we have.

In Italy they have La Festa del Ringraziamento (or Festival of Thanks), which refer to a variety of religious holidays held throughout the year to honor patron saints. The closest Italians (living in Italy) would get to celebrating a Thanksgiving as we know it, would be their harvest celebrations they hold throughout the fall.

"Thanksgiving is so much more than the traditional meal we share. Thanksgiving Day is a uniquely Christian day. It makes absolutely no sense outside the context of faith. In the context of faith, however, it has great meaning."..from Methodist sermons, We all give thanks in our own way, a very special holiday.

Just informed by she who must be obeyed that we will have Brussels sprouts. I even invoked that I was born on Thanksgiving so I should have a little veto power.

that dog wont hunt.

In that case, may I suggest Brussels sprouts lardons? That way, if you don't like the sprouts, you at least get bacon or pancetta.
