Thanksgiving Favorites?

Unread postby Triple-S » Sat Nov 15, 2008 12:45 am

It's coming up and I was curious whats some of your guys favorites?

I'm probably in the minority for this, because in every other place I've seen this dish is usually not well liked. But Damn, Green Bean Casserole is underrated as hell. Used to hate it, but for some reason grew a taste for it. Another one is Celery with cream cheese, and of course the turkey itself.

100 % dies in the wool straight up conservative traditionalist.

If there is anything but turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes with it all swimming in gravey and corn on the side I have no use for it.

And don't give me that Martha Stewart stuffing BS . Crumbs + sage + onions + parsely + chicken broth PERIOD!

Truer words never spoken.

I can eat that meal all day on Thanksgiving, and I don't care if I cannot move afterward or not.

~Turkey
~gravy made with the drippings
~Stuffing cooked inside the turkey, with all the gizzards
~sweet potatoes
~corn
~all of it drenched in salt and pepper

Watching the hapless Lions play one of the better games of the year. Cowboys at 4 against someone good. Laying on the couch all day and letting the women of my family cater to me. Going right back to the couch after dinner, watch more football with the fellas, and vegetate on the couch for an hour with a couple cold beers before the wave of homemade pies come.

Love Thanksgiving.

I'm with you guys.

But the stuffing has to have a little italian sausage in there and, like Swerb says, I prefer the stuffing cooked in the bird. Especially the crispier stuff on the outside.

Gotta also be a great loaf of alesci's bread.

My God. The turkey, potatoes, stuffing and gravy are all even better the day after or two when you want something to eat while watching football.

Good call, but to be honest I could settle for Stove Top stuffing from the box, I wouldn't want to but I could survive if all the rest of the traditional parts of the meal were in place.

I love Italian sausage in stuffing.

What really puts my Turkey Day over the top now a days is having Friday off, if I don't I am a completely different person.

Any body out there still do the turkey bowl? Tackle? My group still does, we've incorporated a nice evolution of youth into our tradition. I personally had to retire from the tackle edition though, did it until 33, why I have no idea but did it none the less.

It tastes so much better as stuffing and not dressing but the chefs swear it dries the bird.

And you can't forget the 8PM turkey sammich after the 2PM dinner.

Green Bean Casserole is my favorite.

Question concerning Thanksgiving, Am I the only one who mixes everything up in to a big thanksgiving slurry and eat it? I love the taste of it all together, I'd almost rather put it in the blender and drink it up as a shake. Grab some turkey slobbered in gravy with mashed taters, stuffin', green bean casserole all stuffed in to one bite... favorite part is taking a hot buttered roll and sopping up the entire plate with it.

Then the beer and football... ahhh... cant wait. The new wife said her family watches xmas movies and not football on thanksgiving like the Santa Claus and Miracle on 34th street... her family is in for a tradition change... What American doesnt watch football on Thanksgiving, it is as much a part of thanksgiving as Turkey, Great Lakes Christmas Ale and snoring uncles on the couch.
In the end, we're all "only for a limited time," you guys.

"The Thanksgiving Song"

"They wanna hear the thanksgiving song! All right.."
"This is uhh, This is the Thanksgiving Song"
"I hope you enjoy it."

[Starts playing]
Love to eat turkey
Love to eat turkey

[Shout from Crowd:] "I love you Adam!"
[Adam Sandler:] "Ohhh, I love you!"
Love to eat turkey
'Cause it's good
Love to eat turkey
Like a good boy should
'Cause it's turkey to eat
So good

[Adam Sandler:] "That clappin's messing my head up man. I appreciate it.
But I was trying to think of the next line and all I hear is clapping.
Here we go... Thanks anyways"

Turkey for me
Turkey for you
Let's eat the turkey
In my big brown shoe
Love to eat the turkey
At the table
I once saw a movie
With Betty Grable
Eat that turkey
All night long
Fifty million Elvis fans
Can't be wrong
Turkey lurkey doo and
Turkey lurkey dap
I eat that turkey
Then I take a nap

Thanksgiving is a special night
Jimmy Walker used to say Dynomite
That's right
Turkey with gravy and cranberry
Can't believe the Mets traded Darryl Strawberry
Turkey for you and
Turkey for me
Can't believe Tyson
Gave that girl V.D.

White meat, dark meat
You just can't lose
I fell off my moped
And I got a bruise
Turkey in the oven
And the buns in the toaster
I'll never take down
My Cheryl Tiegs poster
Wrap the turkey up
In aluminum foil
My brother likes to masturbate
With baby oil
Turkey and sweet potato pie
Sammy Davis Jr.
Only had one eye

Turkey for the girls and
Turkey for the boys
My favorite kind of pants
Are corduroys
Gobble gobble goo and
Gobble gobble gickel
I wish turkey
Only cost a nickel
Oh I love turkey on Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

I'm hoping to create a new Thanksgiving favorite here today. It's just me and my wife, so we're going simple. The main course is going to be a turkey, ham, and swiss stromboli, with a mayonnaise-mustard-Worcestershire dipping sauce. I'll know in a few hours if I have a hit.

Thats got to be the tightest life you just hop underneath the ground and go! No traffic, no Mass pike, no tolls, no taking Yankee hats off- just underneath the ground…BAM…carrots…Albuquerque.

Turkey, dressing, salad, corn, rolls, OLIVES.......

Have mercy.....

One thing I never thought I'd like until I somehow managed to try one a few years back.....Pickled Eggs......

Man them damn things are good.....

I'm not fat or a big egg eater, but them damn things I have to hold myself back on....

Reminds me of Larry the Cable Guy......he goes to the Dr's cuz of his weight....

Doc sez, "First thing you gotta do is lay off those eggs, son!"

Larry sez, "Why doc, is my cholesterol too high?"

Doc sez , "No, it's those damn farts of yours, their killing us all here!"

Obviously late weighing (pardon the pun) in here on this topic.

We always have the whole feast. However, I could just eat turkey white meat, homemade mashed potatoes and gravy all day and be thrilled. I always take like one spoonful of everything else to keep everyone else happy.

My wife makes homemade apple sauce that morning that is hot and mmmmmm.

She also makes a choco-pecan pie. Hot, topped with a scoop of ice cream.
