Thanksgiving Dinner

Wed Nov 24, 2021 5:58 pm

What's going to be hitting the table tomorrow all?


I am seriously considering the Pineapple Casserole as a worthy last minute addition to a Turkey/Mashed potato/Green been casserole offering.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Beer can turkey…an adaptation of my beer can chicken recipe
12 hour slow cooked brisket
Sausage-Apple stuffing
Mushroom stuffing
Pumpkin pie
Pecan pie
Pumpkin loaf

That’s what I’m putting on the table.

Rumor has it, other folks will bring the stuff I’m not responsible for.

That’s a lot of extra sugar there. I get you need to balance the pineapple’s acidy taste, but that seems excessive.

You are also balancing the flour and cheese oils a bit I think as well.

Well I'm from the midwest and the wife is from the south and only agree on the dinner rolls, so I'll be cooking my "Yankee" Thanksgiving of:

Herb Roasted Turkey (2 day brine)
Mashed Potatos with homemade turkey gravy
Classic bread stuffing
Green bean casserole made with cream of mushroom

And she'll be cooking her classic southern Thanksgiving of:
Ham
Sweet Potatos
Cornbread dressing
Green bean casserole made with sour cream

Got me, she always gives me "you have to be from the south to understand" but she keeps talking about how it's traditional to eat ham on Thanksgiving.

I wanted to make collard greens but that'll have to wait for another time.

Right now, a turkey breast is going into the oven tomorrow afternoon and I'll try to bake a sweet potato casserole to go with it. It'll be very plain as I'm cooking just for myself.

I will be part of the typical northeastern USA Thanksgiving at the home of a sister-in-law's cousin (they have the largest house). For many of us, it will be like dancing on a minefield as have to deal with family issues, politics, sports, risks of getting Covid-19 as some have refused or have young children not yet able to be vaccinated. While there is joy like new children, new relationships of, major life changes, there will be sadness that some who participated in the past are no longer with us to celebrate.
While in the USA we have a formal holiday of Thanksgiving, many cultures and faiths have similar ways of giving thanks for the latest harvest, the gathering of family to celebrate. Ours has religious origins as well. It marks the start of the Christmas shopping season too (mostly the next day on 'Black Friday' or the following 'Cyber Monday'). For Native Americans, it has a seriously negative meaning, connecting the beginning of the European takeover of what would become the Americas and the demise of too many of them in that quest.

Well, we do Thanksgiving lunch, not dinner. But today's spread was

Honey-brined turkey breast
Yukon Gold mashed potatoes
Buttered peas & sliced carrots
Traditional cubed bread stuffing
Candied sweet potatoes

And, of course, pumpkin pie for dessert... specifically, our family's recipe, which is unlike anything you'll find in a store.

Just did lunch this year rather than dinner. MUCH better experience. Everyone showed up on time, nobody got too drunk that they became a hassle to handle, everyone helped clean up.

In my lifetime I can't even remember us having done Thanksgiving dinner. We're an early-bird family. We've generally been done with lunch no later than 1-ish and then the rest of the day has always just been veg out on the couch watching some specific holiday movies (Miracle on 34th Street, the black and white version, and The Bishop's Wife, for sure every year) followed by whatever the late football games are.

I've been doing keto/low carb for so long and basically lots of meat and since my mom is vegetarian and I didn't want her to cook we got a large Dominos pizza with thin crust, garlic sauce, olives, mushrooms, and feta cheese. It was very good and worth breaking my diet for. This will probably be the only time this year I eat pizza. I'm proud of the fact that during the pandemic I've lost weight and got my body fat down to single digit percentages since I never had any discipline with food or exercise. Today, it's gonna be fasting and coffee!

I am led to understand the Thanksgiving in Canada is held earlier than the one in the United states because of the metric system. Canada has ten months instead of 12. So, they have to have it earlier. :duck:

I'm a bachelor, so I usually end up getting invitations to the homes of others, which I gladly accept.

However, this year I was unable to drive. The reason being is I just had a rather nasty cancer removed from my right hand and I have skin grafts that are healing. My right hand is immobilized for the time being. Even with automatic transmissions and power steering I did not want to risk driving.

So, I stayed home and prepared wht I could with one hand. I made what many of you in the southwest will recognize: a "chilli size". For those of you not near a Big Boy or an IHOP, I will explain. You grill a hamburger patty and put it in a shallow bowl. You then put chili and beans over the top of it and add shredded cheddar cheese to taste. Some chopped raw onion on top of that and a grilled hamburger bun to the side, and you're all set. The hamburger buns serve the place of toast.

I had me a real party with a nice big portion of it, and sat and watched DVD's of a television series called Endeavour.

Instead of cooking a turkey, we bought a turkey breast and cooked it in a pressure cooker. It was so tender that it just about fell apart on its own. We also had dressing, yams, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and, of course, green bean casserole.

Get to have two Thanksgiving meals each year, one with my family and one with the in-laws. There are a lot of similarities (turkey, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole) and some differences (noodles in chicken broth versus macaroni and cheese, cornbread stuffing versus traditional stuffing, etc). And of course a nice slice of pumpkin pie with a generous dollop of whipped cream at the end of each meal!

I went to my local HEB grocery store the day after Thanksgiving. They had fresh turkeys marked down to 65¢ a pound. I'm going to pick one up and put it in my new smoker on Saturday.

But alas, I love food so much it’s hard to stick with it.

I couldn't get out to it, but the Friday's here in Sydney had a Thanksgiving dinner. I'm kind of curious as to what they consider an American Thanksgiving, they usually bastardized everything else.

My father doesn’t like turkey, so we had prime rib, Yorkshire pudding, salad and mashed potatoes , with pumpkin pie and homemade whipped cream for dessert. It was excellent!

Keto is a ripoff of Atkins. It's really the best diet. I have used it and I am on it again. I ate half what I usually do on Thanksgiving. Only cheated with stuffing and one piece of bread. No desert. It was amazing to leave without your pants bursting of feeling like crap for two days as your body detoxes the starch and sugar.

Last time I did keto it really did have my body ticking along nicely. I felt great and I was able to eat large meals and still lose about 20lbs in a little over 2 months and keep it off…. Only after maybe 4 or 5 months of eating large quantities of whatever I wanted did I gain it back and I really can’t blame anyone but myself for that. I’m losing weight again and I plan to go back to keto after the holidays.

The problem with these types of diets is that they’re not sustainable. You maintain them. So, you’re weight does the yo-yo.

The bottom line for weight loss? Calories in must be less than calories out. It’s simple math.

Of course, you need to eat the “right” foods to maintain some metabolic health.

I eat anything I want to eat, but in moderation. I didn’t overdo the turkey, brisket, sweet potatoes, breads, etc. I ate more than I would have in a normal meal…in fact I ate more through the whole day, but I didn’t feel bad or bloated. I paced myself and maintained some sense of balance in the food.

Sure calorie counting and moderation is nice and all but I accomplish nothing when I attempt it and never feel full or satisfied.

On keto I can eat meals that actually make me feel good and feel full, and I lose weight much faster.

I’ve done both. I’m aware of the science and there’s always someone who says keto is nonsense calories are all that matters but at the end of the day I’ll do what works best for me.

If I’m going to pig out Ill gain the weight back whether I lost it calorie counting or doing keto. I’d rather yo-yo a little within a healthy range and stay fit than be a prisoner to calories or diets anyway.

I thought with Atkins you can slowly re-introduce carbs back into your diet after the "induction phase" or whatever it's called. I wholeheartedly agree about the lack of bloating that comes from eating less carbs. My Indian relatives just don't get that. Mountains of rice and rice and no protein is why so many of my cousins are in their 20's and very fat. My mom is the exception even though she is vegetarian and extremely slim but she's an anomaly and she eats very small portions. One thing I noticed about Keto though, when I was getting chubby and trying to lose 30 lbs, was after sometime on it ,the weight loss plateaus and you need to have a cheat day and then kick the body back into ketosis and that will move you along nicely. But still, I went down from 195 to 173 in less than a month and a half which is still really good. Even through the pandemic keeping with keto and my cheat days I've only fluctuated between 155-158 lbs. And I'm 5'10 so that's fairly respectable I guess.
