    Does the cook do any special family recipe or style?

    All while growing up, our house was the gathering place for the extended family. My mom was always the cook with my late aunt helping out when she arrived. Now that I have my own family and I live away from my family, I do all the cooking while my wife preps and makes the pie. I use my moms stuffing recipe that she perfected over the years by chance, so my dinner is virtually a carbon copy of what I grew up with.

    I just put a 24lb turkey in the oven. We gather at my Brother's house. We will have 2 turkeys and good side dishes.

    Besides the turkey, I'm making 2 pumpkin pies with black walnuts.

    My Sister in law makes great stuffing. She won't give up the recipe, but I know there is apple cider vinegar and walnuts, cranberries and apples. I think she puts some sort of alcohol in there too. It will be a good day today! :lunch:

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    With my mom being sick and all and it taking its toll on my family's psyche, we're just gonna order in Chinese food.
    Unless there is a pizza place open. I'm craving a pepperoni pizza with extra cheese.

    My wife uses beer on our turkey. It comes out with an awesome flavor.

    I usually go with vagina for dessert.

    Yeah, she's been in hospitals and now a nursing home for so-called rehab. It's been a really stressful couple of months.
    Thanks.
    As long as I have my wine, I don't care what I'm eating. :)

    I have a friend coming over to help with my hair and another one coming over to pick out my outfit for today.
    My wife will be putting on a titty dress and we are headed to our local French restaurant.
    The chef is going to open up early for us because he has some special dishes prepared for us.
    Naturally, we will begin our meal with a portion of almonds.
    Then we will move on to a beautiful soup and follow that up with everyone's favorite traditional Thanksgiving dish. Scrambled eggs and truffles.
    By then we will be much too full for desert so we will enjoy a cup of hot water with a delicious mint leaf.
    Then we will give the chef a handshake, promise him some plugs and head back home.
    My wife will strip down to her bra and panties and takes some pictures with the cats and I will go to my private bathroom with my ipad and finish the evening.
    Another perfect day.

    I think we've run the full circle now.....growing up in Chicago both sides of the family would get together at my nanna's house.....about 60 Greeks and Italians.... all the men smoking and drinking ouzo and all the women fighting in the kitchen..all us kids running around. The dining room table was covered with food and there was literally no place to sit. I'm not a religious guy anymore but I still get choked up at the memory of those immigrants who had come from poverty, war, and terrible conditions to this great land America. Standing and holding and hands and literally weeping with thanks at the opportunities this country had given them to find work in car factories, restaurants, and grocery stores.

    Then I grew up and married a WASP who can't cook worth a crap. The big Greco-Italian feast has slowed down over the years. Most of the matriarchs and patriarchs are long dead. Just not the same. Lot of work for my small family to do.

    So today we're doing an 8 mile Turkey Trot race to start the day.....then we're tailgating with some friends at Jerryworld. They do a huge thanksgiving spread every year and we will then just sit in our chairs under a big tent and watch the game in HD on the dish. It's quite a scene. Generators, catered food, even custom made his and hers porta Pottys) Then leave at half and catch the end at home. (Jerry gets $340 per ticket....face value just in case you wanted to know.)

    And soon enough I'm sure my kids will end up getting married and having kids and then of course I'll be grandpa making the turkey. Circle of life, my friends.

    99 cents is a darn good price for a 40 year old tv dinner in 2014.

    My girl cooked up a great turkey yesterday. Ate a huge meal last night and got all the work over with. That just leaves football, beer and my spot on the couch for today.

    I found out that my car needs a new battery when I went to start it early this AM so, I will be having Thanksgiving alone this year...:crying: But, I'm making a "beautiful" beef stew, so that should make up for some of the loneliness. Well, that and getting drunk while watching "Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire" later on this evening.

    My girl friend wants to cook for me and I will eat every bite with a smile on my face whether it kills me or not.
