The traditional "What are you making for Thanksgiving?" thread

And who are you having Thanksgiving with?

My partner has ordered from a restaurant a turkey with thyme gravy, cornbread dressing, garlic mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet potato casserole, roasted brussel sprouts and pecan pie.

How about you?

It'll all taste "catered".

I agree R! but it was what my partner wanted. I wasn't bragging. I was stating facts.

What are you having?

We had the traditional meal about a week ago--I warmed up a bone-in turkey breast--good. The leftovers were even better, for some reason! We're getting two meals delivered from a local eatery on Thursday. We'll see how it is.

I will be alone, but I'm going to make a turkey breast, pumpkin pie, and roast veg. I haven't had a traditional Thanksgiving in years, but I feel like celebrating this year. Celebrating the upcoming removal of a cancer from the White House.

It will just be me and my partner.

i am making coq au vin or roast chicken served with mashed potatoes.

For dessert, an apple pie which is in my freezer.

I don't really feel like running around to find all the ingredients for a traditional thanksgiving. I'm not craving it either.

Here in Paris, Picard is running a special on poulet de Bresse so that's the centerpiece of the Thanksgiving menu. Also picked up a can of Libby's pumpkin to make a pie, a can of Ocean Spray cranberry sauce (not the jello kind), and Stove Top stuffing (because the fancy stuffing last year with prunes was a disaster).

Sourcing a deep dish pie plate in France was difficult; Pyrex does not make the same dimensions for Europe. Found an Emile Henry pie plate that is a bit less deep than the one they make for the US market. If all goes well, I will attempt to send a slice of the pumpkin pie by mail to a shut in.

The dog already knows something is up. It is very satisfying to cook for a rapt audience.

I’m having Thanksgiving outside on the porch because know. So it’s supposed to be rainy but I have a big ole roof. There’s some immediate family and two Bangladeshi med students coming. Yum!

I'm kind of looking forward to not having a big family get together, just me and my boyfriend.

It's just going to be turkey breast, stuffing, pecan and pumpkin pie. I'll make a cheeseball and some other appetizers to snack on through the weekend.

I'm going to try and prepare everything except the turkey the day before and just have a very relaxing day.

I wonder why extended families who must isolate due to Vivid don't Zoom together and cast to the large screen. They could still have Thanksgiving together that way - well, at least virtually.

Boneless turkey breast is the best!
