Well, my family didn't have turkey this year. We had pork, chicken, and duck though. So, anyway did you have turkey on Thanksgiving?

So, anyone not have a Thanksgiving dinner?

Well, relatives from both sides of my family decided to have a Thanksgiving lunch instead of a Thanksgiving dinner. Anyone else celebrate Thanksgiving at a time other than dinner on Thanksgiving day?

No. We have this lasanga tradition. Do not know how it started but it happens. So I don't ask any more.

I made the first Turkey of my life and it kicked ass. I made everything from scratch, my first time for each one of these -- herb brined turkey in pear gravy, potato and mushroom gratin, candied yams, apple walnut stuffing. It fucking rocked and once again proves that in the world of food, I am a golden god.

We ate about 4:00 this time, but usually it's been more like 2:00. I like having it early. You can take a nap and then eat some more around dinner time

Oh, and congratulations on your first turkey, Bushdog. That's cool!

And of course the mandatory gravy!

My dad made the Turkey this year. I usually make it, but he wanted to. Actually did a pretty good job considering he uses no spices. He cooked it in one of those cooking bags and actually came out fairly good.

I made gouta cheese mashed potatoes, glazed carrots and a desert that is hard to describe.

Got to watch most of the Cowboy game, had a small group of friends over and it was a very nice Thanksgiving.

Those remotes look a bit crunchy.



We went to a friend's house and they cooked a free-range turkey. Tasted good to me.

They also made stuffing and mashed potatoes.

Mrs. Pusser made green beans, asparagus, amazing sweet potatoes with brown sugar and marshmallows, and a pumpkin pie. We also brought an apple cinnamon pie from Costco.

I grilled a 20 pounder on my Weber. It was awesome. I just finished my first turkey sandwich(es).

Edit to add: My wife also made a very delicious pumpkin cheescake.
