Well, American Thanksgiving anyway - I know you Canadians did yours in October.

What are you doing for Thanksgiving? Traveling, hosting? Who's coming, who's cooking, what are you making?

Now's a good time to trade ideas and recipes as well.

This will be our first Thanksgiving without Christine :-( It was just gonna cost too much for her to come home for a week then fly her home again Dec 18 for winter break

We are going to see Harry Potter on Thanksgiving day

We don't care about turkey (just a big chicken and i am tired of chicken)

so we do things like crackers, cheese, wine, hummus, pita, some desserts, stuffed french toast for breakfast

I am surprising Christine I ordered her a Honey baked ham breakfast (honey baked ham, coffee cake, english muffins, jam) should last her awhile serves 3-4

Hubs and I are going an hour away to my Aunt's. Last year there were 24 people there, all the standard fixings...plus my aunts' secret smoked macaroni and cheese which is always the biggest hit - :drool3:

Later that night, I'm picking up two girlfriends and we're making the 2 hour train ride to Chicago for BLACK FRIDAY, DOWNTOWN CHICAGO on the Magnificent Mile!! Call me crazy, I know! I love Chicago at Christmas time, it's beautiful, the lights, the window shopping - it just wouldn't be complete without a stop at the Ghiridelli Chocoate station and a trip to Water Tower Place. My hubs thinks I'm absolutely :nuts:...

When I was a child my grandparents lived on Lake Shore drive in Chicago, and we went there for Christmas. They don't live there anymore but something about it still gives me that Christmas feeling.

Thanksgiving to me is just the kickoff to Christmas!

I guess I should answer my own questions, lol.

We will be going to my great-uncle's house as usual. Almost every female contributes something - trust me it's safer that way. There will be around 20 adults + 20 kids. We are very serious about menu planning and always have far too much food.

So far our menu planning looks like this, based on our Facebook messaging:

Vanessa: Stuffed Mushrooms
Ham
Nutella Cakeballs

Dawn: Turkey
Sweet Potatoes
Green Bean Casserole
Apple Crumb Pie
Cupcakes
Crumb Cake

Sharon: Stuffing
Something else

Lisa: Cranberry Salad
Mashed Potatoes
Vegetable Platter
Desserts?

Donna: Stuffing
Appetizers; Nuts, crackers, cheese, etc.

Meredith: Finger Foods
Cherry Pie
??????

Jennifer: Turkey and gravy
Biscuits
Roasted Butternut Squash Soup
Turnip
Brussel Sprouts
Corn pudding
Various other vegetables
Krysten's Birthday Cake
Pumpkin Cheesecake

This will be Austin's 1st Thanksgiving so he will have to take a pic with the turkey leg, it's our weird tradition.

I don't know if you remember when the twins shared the cakeballs recipe a million years ago. I'm just substituting Nutella for the frosting. I haven't tried it yet but I'm sure it'll be good. :D

Cakeballs link: http://siouxcountry.com/showpost.php?p=102867&postcount=1236

Note - I roll them in sifted powdered sugar when they're ready; I didn't find covering them in chocolate or sprinkles, etc stayed well. I think I'll use vanilla cake.

My mom and dad are flying down from Boston, and my big bro is flying in from England. We're going to my boyfriend's sister's house and we will be with Jim, his sister, and their dad (his mother passed away several years ago). I'll bring the dog, too, and make sure he's all dressed up and has a napkin to tuck into his shirt. Even Mr. Trotter gets turkey on thanksgiving.

I'll be making my mom's stuffing, which has breakfast sausage in it. It's orgasmic. I'll also be making the potatoes, gravy, and cranberry sauce. And yes, I'll be making that all myself. I went to cooking school when I was getting my nutrition degree and I love to tear it up in the cocina!! Jim will BUY a dessert b/c he's too lazy to cook. I'm hoping someone makes veggies - I feel naked w/out something green on my plate :)

Thanksgiving this year is going to be totally different from my past years. We're going to my fiance's sister's house...everyone bringing a dish to pass. Dan volunteered my Pumpkin Moose. It's like a mix between pudding and pie... with gingersnaps as the crust! It's sooooooo good! I can't wait!

OMG Shawn, that sounds fabulous. You have such good taste in food. HA :p

I am going to my mothers house and it's going to be a small family affair. My mother can't cook so it's usually me cooking and am still trying to think of what to make but she is on her own w/ the turkey and stuffing. To me it's about the sides anyway. Definitely sweet potatoes, leeks with fennel and apples (braised) and rolls with butter as I LOVE bread. Also a chocolate mousse cake that my mother gets every year. Now that I'm hearing Shawn's dessert I'm thinking of making something I got from Paula Dean a few years ago which is a pumpkin truffle.

It's basically a layer of vanilla pudding, followed by a layer of canned pumpkin and then a ton of ginger bread and whipped cream on top of it. You keep layering it with whipped cream being your top portion and then you put some crushed ginger snaps on top to make it look fancier. Really good stuff.

SanDgroovy, have you had one of those before? I gave up poultry a couple of months ago and was thinking of buying one of those for myself (just to freak my mother out even more as she thinks I eat weird anyway), and am curious on what it tastes like. Sorry to hear you are working that day.

ShawnCarla
11-16-2010, 01:12 AM
Ask and you shall receive!

Pumpkin Moose... is it Moose or Mouse? I always get confused :nuts:

1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
1 can pumpkin puree (15 ounces)(not pumpkin pie mix)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground clove
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 package instant vanilla pudding mix (5.1-ounces)
3 cups heavy cream
1 box Ginger Snaps (12 ounces)

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk, pumpkin,
spices, pudding mix and a good splash of water (about 1/4 cup). Using an electric mixer,
beat everything together until smooth and thickened, about 2 minutes. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
Gently fold the whipped cream into the pudding mixture until blended and no streaks of pudding remain.

To assemble, layer the cookies and pudding mixture in a serving dish
(or several individual dishes) in whatever fashion you like. Cover the
puddings with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 and up to 8 hours
(you want the ginger snaps to soften up from sitting in the pudding mixture).

Top with some ground cinnamon or more whipped cream if you like, and serve cold.




And if you love pumpkin like I do, here's another recipe I highly recommend for pumpkin pancakes. Trust me, these are phenomenal and you only need one cuz they're SO filling...but you'll want more. I think my Dad ate 10 of them whipped cream and all last Christmas.

The whipped cream is ESSENTIAL! :D

Nutmeg whipped cream
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons white sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Place whipping cream in a small, deep, chilled bowl. Add the 2 tablespoons sugar, vanilla,
and nutmeg; beat using a mixer with chilled beaters on medium-high speed until soft peaks form.

Pumpkin Pancakes
INGREDIENTS (Nutrition)
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar



DIRECTIONS
In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. Combine the flour,
brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt, stir into the
pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto
the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

My husband and I are doing the music for our Thanksgiving mass that morning...then for dinner....

We went from a plan for three of us...to having to modify to accomodate FOURTEEN!!!!!

My husband, youngest daughter, and I...add to that...our oldest daughter, our son, two of our son's frat buddies who can't go home for Thanksgiving, two friends, one of their daughters, one of her friends, and new next door neighbors, and their daughter!!!!

Doing the FULL, traditional Thanksgiving dinner...
A 28 lb turkey (I felt like Scrooge on Christmas looking for the biggest one)
My Dad's stuffing (with sausage, cranberries, wild rice, pecans, etc)
Scalloped corn
Green beans
Mashed potatoes and gravy
Candied yams
Rolls
Cranberries
Pumpkin, pecan, and apple pies
Oh..and 6 GALLONS of our traditional holiday punch that gets drained every time I make it!!! (silly, simple stuff...but everyone loves it)

I'm a little overwhelmed with the prospect of it. I have a countertop roasting oven for the turkey, but a small oven...so two crock pots will be coming out and I'm seriously toying with buying a countertop convection oven.

Thanks for the Nutella cake ball recipe Vanessa! I am going to try to make those for Thanksgiving. Everyone in my family has a special "thing" to bring. My older sister has pecan pie, my younger sister has a potato casserole and I get assigned to bring cups, forks and plates. Maybe the cake balls will be my new "thing"! :)

We drive a half hour to my parents house for lunch and then two hours to my husbands grandmothers house for dinner. We stay stuffed and happy ALL day!

Mmm...Thanksgiving! It's my favorite food holiday of the year!! Everyone's menus sounds sooo good and so different from what we eat down here in Texas! The dressing with sausage sounds delicious, Beth! My son and I are driving down to my dad's Thanksgiving Day which is 2 hours away from Austin. Seeing as my step-mom can't cook, my brother-in-law will usually cook the turkey. Sometimes it's roasted and sometimes its fried...very tasty either way. My great-aunt Nancy will no dount make her cornbread casserole which is a little bit of heaven. There will be the standard green bean casserole, candied sweet potatos, fruit salad, mashed potatoes, rolls, broccoli and rice casserole, and of course the canned cranberry gel. OMG...I could eat the whole can. For desserts, we will have pumpkin and pecan pies, and then my Aunt Nancy will make her always delicious and never duplicated chocolate sheet cake that she always decorates with turkeys that she makes out of Keebler cookies, candied corn, and cake icing...very corney but cute.

Friday we are having a family outdoor photo shoot with my sisters, brother-in-law, and my son.

And Saturday...we eat ALL over again with my Mom's family! OMG...it's going to be awful. I think I'm going to make a sweet potato pie.

Oh...and to make matters worse...we had a team bootcamp challenge and the team that lost has to track down everything eaten over the holiday (Calories, Fat, Carbs, Protein) and compile it into one huge spreadsheet. And guess whose team lost?? That's right...this girl right here! HA!! I've already warned them that there will be a couple bottles of wine, lots of dessert, and lots of stuffing...this girl isn't holding back! :D

I think I'm going to try making this, but will likely use applesauce instead of the olive oil and may or may not use the brown sugar. I've become a big fan of using apples in place of sugar in recipes. We shall see. I think this would be a nice post-workout treat that day and I could bring it to morning coffee for my friends and family to enjoy :)

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Bread
1 cup packed organic light brown sugar
4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 cup light olive oil
1 tablespoon Ener-G Egg Replacer whisked with 1/4 cup warm water (or two large eggs, beaten)
1 tablespoon bourbon vanilla extract
1 cup pumpkin puree (canned pumpkin is fine)
1/4 teaspoon light tasting apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 cup millet flour
1/4 cup sorghum flour
1/2 cup tapioca starch or potato starch
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or gluten-free Pumpkin Pie Spice blend
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Use a large loaf pan and bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven, for 50 to 55 minutes, until the top is firm but gives slightly to a gentle touch.

Oh, and hopefully we are still having turkey at my house. My sister adopted a turkey (she's big into animal rights) and she's trying to convince my mom to make tilapia. I don't want tilapia again this year, so I may have to make my own turkey. YIKES!

I was also thinking of what else I want, and I'm thinking of having roasted butternut squash with cranberries, my version of sweet potato casserole (I'm simple, no need for butter), green beans (my fave), gluten free stuffing (with turkey), and maybe some gluten free apple crisp (just some baked oats with apples)...can't ya tell I'm using it as a refeed day? LOL

My hubby and I are super blessed to be on the west coast this year for Turkey day! My grandparents are driving the 13 hours to Monterey, CA to come spend it with us. My Grandma is the master of homemade rolls and pies, so I am excited for her to come show me her tricks. We are also having some Navy friends come over since they are not going home for the holidays. Should be a fun time with lots of good friends, puppies (six to be exact), and food!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! What great recipes!! I'd share my cake balls recipe but they are not in the least bit healthy! But damn are they good. If you are interested...let me know. You can make them for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. For Halloween you make them as ghosts. For Turkey day you make them as the female pilgrim. And for Xmas you make them as Snowmen! LOL!

We are heading up to Neebish Island, Michigan. It's on the Saint Mary's River as you get close to Sault (sounds liks Soo) Saint Marie, Michigan and Ontario. All the Iron Ore ships go up to Lake Superior on the Northeast side of the island and down towards Lake Michigan on the Soutwest side of the island. Ferry to get there...we have to leave no later than 9:30am tomorrow morning because it takes about 8.5 hours to get there and the last ferry runs to the island at 6pm. I'm looking forward to it while at the same time not looking forward to it...long story.

Scout is looking forward to it (if she had the capacity to) as there will be 2 other Springer Spaniels and loads of other 'youngish' dogs there for her to play with.

Who knows what we will be eating. There will be lots of food. But more importantly, there will be lots of drinking and lots of Euchre to play!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Sounds interesting! I need to try tofu period.

My fam usually comes in town for Thanksgiving and we gather at my aunt and uncle's house. We all bring food so that no one person has to do the bulk of the work. My duties - mac & cheese and oreo cheesecake.

Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
