What is the best dish you ate for Thanksgiving?

My wife made about 12 different things for our Thanksgiving meal.

Has anyone ever heard of meat stuffing? We had that.
We had bread stuffing too.

Has anyone ever heard of carrots and turnips?
Mixed together almost like mashed potatoes.

What dishes did your family have, that might not be known to a lot of people.

My wife's family likes to take a walk after they eat, Personally, I like to take a nap, after watching the Patriots win.

I did not eat any dishes...

But I had some very tasty sweet potato casserole. It was different from any I have had before but very good.

Double Chocolate Pecan Praline cake wasn't bad either!

I'm not sure if it was a turkey

or a very large crow. I've eaten a lot of crow in my life so I don't really mind if it WAS a crow ;-)

Actually the best treat was something I did not eat at TG Day dinner. A contractor I do a lot of work for gave me a turkey but I was invited to dinner with friends. A housemate was set to cook a turkey in his smoker so he offered to do my bird at the same time. When I got home from dinner I pigged out all over again on smoked turkey :-)

Prime Beef Rib Roast, Au Jus

With twice baked, cheese potatoes (in the skins), baby french green beans with bacon and caramelized onions, tossed salad with homemade Caesar salad dressing. Desert was, individual apple crisps with a scoop of Bryer's Natural vanilla ice cream. Sorry folks, frozen mutant turkeys with the traditional trimmings, never see the inside of our home.

organic sweet potato pie, made w/ sweet potatoes from MY garden!

Digging up the seasons potato plot is like digging for buried treasure! Normally I make cream cheese pumpkin pie, but with all sweet potatoes I had on hand I chose instead to make sweet potato pie. I used this recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/sweet-pota... and it was AWESOME! I made homemade vanilla icecream and buttered pecans to top it. Everyone LOVED it and I was so proud to be able to say I had grow the main ingridient in my own back yard. ;-)

best dish?

I had three cups of coffee that gave me energy to post over a dozen leaflets on lamposts on a freezing evening.

Oh man...

...my older sister makes this killer mashed sweet potato topped with crushed pecans candied with brown sugar... unbeatable. Can't wait for leftovers later.

Baby red skined potatoes

mashed the old fashioned way with just a hint of garlic and a bit of butter. :)

My family and I all went to the restaurant this year and they served a fantastic spinach pie side with a smoked salmon that was spectacular!

What I really like

is pumpkin cheesecake, but I'm a big cheesecake fan.

Didn't get enough of that this year.

Probably a good thing.

I'm a big fan

of classic mashed potatoes. Peeled and boiled potatoes whipped with whole milk, real butter and salt, served with gravy. I could have it everyday, but I usually save it for holidays. Happy Thankgiving, everyone!

The mashed potatoes w/carmelized onions ...

and the gravy made from the pan drippings--ummm, yummy. For desert, homemade lemon squares and pumpkin pie--Ohooo, so good!

This is the first year

we had a brined turkey. It was great. Even the white meat is really moist. Even left over it's not dry.

Great grandma's orange cranberry relish

My mother recently found the recipe in a box at my grandmother's house and she made it old style with the crank grinder. I have no idea if my mom did it justice but it was darn good.

I have made that many times,

I have made that many times, but use an old hand chopper. I do not know why, but that is how it has always been made..just chop an entire orange into a bowl of cranberries and put sugar on it. Takes forever :). This year, though, I was alone, and ate brie cheese on apples, grapes and french bread. Nothing fantastic to report..

Never heard of that before,

but it sounds delicious.

this year

the drive home fell into the unjustifiable expense category.
so it was two bowls of:

and a walk with my dog among the unknown soldiers of the Continental Army. made even better with the unexpected snow.
until it turned to rain.

muesli

sounds interesting. I doubt, "Stop and Shop"(NE food chain) will have it, so I appreciate the link.

super fresh

(also a NE chain) carries a limited selection of their products.

I didn't eat any dishes this year

I just stuck with the food that was on em' haha

Man

The Turkey this year was incredible...I am so easy to please, my favorite dish is my Dads "Maine" mashed potatoes...made with whole milk, sugar, and real butter and ground pepper. I am now in a comma.

In a coma?

LOL, I love Thanksgiving.

It was the Peanutbutter chocolate cake, 8)
