Happy Thanksgiving!

We all do have things for which to be very thankful.

I'm doing the cooking for our family. Only going to be four of us this year. Managed to get an eleven pound turkey...which at the moment is getting crispy skinned in our oven.

Thanksgiving is my FAVORITE HOLIDAY...and I know it is the favorite of many.

Good to yez all.

@Frank Apisa,
How long do you think you'll be eating leftover turkey for, and will you be having turkey for Christmas too?

Have a lovely time watching the football or whatever. Actually this Friday, it will be the football, England v USA.

I mean it, have a lovely time.

Happy Thanksgiving! Or, as we like to call it (at times), Happy Precursor to Turkey Soup Day! Smile <3

Do you brine your turkey? I've done wet brines in the past, but read recently about how a dry brine (just a rub) is preferred, so I think I'll try that this Christmas. You coat it with sugar, salt and seasonings, three days prior to roasting. Sounds interesting. I hope to find a small turkey, too, but it's doubtful.

@Mame,
Our "small" turkey is 14.6 pounds, and we bought early... So, we'll have a ton o' leftovers.

@jespah,
Yeah, I'll start looking tomorrow. I'm hoping for around 10 lbs... but that may only be a chicken size.

I love turkey and turkey leftovers...but just for the next day. Then it gets old. But our cats love turkey too...so it does not go to waste.

Saw a terrific, very funny, discussion about "football" (American and the rest of the world) yesterday. It was terrific. Looking forward to todays match. England should kick our ass. We'll see.

Thanks, Jespah. I really do like turkey soup (with lots of barley)...so I am looking forward to that today. And the leftover dinner tonight will be welcome. Then "turkey" will lose some of that luster...and I will probably make some croquets and freeze them. Luckily, I managed to get a reasonably small turkey for my small group.

Wet brine for me. Started the brining on Wednesday early...and left it overnight. Tasted great!

You are looking for a turkey kinda late for Thanksgiving, aren'tcha?

Yeah, Izzy. Hadn't thought of that. You folks over there often have goose for Christmas, right? Or is that folklore?

@Frank Apisa,
Depends, goose was the staple in Victorian times, now people normally have goose or turkey for Christmas.

I'm thinking of doing a nut roast this year, we often have vegetarians/vegans over and that should make it a bit easier, but I'm not decided yet.

@Frank Apisa,
We don't bother with turkey at Thanksgiving so I'm looking early for Christmas because I want a small one.

@Mame,
You know we didn't make it to Tampa this year, my sister in laws boyfriend wanted them to go to his parents house in Miami for dinner. So I bought an 8lb. turkey breast, had it with mashed potatoes gravy oyster stuffing green beans and rolls. And of course pumpkin pie Cool I've never been a fan of turkey but I do like a turkey sandwich the next day.

@jcboy,
Yeah, turkey sandwich with dressing (stuffing) and cranberry jelly! Yum. We don't eat much pie but I made pecan tarts for the first time the other day for friends and neighbours. Boy, are they sweet! Too sweet for me and hubby. Ick. I'd much rather have pumpkin.
