But they make such a mess in the lounge.....
Phoenix - That sounds like a relaxing way to enjoy Thanksgiving and it is always nice to share with friends. Will you miss cooking a turkey?
eoe -- Your husband's cousin's house? Will the rest of the family be there, too? We do a lot of things with my husband's many cousins -- they're close in age and habits to us. It's good fun to hang out with them.

In sme British parishes they celebrate - like elsewhere in Europe - a "Harvest Thanksgiving" on a Sunday in late September or early October (German Catholics do it the first Sunday in October).
So.......if most of you have turkey for thanksgiving, what do you eat on Xmas day?
Wilma has me installing shingles and soffit ...
My cousins, one family or the other of which we used to visit each year on C. eve, always served baked ham, and sandwich fixings... then we drove freeways home. Up again early C day to get on freeway for a hundred miles to my inlaws, dagnabthem. They made chicken and dumplings, or pot roast, lime jello with mustard and mayo...
don't mean to make fun, hard to shut up. (Hard for them to get to our house.)
Marriage sometimes means not getting your own turkey until a few days later...
So, does free range have better flavor or not?

Free range and/or organic is by far the best choice.....if one can afford it.
That's true .... only due to bird flu precausions (and by law), all free range birds are now kept indoors (or at least should be kept indoors), here.

Piffka- Believe it or not, I have NEVER cooked a turkey in all the years that I am married to my husband. Seems that he is allergic to fowl, as well as shellfish.
There will be tons of family, several generations of children from adults to a brand new baby, aunts, Godparents, it's always crowded and festive, cousin is a wonderful cook and we always have a wonderful time.
Good luck with all your hard work.
Good luck to your mom, Aldistar.
I'm wondering... Watergate salad??? Is that Waldorf salad? Good play on words, even if it's inadvertent! I'm going to start calling it that.
I think gustav is a native Indian and doesn't really celebrate Thanksgiving.
Which brings us to Thanksgiving, that most indigenous of American holidays. This coming Thanksgiving of 2005, we call on all American Indian nations, institutions, organizations and programs to sponsor the Great American Indian Thanksgiving Teach-Out. Let's take the opportunity to reach out to the American public - from New York to California, from Minnesota to New Mexico - with the most comprehensive, the most intense educational campaign ever launched on American Indian peoples, cultures and issues.
Gustav, at least wash that meal down with some hootch. Don't be all defeatist about this...There you go...
