Did you eat any of these foods at Thanksgiving dinner?

Since it's a busy time and an eating time, here's an easy poll to take in the left column. It's okay to pick multiple answers as long as they don't conflict. You can also leave a comment about a particularly favorite dish, if you wish.



  1. For dinner, I fixed turkey, mashed potatoes, candied yams (with mini-marshmallows, of course,) green bean casserole, tossed salad and gravy. (The kids had their own dish -mac and cheese.) I forgot to put cranberry sauce out which is one of my daughter's things with a turkey dinner and she didn't even miss it! I fell asleep 2 hours after we ate, slept over 3 hours then and got up, made a fresh pot of coffee and had a big old slab of apple-cranberry pie I made which turned out very good. (Also have plain apple as well as pumpkin pie too -wanna stop by for coffee and pie -or any leftovers, cause we do have plenty of that! LOL
    It was a very nice meal, despite the fact that the grandchildren eat very little of what we consider the traditional Thanksgiving feast. Maybe next year, huh?
    Hope you and your husband -and can't forget Rascal either -had a great Thanksgiving too and plenty to be thankful for.

  2. We ate dinner with friends and took pre-dinner snacks, so I fortunately did not have cook this year.
    But pumpkin pie and black olives are Thanksgiving staples for me!

  3. What did I eat? The traditional, too much!

    We had the turkey and dressing, but I peeled enough potatoes to feed the neighborhood and then some. No holiday meal is complete without the cranberries though and we had ours cooked. I have the sauce in the fridge and another bag just to eat.

  4. Turkey, with sweet potato pie covered in melted marsh mallows, green bean casserole with french onions, Brussels sprouts, stuffing and gravy. Followed by apple strudel and icecream, washed down with a decent beer (I'm blogging on UK beers V US beer this Sunday) Of course that is what was cooked. I managed to eat most of it, but the rest of the family are much much more picky... Again something that seems to be spreading through kids this day and age.

  5. Never having learned to cook for just one, yesterday I fixed enough food for a platoon of Marines. I started off with a whole chicken (it didn't make sense for me to get a huge turkey) and accompanied that with dressing, my mother's "cheesy potatoes" (potatoes with a white sauce, mixed with Velveeta), deviled eggs and broccoli.

    This was topped off by a couple of chocolate cream pies and an after-dinner glass of German mosel wine. (I spent a few years in Germany, and acquired a taste for German white wine there).

    I also videoed myself preparing some of the repast, as a way of being a bit closer to my mother and brothers some 1500 miles away. If I send them a video, I figure it'll be the next best thing to actually being there for the holidays. If only I could share the food with them--I have enough leftovers to last me a very long time.

  6. I made turkey that had been injected with a beer-cayenne pepper-garlic powder mixture, green bean and onion casserole, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy, fruit salad, baked yams with mini marshmallows, pumpkin pie topped with sky-high whipped cream!
