I make 10-15 loaves of Finnish coffee bread for my sister's concert just after Thanksgiving. Have already started, made 10 so far but forgot the salt in 4 of them so have to scrap those (amazing how important 1/2 tsp of salt in a loaf of bread is). Also have to make cookies, brownies, cupcakes...if anyone has simple cookie recipes, please let me know! I don't mind making the bread but cookies are another matter.

For Thanksgiving itself, I always make brown rice stuffing, garlicy green beans, raw cranberry relish, and 3 or 4 pies. Dinner will be at my sister- & brother-in-law's.

Now this is my kind of thread! I love reading about what everyone prepares and eats.

Most of of our food has to be homemade because of my son's food allergy. So our list includes cranberry relish (homemade if I have time), butter rolls, mashed potatoes, sweet potato puff, green bean casserole, bread stuffing, artichoke spinach dip, salad, the turkey from our local meat market, and couple of other things. Desserts are pumpkin cheese cake roll, chocolate cream pie, pumpkin pie, apple pie, and blueberry pie.

Reading your replies just made me even more hungry ! Have you all heard about the 3 hour Thanksgiving meal recipes on 2 hour turkey ? Would you try it?

We will be making a fried turkey, small one since there are only be three of us. If you have not had one you must super yummy!! With the turkey we will be having home made cranberry relish, mash potatoes with home made gravy, DH will make his yummy herb stuffing, garlic string beans, a sweet potato or two and I will probably make a pumpkin pie and an apple pie. Does any one have a good recipe for apple pie? I have never made one before.

Here's how I feel about the whole turkey thing! Watch this!Wrestling the Turkey

Having said that, I WILL be cooking one for Thanksgiving - probably a 20 - 24 lb one - but I'll be using the old time tested 350 F temperature.

I am not quite sure what I'll be cooking this year but I'd better figure it out soon, huh? This is the first year in a while that I won't be making 600 pumpkin pies and 156 pecan pies all by myself the day before. DH is in charge of that this year!

I always make pounds and pounds of mushroom pate. All the relatives and my close neighbors get some to take home.

Otherwise a pretty standard Thanksgiving - a 24 pound turkey to feed 18 (which I always brine the night before), cranberry relish, mashed potatoes, yams, peas, Parker House rolls, probably a pumpkin roll cake for dessert.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. - Steve Jobs

That's a great video! And it's about the size turkey I try to get. But DH gets to wrestle it, that's his job on Thanksgiving.

Did you ever the Mr. Bean episode when he attempts to cook a turkey? I think it was actually for Christmas, as they obviously don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK, but he ended up with it on his head. Hilarious!
