Turkey Day
« on: Nov 24, 2010, 09:36:23 PM »
I haven't gotten any of the cooking done early so tomorrow is going to be interesting.

The Turkey goes in the oven at 8:30 a.m.

Then I'll start on the stuffing.  Unfortunately I didn't make the sourdough to make the stuffing with this year.  I wish I had.  But the Box will have to do this year.  With some sauteed onions and celery to help it along. 

It was a store bought pumpkin pie this year.  I still was not willing to try a pie crust.  I'll get there one day but not yet.

I have the yams and marshmellows so I'm good there and I'm pretty good at making gravy now so I'm not expecting any problems there.


How are the rest of you doing preparing your Thanksgiving feast?

I plan to start the deviled eggs right after the turkey goes in.  I won't do many or I won't have an appetite when the turkey gets done lol.

Oh no, I do an entire dozen eggs. Everyone eats them here, though I have to do half without pickle relish.

I have everything still to do since I ended up sick yesterday. The kids felt bad for me so they took the turkey home with them and they are cooking it. But the rest is up to me.

That's sweet they are doing the turkey.  I hope you feel much better today.  Ok, I'm going to take a short break and put in the eggs.  And try and find my recipe.  Since the old computer went down all my old recipes are gone.

My family keeps things simple.  Mom still does all the cooking for Thanksgiving.  James has a huge family so it is a potluck style. It is at his sister's house so she makes the turkey and ham but everybody brings something.  So, I am making a dish to pass.  As far as deviled eggs go,  my family and James' family loves them.  I could make 2 dozen and they would be gone in no time but we only ever make a dozen.

Yum! Deviled eggs! I dont do them for thanksgiving, like duh said I'd have no appetite for the turkey if i made and ate them.

I have a pumpkin I'm going to make soup out of. Then we're having Turkey, rutabaga, stuffing, cranberry sauce and mashed taters. Thats way more than enough for the two of us.

Usually, my daughter is here early helping out. But this year she was obligated to be somewhere else by noon. So, other than them taking the turkey home to cook, I am doing it all. Them doing the turkey though, is a big help. Frees up my oven.

I can't find my deviled egg recipe.  Grrrrrh.  I can't remember it all from memory and I know the one in the cookbook is not to my liking.  Any one have one to offer?

Mine is quite simple. I just mix mayo and pickle relish in with the yolk until I get the right texture. I like mine with some texture, not creamed. Yours was probably fancier than that.

Oh yea, I do sprinkle with peprika too. I tried it once with bacon bits and wasn't fond of it which surprised me 'cause I love bacon.

my eggs are yolk with mayo, mustard, and a little grated onion, or chives on top, then paprika on top of that. I dont like them with relish. My friend Kim makes them that way.

That is definitely in the plan, along with turkey salad, turkey/cranberry/stuffing sandwiches with mayo and anything else I can think of.  I must say that the generic turkey stuffing from food lion is way to salty for my tastes.
