Isnt that always the way, missing one or two things to make it.

We had a great turkey day.  Ginger was missing though.

I couldn't resist.  What did you have for thanksgiving. 

Here it was turkey, dressing, boiled potatoes, stuffed acorn squash, zucchini casserole.  The cranberry sauce was in the stuffed acorn but I'm glad I got a number of cans because I love leftover turkey, cranberry, dressing, and mayo sandwiches.  Yum!

We don't eat turkey so we had steak, lasagna, green beans, deviled eggs, mashed potatoes, dressing, gravy, cranberries, salad, rolls, brownies, ice cream.

We had the Thanksgiving buffet at Shoney's. I had ham, cranberry sauce, little green limas, rice, and collard greens. Two full plates filled me up with no room for dessert. We carried Virginia a plate, too... :)

Yay! No cooking or cleaning for me. :good2: Boo! No leftovers to nibble on... :razberry:

Do you want me to send you some leftovers?  i've got some.  I even have one leg left. 

I love deviled eggs.

What kind of dressing?

Everyone has been teasing me about stove top stuffing.

Hey, I like stove top.

We had turkey, mashed taters, sweet taters, green beans, deviled eggs and croissants for our bread. There was also 3 different kinds of pie and some banana pudding. I was too full of the meal to eat dessert. But sure ate some Friday. lol We're still working on the leftovers.
Dear Lord, On this day, please wrap your arm around my shoulder and keep your hand over my mouth.  Amen

Me too.  Sharon brought me some homemade pumpkin pie.  She roasts the pumpkins and skins them for the puree.  Can you imagine.  She knows I like Libby's pumpkin pie recipe and she can make hers taste just like it.  It is amazing.  This year she did it with honey and it was just as good.  She does that because her husband and I are diabetic and honey is suppose to be better than sugar about raising the blood sugar.  Isn't that thoughtful?  She also brought me some potato soup.  She knows I love it.

There is not much more satisfying than potato soup.

I'm the only one in my family who eats pumpkin pie so I try not to make it or buy it because I'll eat the entire thing - seriously.  No control.

The dressing is one I saw Rachael Ray make one time.  Pretty good if you like dressing.

I am happy eating an entire pumpkin pie.  I just space it out over a week.  I always run out of whipped cream.  Not sure how that happens,...not.

I can't make it last a week.  If it's there I'm compelled to eat it.  Better with whipped cream of course.

we ate thursday at ellie's inlaw's brother's house.  there was turkey, ham, 2 types of sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, mac N cheese, brussel sprouts, deviled eggs, scalloped potatoes, mashed potatoes, 2 kinds of rolls, several types of salads, some sweet, some regular, 2 kinds of dressing, at least 15 kinds of desserts, and i know i have missed half of the "main meal" items. it was a dinner table, with the leaf in, full.  the salads, bread, crock pot items, paper products, and desserts were on counters and/or in a different room.

thanksgiving night we just nibbled on junk food, then on friday we had t-day leftovers at Charlie & Norma's.  that was smoked pork, dressing, sweet potato casserole, something green (i am drawing a blank) and i had brought fudge with me to both places.

now, there are no leftovers :BigGrin:
