Do you have a special food item that you serve (or like to eat) at Thanksgiving? Let's share some of our personal Thanksgiving eats!
Soon, we should receive a package in the mail - home made lefsa from my MIL. Lefsa is my hubby & kids personal favorite.
Me, I just eat..its all good!
i make homemade cranberry sauce. just stick a bag of cranberries in a big saucepan with 1/4 cup of sugar (the bag says use one cup, but that is way too sweet) and half a cup of water. add some fresh orange zest and let it simmer until all the little cranberries pop. omgsh it is so good, and so pretty. you will never eat canned again!
My husband and I go to his 75 yr old aunt's house (Aunt Fran). She cooks the whole dinner for about 25 people every year with some help from the family. Very traditional dinner, turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, bean casserole, homemade bread, salad. For dessert another aunt brings homemade pies and pastry puffs for the kids. I don't know what I'm going to do this year because I've gone vegan...I guess I'll be eating a lot of mashed of potatoes!
Yes i have my own dish, i like to eat and love to make 'Masala Dhosa" (South Indian Dish)
and the "Karai Paneer" (Indian Dish)
Our new favorite is turkey beans. Several years ago, my son made the turkey but had nothing to sit the turkey on so he set the bird on a pile of beans. We ate the beans. Boy, were they good. Now, every year, everyone reminds him to make turkey beans.
Delores are you saying the bird is cooked on top of the beans, so that all the fat and juices cook through? I could see where the beans would then be yummy.
One of my favorites at T'giving is baked mac and cheese. It's "expected" that I bring this to any covered dish or other holiday meals I'm invited to. I wrote a HubMob hub with the recipes of my mom's family feast,including a recipe for the mac and cheese.

I think Money Glitch also wrote a hub on her family food traditions.
Used to do the whole thing at my grandparents' house. Turkey, stuffin, potatoes and more stuffing! But in the last few years, we've splintered off because the family gets bigger and bigger. Now it's at Wolfgang's, where my flashy uncle likes to shove a beer in my face every ten minutes. I usually end up ducking out early and wandering around Manhattan for about five hours. That's the thing about mixing steak and Guiness, you have to walk it off or you'll suffer from iron intoxication. Learned that the hard way. Amazing steak, though!
Homemade caramel rolls. If we don't have them my niece will die.
My dad makes awesome dressing. I usually eat a whole panful by myself over Thanksgiving weekend. I also love mashed potatoes with mounds of butter melted in the middle. Mac and cheese and rolls are also on my list of tops.
Everyone expects me to bring my corn casserole. I have a hub that includes the simple recipe. I also have a great Oatmeal Pie recipe that's basically Pecan Pie without the pecans. The link for it is found in this same hub.
Great Recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas
Yams with the marsh mellows on top. Honey baked Ham. Crunchy green bean casserole.
My grandma used to do the whole thing for about 35 people but she can't do it anymore so each family has thier own Thanksgiving feast. Mine is done the same way Grandma did hers. I love using all her recipes and making everything from scratch like she did. It is really an awesome time for my family. I also have my mom and dad come over for dinner after mom gets out of work. We have turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, olives, homemade rolls, pumpkin and blueberry pies. It really is great!
We have the whole, usual, thing; but the one somewhat odd thing is that I make potato stuffing (which my mother always did, and which, to me, is a must on Thanksgiving), even though we also have bread stuffing. The men usually end up having stuffing, stuffing, and then plain mashed potatoes - for starters.

We ate at noon, and I did pretty good. Still haven't had dessert yet. I'm saving that for din-din.
