Thanksgiving coming up; will you have turkey or ham or something else?


Not sure if I will have a turkey or not since I love baked stuffed chickens and others in the family like ham but if I find a small one that will bake up quickly I probably will. Love to smell them. My dad use to start having turkeys a week or two before thanksgiving; he just couldn't wait! I don't like to spoil the fun! How about you?

    I liked the dark meat too when i was younger because the white meat always seemed so dry but now we have moister meat I love the white best and wings on everything! So tasty and tender.

    Yes; coffee does seem a bit more special on a special day. A few minutes to reflect with a great cup of java. I love ham with raisin sauce but I haven't had it since Mom passed away and know I could not make it like hers.

    Yeah; that is why I like to have it if I can find one small enough. Older I get the harder it is to handle and stuff those big birds and they take up so much room. Big families though; I understand.

    Mine always was too; I liked turkey for Thanksgiving and ham for Christmas but as family dwindles it sometimes seems too much.

    Well I am sure it is not hard on you since that is your choice but it certainly would be for me. I could maybe go...half vegan. lol

    Yes I love it left over too. I tried jelly and pepper on a turkey sandwich once and it was so good I always make sure I have that even if on a roll or one slice of bread. Guess it is sort of like cranberry sauce so not surprising.
