Lynn I have so many but they are not my own recipes so I cant post them. I do love pumkin pie and pecan pie

Be sure to add a link to where you got them from. If not you can describe them and what is special about them.

OMWord...Lynn that is too funny..yet kinda creepy at the same time...LOL LOL
I'll think on the recipe and repost later...after I recover from the shock of the fully exposed turkey!

Beverly Mahone said...

I don't do anything special since my family is relatively small. But when I go to my girlfriend's home for Thanksgiving--we are alsways treated to "caribbean style" which includes fried turkey and other delicacies Americans aren't accustomed to.

Missed you at the Business Divas luncheon on Thursday. We had a blast!!!

Eileen Williams said...

Love your bikini clad turkey!!!
But, I'm a vegetarian so Thanksgiving isn't my top holiday. However, as Liz said, I do enjoy those pies!

Tammy, I thought the picture was creepy too; but my hubby that is was so funny.

Beverly, I am so sorry I could not make it. Some days I really wish I had employees to help keep things running. Hopefully, next time!

Muse, What time is dinner being served...I will bring my gang of 24 over to your house :)

I am not a Vegitarian; but I never have room on my plate for Turkey :)

OMgosh that picture is hilarious!

I was watching Food Network, Alton Brown's Good Eats Turkey Special the other night. I am very tempted to try his turkey cooking method which only takes 3 hours!

I may never look at turkey in quite the same way again!

We usually go to my mother-in-laws for Thanksgiving. She has the usual turkey and mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and candied sweet potatoes, but the one thing she makes that I look forward to all year is her fried corn! My mouth is watering just thinking about it and I still have two more weeks to wait!

Once I get thru laughing over that pic!!!! I once wrapped a ham in a pastry and decorated the outside with vines, leaves and grapes made of pastry! So impressed everyone and myself I haven't cooked since. lol

My hubby is a huge fan of sweet corn pudding. My favorite is stuffed mushrooms! The entire gang and them some gather here each year. We love it and our first purchase is Glad take home containers. We have about 25 this year and cook for about 75 so everyone gets to have the yummy leftovers.

I'm not the cook in our house. That honor goes to my husband. I do love a traditional dinner, since we don't eat that grandly on a regular basis. But once in a while I also like to break away. One year we grill barbeque pork chops, corn on the cob, and salad and invited our relatives over. It was so good.

Wow, we're having dinner at my brother's house...everyone is bringing something, and I'm in charge of the turkey and've just given me a great idea!! LOL!

That is such a funny turkey! :D I'm sorry that I don't have any recipes to share. I don't cook much on Thanksgiving.
