So Turkey Day is coming up & thought we could share our recipes.. I'm hosting this year for my husband's side, only 5 of us but not really looking forward to it since none of my side of relatives can make it :/...

But I thought to make things more fun we could have a recipe thread if other's want to share traditions & dishes, etc :roll:

Besides all the normal things,I can tell you the southern way to go.

I fix some collard and mustard greens.We fry up some bacon before hand.Then take the bacon out and use the bacon grease to fry the greens in.Meanwhile I tear up the bacon and put chunks into the greens.Of course I'm seasoning them with pepper,seasoned salt,garlic salt/powder.
You have to make fried corn bread or biscuits to go with them.

There's plenty more.Like field peas and snaps,fried green tomatoes,stewed cabbage...... I could go on and on.Just let me know if you want the southern back woods recipes.Not really tempting I know,but darn are they tasty!

My fav thanksgiving/christmas dish is my grandmas california salad its a family tradition and most outsiders? in laws lol usually turn there noses up until we convince them to try it, its like ambrosia.
a bag of mini colored marshmallows
2 cans [small} of mandarine oranges { they work best cause they peeled}
about 250ml of sour cream { small conainer}
1-2 cups of coconut flakes depending on how much you like it
a can of crushed pineapple DRAINED

mix everything together minus 1 can of the oranges use that last can to decorate the top , best if made the day before and let sit overnight in the fridge.
I usually make a double batch and use the med size sour cream its Definately my fams favorite dish we fight over the left overs :)

Thats a riot, this is our BBQ get together dish :) We call is Ambrosia but no coconut. hmmm maybe I should try :)

We always have typical meal, BUT Mashed Potatoes. Most people up here make rice, not mashed potatoes and I just think thats weird cause what do you do with the peas! but I guess they dont have peas they ahve corn with the rice. anyway...

this is my fav for turkey day and xmas. My grams LOVES (aww she and my grandpo died this year so its the first holiday without them, just made me sad) they love pearl onions, here is a way to get both so we are all happy:

1 10 oz. bag very small white pearl onions unpeeled
1 1/2 pounds small brussels sprouts, trimmed
3 TBS. ( or more) prepared white horseradish
2 tsps. all purpose flour
1/8 tsp. ground allspice
3/4 cup whipping cream
3 tbs. butter
1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme

Peel onions, leaving core intact. Cut brussels sprouts in half through root end. Cook onions in large pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 5 minutes. Using large strainer, transfer onions to bowl; set aside to cool. Return water to boil; add more salt. Add brussels sprouts and boil until just tender, about 6 minutes. Drain well; cool.(Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Combine vegetables in medium bowl, cover and chill.)

Whisk horseradish, flour, and allspice in small bowl to blend; whisk in whipping cream. Melt butter in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add chopped thyme and stir for 30 seconds. Add vegetables to cream mixture and saute until heated through, and vegetables are coated, about 4 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, adding more horseradish by 1/4 teaspoonfuls, if desired. Transfer vegetables to bowl. Garnish with thyme sprigs, if desired.

soo soooo yummy!!!

This one always works (for me anyway).

Needed:

One half full 16oz MT. Dew bottle

Enough Rum to fill empty half of Dew bottle

Carefully add Rum into the Dew bottle, oh, don't spill any

Mix & place bottle in freezer to get really COLD

Remove from freezer & enjoy the mixture while wife is doing cooking

Repeat process during the day as needed :roll:

Enjoy your Turkey Day!
