Planning Thanksgiving meal

Last year I made a traditional Thanksgiving meal for my husband and I.

It was pretty successful, but this year I want to make some different stuff.

What do you usually make or have for Thanksgiving?

You could make turkey again but use one of those punk turkeys that keep running you off the road!

I don’t have thanksgiving in U.K.
But perhaps you could make a nice turkey and ham pie

We don’t celebrate thanksgiving in my country, I’m not even sure what date thanksgiving is :sweat_smile:

But we do have something called “Morten’s evening”, where you eat duck or goose to commemorate a man named Morten who was hiding from someone in a poultry pen of some sort and was discovered because the birds made noise.
I’m not even kidding :smiley:

Haha!

I wish I could!

Those turkeys are absolute jerks, always messing with me,

But I don’t know if I could murder them,

Punch their little turkey faces maybe, but I prefer my animal products to come from the store where I can pretend they were never living creatures…

I always make a pumpkin bread for Thanksgiving,

Its delicious and just happens to be also vegan.

Seriously, give it a try:

(Cant find my recipe, but this one is very similar)

That’s actually a great idea!

Maybe some crawfish, too?

My aunt makes Brussels sprouts with bacon, and they’re very good.

Corn bread is delicious, too.

My husband’s family deep fries their turkey every year, and they love it. I’m excited that I’ll be able to try it this year, because I gave up on the vegetarian life.

I recommend Brussels sprouts fried in bacon fat and bacon pieces with pine nuts

My grandparents made amazing turkey and Brussel sprouts and gravy etc for thanks giving.

Crisps and drink (sherry)before dinner and pavlova for dessert.

The dinner was in their lovely home where my grand ma probably made so much herself like lampshades etc

I made a turkey for my x years ago.

We can not afford turkey but we have bought our ham already in freezer .

My other family in oz would mainly have bbq.

I apologise to my family and thank them too.

:pray:t3::two_hearts:

Wishing you guys a happy thanksgiving!
