I'm really big into celebrating Thanksgiving too. It was my father's favorite holiday....

We used to get up and watch the parade with him while mom cooked the dinner...and then it was on to the football games. It would take her 2 days to get all the food done...whew. Of course when we got old enough to help, we did! lol

There's a Pottery Barn just a couple miles up from here. I'll go check 'em out and see what they look like in real life. A good photog can make the worst piece of chit look good!

No, just a handful of friends. People I know who don't have anywhere to go for the holiday. I'll be cooking for days before! :lol:

RDNKJ 11-02-2011 09:28 PM

We always used to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade growing up!

Any holiday that involves food/gluttony is fine in my book! :lol:

my mom used to get up at the crack of dawn to prepare the turkey for the oven. i really dont like turkey. i just love the cranberry sauce, gravy, stuffing, corn, yams and other stuff that goes with the turkey. take all that away and i wouldnt touch it. i prefer my dads tamales he used to make. both my parents have passed on now, so as far as i know, nobody does it for the family.

Thanksgiving dinner's served late afternoon. Anytime after that there'll be plenty of food! :shades_sm

+++++++++++++++

I don't really like turkey that much either. I like it about once a year. On Thanksgiving, it's yummy! But any other time of year, no thanks.

subeeds 11-03-2011 01:15 AM

I'll bring the Sweet Potato Pone. LOL! That's my standard dish. since the kid has flown the nest, and there are just 2 of us we just do a baked chicken and dressing, the above mentioned pone, rolls and a veggie. I've kind of gotten bah humbug on Thanksgiving the last few years.

well, my mom used to strip the turkey after the dinner. then she would cut it into chunks and mix in mayo and season it for cold sandwiches later. not too bad.

subeeds 11-04-2011 02:45 AM

My favorite leftover is pot pie. I get a can of mixed veggies, some sort of cream soup, add the leftover turkey or chicken, some garlic, onions and peppers, nuke that stuff to blend the flavors a bit, then when it's cool, toss it in a pie crust, top it and bake.

:lol:

hey RDNKJ did you ever get to the pottery barn? i was wondering if you saw any solid true red dishes. i am looking for plates & bowls. i have never been there, i was also wondering if they carried silverware? i have been searching for REAL SOUP SPOONS. you know..the ROUND ones.

RDNKJ 11-07-2011 08:40 PM

@ trouble

@ ApacheFire

Yes, I did get to Pottery Barn this weekend. Both sets of salad plates are very nice looking. I ended up getting some of ones in the first pattern I posted.

I was tempted to get some of the other ones, too. But then decided against it. Trouble, I don't know how well that fan-tailed turkey salad plate goes with your platter. But they're nothing you'd be ashamed to have on your table! Very nice. Online they're only sold in sets of 4 (w/all 4 birds), but at the store here they were selling them individually.

Other than the salad plates I wasn't looking at dishes, so I didn't notice what all they had. Not much red, though. Right after Thanksgiving they'll put out all the Christmas stuff. There'll be plenty of red then!

Yeah, they have flatware, but they don't sell individual pieces. Only whole place settings or full sets. I wouldn't buy my flatware there anyway. It looks nice, but not nice enough for the price they charge. And for those prices I would expect silver-plate.

RDNKJ 11-07-2011 08:43 PM

I know I'm about to speak blasphemy, but...what is "pone?" I know it's food, but other than that I have no idea what it is!

pone |pōn|
noun (also corn pone or pone bread)
unleavened cornbread in the form of flat oval cakes or loaves, originally as prepared with water by North American Indians and cooked in hot ashes.

sqqqquuuueeeee!!..>KISSES to you RDNKJ!!..you're a doll for the info..I'll hit the Barn tomorrow!!!

THANKS A TON!!!


OH!!.and RE: Pone....where I come from it's just cornbread mix, that you cook in that cast iron pan that looks like long ears of corn....or . ....a corn stick pan...it's called pone , to us, because it's thinner and therefore, crunchier...which..most of the men in my family prefer....if I make square cornbread instead of the standard round cast iron skillet, I have to make several pans, because they will argue over the crunchier corner pieces...this can be allieviated by using the corn stick or pone style pan.....

Sweet potato pone is a lot different than what's made with cornmeal.
Sweet potato pone is as follows:
You need one sweet potato for each person. The original receipe I had said to grate them. I did that once. Now, I just cut them into small pieces. After you cut them up, mix some real butter and brown sugar in with them. I use about 1 tbls. brown sugar for each potato. I make mine in a 3 quart casserole, so I use about 2 1/2 sticks of softened butter. Bake it at 350 for about an hour to an hour and a half. I stick a fork in a few of the potato pieces to see if they are done. Then, top with small marshmallows and set it back in the oven to melt them over the top.
This is a variation on something an aunt of mine used to make. She was a Southern cook to the core, so I think this is an old Southern dish. LOL!
