Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Well, the turkey's been in for a couple of hours and my giblet stuffing will be coming out in about 15 minutes - I don't know how to stuff a bird so I bake it prior and then slice it and lay it in the pan with the turkey juices about 45 minutes before the bird is done. I know, it would be easier just to stuff it but it intimidates me for some reason! Well, everything is well on it's way - potatoes and non-giblet stuffing (for my sister-in-law who won't eat strange turkey parts Smile ) are all that's left to do. That and warm up the rolls - set up the "kids" table and it'll be time to EAT! Very Happy Then, time to clean up Crying or Very sad . Just got the paper so I'll be checking out the sale flyers as soon as I get off line and showered. I would also like to express the same sentiment that Debbie started and several of you have also expressed.....I am so glad to have found this group and all of you, my new friends! Very Happy It's nice to have found kindred spirts - and not just related to cooking. I love hearing about your lives and families and sharing the same with all of you. I hope everyone has a great day enjoying old traditions as well as new ones (Eric, I'm talking to you!). Eat, Drink and be Merry!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all those south of the 49th parallel. That is what the US/Canadian border is called isn't it? Anyhow I have fond memories of my thanksgiving feast last month. Got to love turkey and dressing and all the smells.

Fleur - where are you from? I thought I was the only Cannuk to be posting here.

Wrote my exam last night. Don't know how well I did with this one but I know if I failed it I did it with a better mark. This exam was not so much "if D equals xxxxxx then how much ESFT do you need to conduce to get xxxxxxxx. It was more theory and who tried what and results of experiments. But then considering how badly I did on the first one I had better not second guess myself. One more class and then the Xmas break. Two more exams. One in February and one in April.

It was minus 18 C (0 Fahrenheit) when I got up. Seems like winter is here. We still having the dusting of snow from two days ago.

My oldest son checked out yesterdays seat sale. He said it was actually reduced a bit. However, once you add the taxes and surcharges it is still over $1000. to fly from Vancouver to here. He made the comparison again to flying to warmer climates for less and then he suggested that (not this year) we Xmas somewhere warm if we are going to spend so much. Sounds good to me to have a non white Xmas for once. But as I said to him your father won't travel, has not and won't get a passport, and would I am sure be hurt if we all met and he stayed here alone. I am not prepared to make him live with the fruits of his stubbornness and what he has reaped over the years. He'd be Mr. Big Macho as usual but I am sure he would be hurt.

The Today show yesterday or the day before said how many calories one eats on Thanksgiving. So for you who celebrate it today my wish is that none of the over 5000 calories stick.

Have a great one.

Marlene

Hello Friends! I just wanted to stop by and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I have been busy since I got up yesterday morning. Everything is well under control for dinner! Yea!

We have finally got cool weather. It's actually colder here than the temps in New York. The emcees for the Macy's parade aren't all bundled up like they usually are. I was beginning to think we would never cool off.

This is what's on my menu for today:

Turkey
Dressing
Ham
Potato Casserole
Green Bean Casserole
Corn
Frozen Strawberry Salad
"Dun buttered" biscuits
Pumpkin Pie
Pecan Pie
Banana Cream Torte

I hope everyone enjoys this special day with your friends and family.

Hugs, Kenna Lou

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Hope everyone makes it to their destinations safe and sound. With frying the turkey, I don't have much to do this morning. Everything was done last night with the exception of baking the sweet potatoes, making mashed potatoes and stuffing the artichokes. So, I feel like a lady of leisure -- plenty of time to clean the house and do laundry -- my idea of leisure has changed lots over the last three decades of married life LOL!

I join in the chant that I'm thankful for everything in my life, for the health of my family and friends, and for all of the many friends I have made over the internet whose paths I never would have crossed otherwise. To people who don't understand the concept of "internet friends" and who think that those friendships are less than true because you don't "see" or "know" the other person, I send my sympathies.

Well, enough of the mush stuff. HI!!!! to all who were here and all to come and stop by today and .....remember...




CHRISTMAS IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER LOL!!!

Enjoy Smile

Queenietwo - That was my first post in this forum Very Happy

I've come in every now and again to read a few posts, but felt like I was invading. But the more I read the more I felt like I wasn't invading but getting to know everyone (sounds korny I know, but that's how I feel)

To answer your other question, I'm in southern Ontario, about 1 hour west of Toronto.

Enjoy your day everyone! Very Happy

Hi Fleur - I am in Northwestern Ontario. I have two grown kids in Toronto and one in Vancouver. So being in Ontario we are nearly neighbours. Only live about 1000 miles apart. Don't be shy. Keep on posting.
